Defending champion Alba Berlin has made a clear statement in the German BBL. Bayern had no chance. The third quarter-final game in the Euroleague awaits on Wednesday.
With a debacle in the Bundesliga, the basketball players of FC Bayern Munich go into the third Euroleague playoff game against Olimpia Milan on Wednesday. The hoped-for self-confidence after the two defeats in Italy did not exist on Sunday. Alba Berlin cleared Bayern in Munich with 100 – 62 (52:30) and caused great worry lines on the Isar.
Alba completely dominated the match from the start of the second quarter. Led by center Ben Lammers, who scored eleven points before the break, the Berliners gradually expanded their lead. The tired Munich residents had nothing to oppose. A successful three-point throw by Johannes Thiemann made the 22-point deficit perfect after 20 minutes.
A visibly served Bayern coach Andrea Trinchieri only briefly went into the dressing room and came back almost immediately. After the weak performance, he quickly left the team alone again. The attempt to wake up his players with it did not work. The guests of coach Aito Garcia Reneses extended the lead to 83:46 after 30 minutes.
In the end, there was the highest league victory over Munich with 100: 62. Nevertheless, the Alba Berlin coach still had something to criticize. “It wasn’t our best game,” said the Spaniard. With 24: 6 wins, the capital club
consolidated second place in the table. Bayern (23: 8) remains third.
