Martin: «We have to play with confidence» (vid)

Olympiacos will be playing against CSKA tomorrow (22/10, 19:00 CET), for the 5th round of the Euroleague and according to Hassan Martin, the team will have to play with confidence to come back with a win.

“I think it’s going to be a very hard game. They are among the League’s elite”, the American center pointed out and went on to say: “We will need to play hard, come on the floor confident and avoid too many turnovers, because they are a really good team. Just like I said before, to win, we are going to need to play with confidence, not allow open shots and play hard defense, because they have size. If we play hard, I think we can make it”.

Up to now, defense has given the ‘reds’ great results and as Hassan Martin admits, they are going to continue betting on it. “We have very good defensive rhythm right now and this is a good step. We need to continue the same way and up our tempo, especially against such a strong team like CSKA. We can’t relax. We need to remain solid”.

It was the end of the '30s when the Olympiacos Basketball team was founded with players form the "Ionidio" School. Great personalities of Greek basketball wore the 'red' shirt, coaches wrote history, victories came and Olympiacos played a leading role inside and outside the Greek borders.
