The Greeks were scared when they saw their eight-point lead 1’54 from time disappear after Alex Abrines’ 3-pointer 15 seconds from the end (57-59) but they held on for the win. free throw line. Head to Berlin for Georgios Bartzokas’ men!

Olympiakos will face Real Madrid in the semi-final in a repeat of the final of the 2023 edition in the German capital (May 24-26).
