1993–94 Greek Cup

The Greek Cup 1993–94 was the 52nd edition of The Greek Football Cup, or Greek Cup for short.

Tournament details

Totally 72 teams participated, 18 from Alpha Ethniki, 18 from Beta, and 36 from Gamma. It was held in 6 rounds, included final.

It was a very interesting competition with undecided matches and led in a Final between Panathinaikos and AEK Athens, a pair that had not appeared in a Greek Cup Final for 45 years, since the last confrontation between the two teams in the final match was in 1949. AEK Athens qualified in the Final after 11 years, while Panathinaikos had eliminated before PAOK in penalty shootout, after two "white draws".

The final match was the one of two more shocking Finals in history of Greek Cup, after the Final of 1976. Panathinaikos preceded 2–0 and appearred to win, however, in a few minutes to its end, AEK Athens accomplished to draw, to precede in the start of extra time and to be drawn, in order finally to lose the Cup in penalty shootout. At the same time they lost The Double, while the same year they won the last championship in their history, until 2009.

Remarkable in the competition was also the bombardment of goals, almost in all phases and mainly in second legs. Characteristically, in second matches of Second Round, 16 in the number, were marked 64 goals, mean 4 goals per match, and in corresponding of Third Round 30 goals (in 8 matches).

Also, it is remarkable that in unique two from 16 groups that included two Alpha Ethniki teams, it happened to be drawn opponents Olympiacos and Iraklis in Group 16, that later balloted again in quarter-finals, but also AEK Athens and Panathinaikos in Group 14, that is to say the pair of the Final.
