THE Eleftheria Pleuritou equalized for the European champions as the clock ticked down 5:47 making it 1-1, while at 4:21 p.m Christmas gave Aleksandar Ciric’s team the lead for the first time. From that point on both teams gave a recital of missed attacks resulting in the 2-1 to stay until the end of the eight-minute period.
