Benetton replaces Orlandina in Eurocup

Benetton TrevisoThere won't be a game between two Benetton's in Eurocup this season. At least not in the qualifying round. Orlandina was supposed to play in Eurocup regular season but the club was removed form Italian league so its place was given to another Italian club.

Benetton Treviso had to play against Benetton Fribourg (Switzerland) in the first qualifying round. But the Swiss side was automatically moved to the second round after their opponents were promoted to the regular season group stage.

Benetton Fribourg will face Gran Canaria in the second qualifying round. The winner will qualify for Group E which already has Azovmash Mariupol, Lietuvos Rytas and Asvel.

Meanwhile Benetton Treviso will take Orlandina's palce in Group C alongside Besiktas, Khimki and either Le Havre, Triumph Lyubertsy or Oostende.

Eurocup First Qualifying round starts next Tuesday (October 14).
