 Panellinios and Aris will face Spanish opposition in the quarterfinals of the Eurocup without home advantage, as Tuesday's results meant they both finished second in their groups.

Panellinios will host Gran Canaria and Aris will entertain Valencia on March 24, with the return legs in Spain on March 31.

On Tuesday Panellinios defeated Bilbao (coached by Greek Fotis Katsikaris) 77-70 in Athens, but had needed a difference of 21 points to finish top of the group.

Aris lost 79-75 at Le Mans to end up second in their pool, although they had led the French side for a long time on the night.

 Olympiakos have maintained their perfect record in the second group stage of the Euroleague after their hard-fought away win at Cibona Zagreb (97-94) on Wednesday.


The Reds can advance from Thursday to the quarterfinals of the competition, with two games remaining, if Khimki defeat Caja Laboral.


A few days after winning their first trophy in eight years, Olympiakos played a tricky match at improved Cibona and could have easily lost the game on the strength of the two teams’ performance in the first half.


The Croats led by 10 (28-18) before Olympiakos rallied back into the game with the hosts leading 45-43 at half-time.


In the second half the Greeks enjoyed the lead for most of the time, advancing 66-58 at some point, but Cibona proved particularly hard to beat.


With the seconds ticking away the hosts led 93-92 until Linas Kleiza slammed the ball in the Cibona basket to regain the edge for Olympiakos and gift them their fourth victory in four games at the top-16 of the Euroleague.


On Thursday Panathinaikos host Barcelona and Maroussi visit Partizan Belgrade.


Glorious Tuesday

Both Greek teams scored significant wins in the Eurocup on Tuesday.


Aris defeated visiting Alba Berlin 80-67 with 18 points from Michalis Kakiouzis, while Panellinios returned from their visit to Benetton Treviso in Italy with an 85-81 victory.
