In a match that brought him face to face with an opponent at worst and at best inferior but able to close the gaps with his fists, Olympic He is now invited to play in three consecutive finals maybe To justify the regular season championship and the praise laden on his shoulders by the righteous and the unjust.

To redeem, at the same time, the sweat of seven months combined. As it progressed throughout the winter, Olympiacos earned the right to say goodbye to the “first leg” early, on May 5, just like last year.
