"We have trained very well right from the start of the season", he said. "There will be some ups and downs for us during the season, but the most important thing is to stay on the ground and keep getting better. Olympiacos are a great team. They have won the Euroleague trophy two times in the last five seasons and they have great Greek and foreign players. Our plan is to give our best and we will see at the end of the game where will that take us. The fact that Olympiacos will play that game at Heraklion Arena gives us no advantage. It would be maybe better for us if they played at their home court in Piraeus because they will be even more motivated to play well in front of their fans in Heraklion."
