The two “eternal enemy” teams will face each other for the 16th time in the finals for the Greek Basket League tonight.
The Greek Basket League finals open tonight, with Olympiacos hosting Panathinaikos at the Peace and Friendship stadium in Piraeus at 7:30 pm, Greece time. Olympiacos coach Yannis Sferopoulos will bring along a full roster, while newly appointed Panathinaikos coach Argyris Pedoulakis will not have Vladimir Jankovic or Giorgos Papagiannis with his team due to injuries. In addition, Olympiakos will try to make good use of the home advantage they acquired during the regular season.
In the 15 times the two teams have faced off in the finals series, Panathinaikos has taken the trophy 10 times, while Olympiacos five.
