Egypt striker Ahmed ‘Kouka’ Hassan scored twice to help Greek champions Olympiacos achieve a 4-2 victory over Aris Thessaloniki on Wednesday.

Kouka netted his first goal just before the break, giving his side the chance to go to the locker room with a comfortable 2-0 advantage.

The towering striker stole the ball after a missed pass from a Thessaloniki defender, firing home with a nice lob.

The Egyptian international completed the rout after converting a penalty with 11 minutes remaining from time, taking his goal tally to eight this season.

Olympiacos have already won the Greek league after securing the title last month.  

The 27-year-old has a chance to win another title with Olympiacos this season when they face AEK in the Greek Cup final later this month.

Kouka re-joined Olympiacos for the second successive season on a short-term loan deal in January. He spent last season on loan at the Greek giants from Portugal's Braga.
