The trip to Greece to face Olympiacos can be a challenge for AX Armani Exchange Olimpia Milan and Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv

The first two-game week of the 2020-21 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season already hammered by the concerning coronavirus spread also faces travel issues for AX Armani Exchange Olimpia Milan and Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv ahead of their trip to Greece to face Olympiacos, Wednesday and Friday, respectively.

A nation-wide strike scheduled for Thursday will directly affect both visiting teams. The Italian outlet will not be able to depart from Athens Thursday, while the Israeli club can’t arrive on the same day.

For this reason, the game between Olympiacos and Milano has been rescheduled for 18:30 CEST (initially 20:00), to allow the Italian team to be able to travel back, due to the strike of Greek air traffic controllers which start at midnight.

The involved parties are likely to find suitable solutions. The possibility of Maccabi’s game moved to Saturday is among eventual outcomes.
