[AMERICANS ABROAD] It might be too late to earn them consideration for the 2010 U.S. World Cup team, but Eddie Johnson and Freddy Adu enjoyed their best game together since joining Aris this winter. Johnson scored twice, while Adu assisted on one of Johnson's goals and earned a penalty that was missed in Aris' 2-0 victory over Olympiakos on Wednesday in the Greek playoffs for next season's European competitions.

Adu's cross found Johnson for the first goal in the 39th minute.

In the 53rd minute, Adu was taken down for a penalty kick, but Sergio Koke's spot kick was saved by goalkeeper Antonis Nikopolidis.

Johnson clinched the win in stoppage time when he pounced on a defensive mistake at the top of the penalty area and put away the insurance goal into an empty net.

Olympiakos had earlier hit the woodwork twice.

The playoff series will consist of six rounds involving four teams. In Wednesday's other game PAOK and AEK tied, 0-0.

The winner of the playoffs will play in the third qualifying round of the Champions League. The other three will play in the Europa League. Greek champion Panathinaikos has clinched a berth in the Champions League.

GREEK STANDINGS:
4 (+4 bonus) Olympiakos
4 (+3 bonus) PAOK
3 (0 bonus) Aris
2 (+1 bonus) AEK
