Andreas Michalopoulos (Greek: Ανδρέας Μιχαλόπουλος) (born January 23, 1949), is a former Greek footballer (striker) born in Patras. One of the most gifted strikers of his generation, he was a member of the great Panachaiki football team that impressed Greece in the seventies and qualified to the 1974 UEFA Cup.
Michalopoulos' potential was undoubtedly great. He was, however, as talented as unlucky. Before the UEFA Cup 1973-74 game against GAK, an injury seemed to put an early end to his career when it was at its best. The young striker managed to help his team some more years, but he only played 48 games in five seasons until 1979, when he officially retired.
After the end of his professional career, Michalopoulos remained in Panachaiki as a valuable member of it's organisation. He has coached the senior team in the late 90's as well as at the beginning of the 1996-97 season. Finally, he has also been the coach of the Greek junior national team.
Andreas Michalopoulos had 135 First Division appearances with Panachaiki and scored 30 goals.
