Panathinaikos are through to the second round of the Uefa Cup following a 3-0 win and 5-1 aggregate success over Artmedia Bratislava.
The Greeks were in control from the off after securing a first leg advantage and they made no mistake in the return.
The Slovakians battled bravely, but found themselves up against it before half-time when Peter Burak was dismissed for a professional foul.
Dimitrios Papadopoulos slotted home the ensuing penalty, although the killer blow did not arrive until injury time when Papadopoulos slotted home his second.
The former Burnley striker completed his hat-trick in the 73rd minute when he netted his second penalty of the contest.
