Deprived of their last two Euroleague meetings because of Covid-19 – on the floor of ASVEL then at home against UNICS Kazan – Sasa Obradovic’s men return to European competition more than two weeks after their success against Maccabi Tel Aviv (82-76). Faced with an opponent within its reach, the Roca Team intends to continue and continue its rise in the standings.

In the first leg in mid-November, the Roca Boys had won 94-71 after a controlled game from start to finish. Since then, the Bavarians have alternated the good and the less good (5 wins for 4 defeats). In the standings, Bayern Munich occupies 11th place with a record of 8 wins for 10 losses. The German club, coached by Italy’s Andrea Trinchieri, have just ended a three-game losing streak by winning against Zalgiris Kaunas (74-65). In the event of victory, the Roca Team would come back to the height of its evening opponent in the standings.

If Mike James (14.3 points and 6.1 average assists), Alpha Diallo or Dwayne Bacon perform well under Sasa Obradovic, the danger on the German side will inevitably come from the Serbian pivot Vladimir Lucic (13.2 points and 5.1 rebounds). Between the latter and Donta Hall, the high-altitude duel promises to be epic. The Bavarians will be deprived of their American playmaker Darrun Hilliard, injured in the knee.

“For us every Euroleague game now is act or die. So we will go to Munich with a lot of ambition. We took advantage of this non-match period to work on various tactics, whether defensively or offensively, which will be useful for the matches we will play in the future. The most important thing will be to show a good face against Bayern Munich, ”said Sasa Obradovic, Roca Team coach.
