Olympiacos sentences Fenerbahçe and gets into the Euroleague Final Four


Olympiacos qualified this Tuesday for the Euroleague Final Four after beating Fenerbahçe 84-72, in a tie decided in the fifth and final game (3-2), where point guard Kostas Sloukas stood out in the Greek team due to his 22 points and his six assists, with a record included in this section.

Thus, Sloukas reached 1,500 assists in the maximum continental tournament and was the great protagonist in the Peace and Friendship Pavilion. He led a 15-0 run just before the break (from 29-31 to 44-31), key in the triumph of an Olympiacos that, despite being the regular league champion, has suffered to leave in the gutter his Turkish rival.

With countless alternations on the scoreboard, heart attack outcomes and baskets on the buzzer, this vibrant quarterfinal ‘playoff’ has booked a ticket for the Piraeus team to the Final Four to be held in Kaunas (Lithuania) from 19 to May 21th. There, his opponent will be the winner of the series between Monaco and Maccabi Tel Aviv (2-2).

On the other side of the table, Barça was the first club to seal its participation in the quadrangular tournament for the title. Having eliminated Zalgiris on the fast track (3-0), the Catalans will face the winner of the tie between Real Madrid and Partizán in ‘semis’, whose fifth chapter will be this Wednesday (9:00 p.m.) at the WiZink Center.
