After the great victory over Olympiacos in Owaka in the 15th round of the Stocksiman Basketball League, Panathinaikos Aktor leaves for Belgrade, where it will face Maccabi (25/1, 21:05, NovaSports 4 and live broadcast from SPORT24) in the league framework. Round 23 of the European League.
Ergin Ataman made statements before tomorrow's match, stressing among other things that the surprise victory over Olympiacos gave the team the stamp of a winner.
What Etman said in detail:
“For sure, the match we won against Olympiacos gave the team a winning character. This is very important because you cannot play well in every match. Sometimes you have problems, but in the end we found a way to win, which “gives us confidence to move forward. We have a very important match against Maccabi, whom we lost to in extra time in the first round match. “It will be a difficult match.”
Regarding behavior: “I think Kostas will be ready for the match against Armani. I think our medical staff combined with Sluka's efforts will allow him to start training at the beginning of next week. We need him very much because Veldosa will also be absent as before.” “I underwent surgery on the meniscus. Playing with one point is a big problem. I am sure that Kostas will return for the next matches in the Euroleague. Against Maccabi we will try to deal with the situation in light of the major absences of Kostas and Lucas.”
