Olympiacos players are unlikely to play with their hands down. Defeat is not in their plans. We don’t think they’ll let that happen. Bartzokas’ men defeated Anadolu Efes at home in the regular season.

Despite the fact that Olympiacos finished second in the regular season, four places ahead of Efes with three wins, the bookies don’t consider them favourites for the upcoming game.

Anadolu Efes is already playing in the Turkish championship play-offs. On 11 May, Shane Larkin was injured in the first game of the quarterfinals. The injury didn’t seem serious and on May 13, he returned for Game 2, in which he played nearly 26 minutes. Larkin, then, was okay, but Efes was not, since he lost and Pinar Karsiyaka tied the series.
Anadolu Efes’ first opponent in the Euroleague’s play-offs was Olimpia Milano. Despite their best efforts, the Italians were unable to put up much resistance. Only in one game did Messina’s men win. In the other three games, Efes got the result they needed. In their last game against Olimpia, Anadolu Efes won with a score of 75-70.
In the last game of the series against Olimpia Milano, Tibor Pleiss scored 25 points and 6 rebounds.
