In the decisive third quarter-final duel of the EuroCup with the Russian representative Unics Kasan, the leader of the Bundesliga won 91:81 (46:42) and can continue to dream of winning the triumph.
In front of 5845 spectators at the Audi Dome, Reggie Redding was with 23 points the most successful marksman of the hosts, who will be confronted with the Turkish top club Darüssafaka Istanbul in the round of four. The game will be played between the age of 20. and 28. March again in “best of three”mode.
“Kazan will take the game back to a very high physical level,”warned coach Sasa Djordjevic, after his team failed to use the first match point last Friday (73:80).
In fact, it was close and extremely competitive right from the start. Bayern star Devin Booker was already condemned to watch in the middle of the third quarter after his fifth foul, but his team-mates were able to score ten points (78:68).
