Despite weak first quarter: Bavaria wins in Spain
FC Bayern Munich has underpinned its playoff ambitions in the Euro league. At 84:77 (42:33) success at Gastonia Vitoria-Gasteiz, the Bundesliga leader on Friday evening drove the ninth victory in the 20th game and thus held the Spanish club in chess, as the direct comparison for the Munich speaks. The first leg had won Vitoria-Gasteiz with 81:76 in the Audi Dome.
Bayern began the return match faulty (10: 2/4.) And only started in the course of the first quarter. But then they took the momentum. A 17: 0 race brought them in front of 36:24. At this stage, the households remained without their own basket for four minutes. After the side change, Bavaria had some problems in the defensive. Especially the former Munich Wade Baldwin set accents (71: 73/37.).
In the final phase, there was a lack of good throwing opportunities in the guests who could once again be able to rebuild the lead. Decisive were also the appearances of Othello Hunter and Corey Walden, each achieving 17 points.
