In the second game of the quarterfinal series, FMP bounced back after the defeat in Game 1, beat Cedevita Olimpija at home in Belgrade, and forced Game 3 of the series 102-96.

It has been a clash, in which the Panthers have been ahead all since the beginning and have deservedly come up with a win, that will secure them at least another game this season. Game 3 will be played in Ljubljana and the winner of the decisive third clash will qualify for the Semifinals, where they will face either Partizan Mozzart Bet or SC Derby.

Ahead of the game, just like in all other Quarterfinal games played this weekend, a minute of silence has been observed in memory of the victims of a shooting tragedy in Serbia over the past week.

In a game of ups and downs, where FMP was in front throughout the game, but Cedevita Olimpija kept coming back, the teams were close for the last time after Cedevita Olimpija’s comeback with 7 minutes to go, when the score was 78:77 in favor of the hosts. FMP Soccerbet replied with an 8:0 run and were ahead by 9 points with 6 minutes left on the game clock. As it turned out, Cedevita Olimpija did not manage to reply again all until it has proved to be too late and these were the crucial moments.
