The Bayern basketball players have to create a small miracle Wednesday (8.45 p.m. / live on Magenta Sport)!
In the Euroleague they are 0-2 behind in the quarter-finals against Olimpia Milan. After two away bankruptcies, the first game is now rising in the Audi Dome. And national player Paul Zipser (27) makes it clear: “Nobody wants to be thrown out here with 0: 3.”
In the “Best of Five” series, Bayern would end up in the premier class if they went bankrupt again. Zipser: “We want to show everyone that we belong in the playoffs.” Bayern were the first German team to fight their way into the knockout phase.
Coach Andrea Trinchieri (52) becomes almost philosophical when he thinks of the game: “It’s time to risk everything. Whatever we talk about now is less important than what we do. It’s time to do it. “
The Munich team has already shown in the main round this season that they can do it. Sports director Daniele Baiesi (45): “We have proven that we are competitive.”
But none of that counts on Wednesday evening. And: In order to reach the semi-finals, they need a total of three wins in a row against Milan.
