Olympiakos-Real in basket final
Olympiakos Piraeus will defend their Euroleague basketball title against Real Madrid in the final today after both teams recorded victories at London’s 02 Arena late Friday.
In a rematch of the climax to last year’s European season, Olympiakos pulled clear of CSKA Moscow in the first quarter and eventually won 69-52.
Real then came back from nine points down in the last quarter to overpower arch-rivals Barcelona 74-67 in the other semi-final.
Barcelona take on CSKA for third place this afternoon before Real and Olympiakos clash later in the evening.
