Basketball | Berg became Everest: FC Bayern needs sensation
FC Bayern Munich needs a basketball sensation for the historic first German move into the final four of the Euroleague.
The 66:75 against FC Barcelona in game three of the series in the best-of-five mode left traces at the German top team. “We started badly by giving nine points to Nico Laprovittola and eight free throws in the first quarter to Nikola Mirotic. So the mountain that had to be climbed became an everest,” said Bayern coach Andrea Trinchieri.
With a 1-2 deficit, game four will now become a knockout situation for the Munich team on Friday evening (8:45 p.m.).
“You are the favorite and we are definitely the underdog with injured players. It is now as always: You take your backpack home, who is full of crap, look at it and try to find solutions,” said Trinchieri. The final Four of the Euroleague rises from May 19 to 21 in Belgrade. So far, no German team has made it into this round of the best four teams.
