Before these 2 games, I am sure nobody gave a chance to Olympiacos to win them, not even 1 game. First, they were facing the main favourite to win the Euroleague this season, FC Barcelona a team that looked to be undefeated at home. Then, in 48 hours, the Greeks had to make a long travel to Serbia where they had to fight against one of the toughest squad on their own court.
Fatigue after 2 large trips, lack of rest, short time to recover all could be the perfect excuses to lose the second game against Crvena Zvezda. But Printezis & CO. find the motivation and energy to win the second game on the road.
It doesn’t look like the same Olympiacos that was destroyed last week by CSKA with 20 points margin. The team found again the chemistry and the smart game they usually play, after recovering from the Coronavirus and injuries. With a healthy and complete roster, Olympiacos Piraeus is a very dangerous team than can surprise anybody. The experience said its word in both games. Dominating Barca in Palau Blaugrana and then coming back from 14-30 against Crevena Zvezda are the proofs of the quality.
It’s amazing how this team can play even now when the budget is not so big and the roster is not the best. Spanoulis, Printezis, Sloukas, Papanikolaou and coach Bartzokas are orchestrating good chemistry for the whole squad that gives results. Good job, guys!
