The Best Goal award of the 1st matchday was awarded to Rodrigo Galo playing for AEK, who topped the competition organised by Super League, the Panhellenic Association of Professional Players (PSAP) and NOVA. The award was presented to Rodrigo Galo by Mr Stelios Serafidis.
After the ceremony, the AEK player stated the following:
I am very happy for this goal I scored, but I am even happier because this goal helped the team win the match. I hope I can continue helping my club in the next matches too either by scoring or just by playing. I mostly favour my right foot and like crosses and taking shots. There are times though such as this one when I was in a good position, took the shot with my left and scored."
Stelios Serafidis pointed out the following:
"I thank FC AEK who invited me to present this award to Galo for his amazing goal. It was an impressive goal. An unexpected, powerful and well-balanced shot. A satisfying goal. Like excellent, direct and spectacular shots. In this match, AEK played like the AEK of old and that's why fans were satisfied. Our team gave reason for hope and expectations for something better."
