Mehdi Abeid's eighth goal of the season helped to put Panathinaikos through to the final of the Greece Cup on Wednesday.
The on-loan Magpies midfielder struck in the 20th minute of their sem-final with OFI to level the aggregate score after To Trifylli trailed 1-0 from the first leg.
That forced extra time at the Stadio ApÃ³stolos Nikolaidis, during which two goals from Marcus Berg put the Athens outfit through.
Meanwhile Curtis Good is also hoping to play in a cup final this season.
The Australian defender - who started last season's Capital One Cup final for Bradford City - has recovered from injury and could now come into contention for Dundee United's Scottish Cup final against St. Johnstone next month.
