Bayern is now in the lead for the first time. Actually, it’s not a good attack and with the shot clock running out, Ognjen Jaramaz has to take a heavy shot from the turn over Nick Calathes. The ball bounces onto the ring, but Othello Hunter taps the offensive rebound into the basket.
Important answer from Munich! After a throw-in from the baseline, Ognjen Jaramaz is blocked on the left wing and brings Munich back on track with a three-pointer.
The favorite from Barcelona has the better start. Munich are inattentive after a misthrow by Nicolás Laprovíttola, allowing Nigel Hayes to collect a slight offensive rebound. He plays the pass up to Nick Calathes, who goes straight back to Nikola Mirotić for easy points on the basket.
Both teams start with points. Nick Weiler-Babb gets the switch to Nikola Mirotić and attacks him with a half-distance shot. His graduation goes through the ring.
Game five runs and Brandon Davies wins the jump ball for Barcelona. However, it must be interrupted again immediately, since the shot clock does not work.
Who will make it into the Final Four? Munich starts with Nick Weiler-Babb, Nihad Đedović, Vladimir Lučić, Augustine Rubit and Leon Radošević. Nicolás Laprovíttola, Nick Calathes, Nigel Hayes, Nikola Mirotic and Brandon Davies.
Defense is also a key to the sensation for Bayern guard Nick Weiler-Babb: “We have to transfer defense in game five. It’s now win or go home and it’s hard to win in Barcelona. But we’re playing to do exactly that.” Because despite the balanced series, today’s favorite is clear. “We remain the underdog, nothing has changed about that,” explains head coach Andrea Trinchieri before the match.
The opponent from Barcelona has the best offensive of the EuroLeague season. The team around top star Nikola Mirotić scored 49.1% from the field this year and is also the best three-man team in the EuroLeague with 39.8%. The last game of the series was all the more remarkable, where the Munich defense managed to keep this offensive with only 52 points. A good defensive performance from Andrea Trinchieri’s team will again be required today.
At the weekend, Munich won the dress rehearsal against Würzburg with 92:57. Bayern only needed a few minutes from the key players and benefited from an outstanding fruit with 18 points in just 14 minutes.
Can Munich actually create the sensation? With a hard-fought 59:52 victory against the favorites from Catalonia, Bayern reached the deciding game five of the best-of-five series. Thus, the table night of the regular season from Munich today has the chance to assert itself against the first from Barcelona and to qualify for the Final Four in Belgrade.
Hello and welcome to the quarterfinals of the EuroLeague between FC Bayern Munich Basketball and FC Barcelona! Today the deciding fifth game of the series takes place. Tip-Off is at 8 p.m. at the Palau Blaugrana. Have fun reading along!
