From then on, Olympiacos went with many problems to the Spanish capital, as the derby with Panathinaikos AKTOR for the Stoiximan Basket League it cost him double and… triple. On the one hand, of course the defeat with a score 85-80 which was a blow to his prestige, since he was from the “eternal rival”.
