"We face an experienced and tough team. It would be a difficult away game, we have to stay focused and avoid defensive mistakes. The winning club will be very close to qualification, for Buducnosts especially would like final in front of its fans. Our primal target was to be competitive at Eurocup, after years of absence, if we manage to advance at the Last 32 we will be really content", said the Greek coach.
Vassilis Symtsak stated that Aris has to be very careful at defense against Omar Cook and win the battle of rebounds in order to take a positive result.
