The presentation – Milan-AS Monaco

Good evening to all OA Sport readers, and welcome to the LIVE LIVE of the 6th round match of the Euroleague 2023-2024. Virtus Bologna returns to the Segafredo Arena and welcomes Anadolu Efes Istanbul in a match of no small importance for the rankings.

A somewhat particular situation regarding the Turks, who won the two most feasible home games, but when they found themselves facing the big teams (Olympiacos, Real Madrid and Barcelona) they didn’t exactly keep up. Tense environment since the beginning of the season also due to the events related to Shane Larkin, deprived of the possibility of playing as a Turk in Turkey after having “paid” for an absence in the national team considered to be the cause of the knockout at the Pre-Olympic. A fact, however, clearly created after the fact.

Three ex-Italian championship players return to the Segafredo Arena (after the usual interlude at PalaDozza, forced by scheduling reasons of the Bolognese exhibition pavilion that hosts it): Darius Thompsonwho by marriage also has Italian citizenship and was in Brindisi for two seasons, Tyrique Jonesin Pesaro in the 2021-2022 year, e Derek Willis, between Brindisi and Venice (2020-2021 and 2022-2023). To find out whether there will be or not Erkan Yilmaz this evening.

These are the words of Luca Banchi on the eve from the official website: “There is great anticipation for this race, we arrive on the emotional wave of four consecutive successes but with the awareness that we will be facing one of the candidate series for F4. Efes is a team that has achieved success more than any other in the last five years, winning two titles. Despite the change of coach and some new arrivals, it has a team structure and identity that will make it one of the protagonists. It will be a special evening, we will need a great performance: we will finally return to the Virtus Segafredo Arena and we plan to do it in front of a large audience. We hope it can be an exciting and engaging match, capable of giving our fans another joy and achieving a feat, because that’s what it would be when you find yourself facing teams of Efes’ talent and experience.“.

The Virtus Segafredo Bologna-Anadolu Efes tap-off will be raised at 8.30pm. Have fun with OA Sport’s LIVE LIVE!
