Without ignoring the importance of competitive problems, Mr Kostas Papanikolaou considers that the Olympic can make up for it in Tuesday’s match against Fenerbahce (19:45). The Piraeus left early in the morning for Istanbul, without Kostas Sloukas and with Alec Peters doubtful.
“Every player is a serious absence for us. We need all the players and all the pieces of the puzzle. From then on, we can’t look at what we don’t have, but we have to focus on what we have and develop it. We have proven in previous matches that we can do it, so this time we have to do something similar“, emphasized the leader of the team.
“There wasn’t much time. We had a game yesterday, we had a game on Friday… But that’s the way the schedule is, we’re not the only team that has so many games in such a short space of time. I think, however, that we all have the experience to put our minds down and have the necessary mental preparation“, he added.
As for the Turkish team? “It won’t be the same team as the one we faced in SEF and it certainly won’t be the same game. He had many absences in the first match. Now she will have her world on her side, in a home difficult for anyone to play. As far as the tactical part is concerned, there is a lot to be aware of. It’s Calathes, it’s Wilbekin, it’s Motley, it’s the forwards they have… In general, they have a plurality and many players who on their night can do you damage. That’s why we can’t single someone out. We must, through our tactics, limit our opponent’s trump cards, in order to tip the tide in our favor».
