After the derby with Olympic and the coolness at the premiere, o Panathinaikos continues his obligations in the Euroleague, welcoming it Bayern Munich (12/10, 21:15, NovaSports 4) for the 2nd matchday.
The Greens have not entered the season well, with the excitement of the summer already turning to nervousness, stress and pressure. The two defeats against the “eternal” rival certainly didn’t help, with Ergin Ataman… lashing out after the win against Marousi over the mentality of his players.
In these difficult conditions, the “greens” face his “Bavarians”. Pablo Lasso, for the second time in a short period of time, after they had defeated them with a score of 80-73 in the framework of the “Pavlos Giannakopoulos” tournament. Panathinaikos will look for a reaction and psychological victory, having in front of him a team that does not… frighten, but is certainly not an easy “prey”. Bayern is strengthened with excellent players such as Carsen Edwards, Devin Booker and Serge Ibakawhile the existence of Lasso on the bench guarantees a good course compared to previous years.
Beyond the German team, Panathinaikos he will have to beat absenteeism as well. Kostas Sloukas and Dino Mitoglou he is definitely out, the former with a slight contusion on the lower leg of the left leg and the latter with a contusion on the gastrocnemius. It is also doubtful Ioannis Papapetrouwho has been dealing with a knee problem for days and his participation will be decided at the last minute.
The OAKA match will be directed by Ilja Belosevic (Serbia), Carlos Peruga (Spain) and Mario Majic (Slovenia). The first had managed Olympiacos-Panathinaikos 81-73 on 03/31/2023. The other two did not whistle last year’s Panathinaikos match.
