"Fenerbahce is one of the best teams in Europe in recent years. Zeljko Obradovic is the best coach in the last two years. I have great respect for him. Obradovic is part of the history of our team. This is certainly a very difficult game. We have to be excellent in defense and control the defensive rebounds. Overall we have to play a great game to win", said the 44-year-old Spanish coach.
"It's a very important game for us. Fener is a great team. We should beware of the mistakes we made in previous games and not repeat them. Also, we have to follow our plan for 40 minutes to win the game", was the opinion of experienced international center Giannis Bourousis.
