Olympiacos travel to Istanbul with the primary goal of winning the 4th EuroLeague trophy in their history, while at the same time they want to follow up on a “golden” decade full of transcending successes.

The Red-and-whites had a tough time overcoming the obstacle of Anadolu Efes in the playoffs of the competition but they ensured their participation in the 10th Final Four in their history, where they’ll be facing behemoths of European basketball like Real Madrid, CSKA Moscow, but also Fener, who look more ready than ever.

In fact, the situation could have been even better for Olympiacos if they had managed to be more effective the previous times they went after the title. To be precise, the Greek team counts 3 trophies in 9 participations, which is a figure of 33.3%, while they’ve played in 7 finals and have celebrated in 3 of those, that is, a 42.8% figure.
