Today, Friday in London kicks off the Final four basketball Euroleague. Defending champion of the tournament Greek “Olympiakos” was brought to the British capital, with nine of those players that won the title last year, including MVP of the season, the point guard Vassilis Spanoulis. Rival Olympiacos in the semi-final match will be Russia’s CSKA, who lost to him in last year’s final.
“Everyone knows that to win the trophy again is much harder than the first time, said Spanoulis. But the main thing is that we again made it to the Final four, and we are expecting a very important match”.
In last year’s final, CSKA missed the victory, taking the match by 19 points, and configured for revenge.
“Never in my life was not such that after losing the final the following year I played against the same team, said Nenad Krstic. – The mere fact of participation in the Final four puts you under psychological pressure. Can’t say super regular or not, but definitely strong.”
In another, a fully Spanish semifinal match will meet “real” Rudy Fernandez and Barcelona Juan Carlos Navarro.
