Rokas Giedraitis might need some help. If the basketball players of Alba Berlin in front of the away game on Wednesday at Rytas Vilnius (18 clock, live at Magenta sports) entered the hall, his teammates, the Lithuanians prefer. Otherwise, Giedraitis may be running in the wrong cabin. After all, before the winger moved to the start of the season to Berlin, he was for three years in Vilnius. "For me, it is certainly a bit weird to come this Time as a guest in the hall, which was until the summer of my home hall," says Giedraitis.
However, not only the Lithuanians in Vilnius. It is already meeting the third in the Eurocup between the two Clubs since 2012. The balance sheet is balanced with the three Victories. In the last season both Teams won the games your home. Giedraitis scored for the Lithuanians, five and nine points. In the case of Alba, the 26 has a much greater role for Years now. With nearly 28 minutes of average playing time Giedraitis is by the Berliners in the current Eurocup season, the longest on the parquet, and his 13 points per game behind the injured Peyton Siva, the best value in Alba.
For coach Aito Garcia Reneses and his Team is in the third of six between play much. After the home win against Monaco Alba lost a week ago at Partizan Belgrade. All four teams are in with a win and a defeat on a par. "This is an important game in a very tight group, which has so far seen only home victories," said Reneses. "To win away could be the key to qualify for the next round."More about
