“Our priority is to stop Printezis and Milutinov. Olympiacos will play without Spanoulis and Strelnieks, who are key players and not only score points, but create open shots for their teammates,” the Lithuanian coach said.

“We are expecting Olympiacos to play at the same high standards as they did against Bayern Munich,” Jasikevicius added.

This is a must-win game for both clubs, which are fighting for the final play-off spot. Olympiacos is at 14-14, whereas Zalgiris is at 13-15.
