Their resillinace, gallantry and grit was massively hailed and lauded but at the end of the day, those traits alone couldn’t take Athens past the finishing line. Despite giving everything they had on the day, Athens ended up falling short infront of Barcelona, a side which was just too strong from them.

PAN vs FEN Fantasy Prediction
Despite being up against a Barcelona side, Howard Sant-Roos refused to be fazed by the identity of his opposition. He ended up with a staggering 17 points on the day, a performance which saw him rise in stature as he converted his points from the flanks with a high efficiency.
Marcus Foster was the reason Athens managed to take their affair against Barcelona the last time around all the way into overtime. He came alive for 24 points, a performance which once again saw him take charge of his side’s attacking docket.
5 points and 4 rebounds were more than enough to see us make 6.5 credit man, Leonidas Kaselakis the third successive pick from the Greek side.
This docket will also finally feature the first pick from Turkey based Fenerbache. Edgaras Ulanovas had 10 points, 4 assists and 3 boards against Bayern Munich, a showing which grew in stature given the stalwart team he pulled it off against.
Danilo Barthel hasn’t really come alive till now but this Athens side is just the defence he would have wanted to come across in the midst of his plight. He’s up against a team which has shipped points, a team which will find it tricky to obstruct Danilo’s ability to shoot inside the paint.
Jarell Eddie is someone well adept at shooting inside the paint as well to see him partner up with Danilo. Athens on the other hand see the staunch Konstantinos Mitoglou hammer his place in our side after his wordclass 16-12 double-double against Barcelona.
A side has behemoth as Bayern Munich had no answer to Jan Vesley. He went on a rampage, decimating the German side systematically to top score for his side on the day with 25 points and 8 boards.
Its that show of pure, clean shooting which sees Vesley be our star player while Mitoglou is the pro player.
Howard, Foster, Leonidas, Ulanovas, Mitoglou, Eddie, Barthel, Jan
