The “reds” made their worst game this season against Ilysiakos in a game that was very much alike last season’s in the Peace and Friendship Stadium. It took the “reds” for their captain Vassilis Spanoulis to step up (he returned to courts after a twenty days absence) in order to edge the “yellow-blacks” 77-73.
With only eleven players, since Spanoulis, Mantzaris, Papadopoulos and Katsivelis were left out due to injuries, Olympiacos won for the second time in a row away from home in 2012 and all the more in a very difficult court.
Without its injured captain, Vassilis Spanoulis, the “reds” did their part in France and beat Nancy 74-79. Nevertheless, their victory did not bring the desired result which had been making the top spot of their group, since FB Ulker edged Cantu in Italy.
