"It is a very important game for us", the 57-year-old Serb said. "Even if Galatasaray has won 2 games in the Top 16 and they have no chances to qualify, we expect a difficult game. Some players have left the team but we never forget that with this roster they beat Fenerbahce. So it’s clear that we have to play a very good game if we want to win".
Panathinaikos power forward Antonis Fotsis agrees with his coach... "Every game in the Top 16 is very difficult. All teams are motivated the most when they are playing at home and in front of their fans. We know that it is a very important game for us. We respect our opponents and we have to play very good in both sides of the court if we want to win".
