Turkish Airlines EuroLeague co-leaders Olympiacos Piraeus have announced a new club record by selling out Peace and Friendship Stadium for the fourth consecutive time and fifth overall this season for Friday's game against defending champion Anadolu Efes Istanbul.
Olympiacos marks fourth straight sellout for Efes visit
Olympiacos sold out its three previous EuroLeague games – against EA7 Emporio Armani Milan, Real Madrid and Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv – and it is no coincidence that the Reds won all three games to remain undefeated at home in 2023.
Efes makes its first visit to Piraeus since downing Olympiacos in last season's EuroLeague semifinals. In a game that went down to the wire, Efes edged Olympiacos 74-77 on a buzzer-beating three-point shot by Vasilije Micic.
The last time these teams met at Peace and Friendship Stadium, the game was also decided at the buzzer in what was another instant classic. That time, Olympiacos needed overtime to edge Efes 87-85 on a game-winning three-pointer by Kostas Sloukas.
Both teams have retained the same core of players, which makes this showdown even better. Don't miss it!
