Despite having a poor showing in Europe, Panathinaikos continues to dominate the Greek Super League after winning last season’s league campaign.

Panathinaikos has 14 wins and two losses in the Greek League; this is Bentil’s second campaign of a two year deal the former Providence College standout signed after moving from Peristeri.
