The basketball players of Bayern Munich are confident in the EuroCup quarter-final against the Russian top club Unics Kazan.
“We have proven in recent weeks that we have the character for such challenges,” said coach Sasa Djordjevic before the duel on Tuesday night.
Two wins are needed in the best-of-three series to progress. On Friday it continues in Kazan, the third game would take place on 14 March again in Munich Audi Dome.
“Unics played in the EuroLeague last season and always aims to get back over the EuroCup win,” warned Djordjevic. The title winner automatically qualifies for the premier class. Kazan won the EuroCup in 2011 and reached the final in 2014. “The task is very difficult,” explained Djordjevic.
Bayern-guard Nihad Djedovic also faces problems: “Kazan are a very good team and home strong, they have a lot of experienced players and it will be a very tough series for us.”
To start the Bayern want to give their fans about two weeks after the triumph in the German Cup 1000 liters of free beer.
