Olympiacos 92-58 Barça: To be decided at the Palau

The blaugranes lose game four of the series and a fifth game at home will decide the Final Four spot

Nothing decided yet, as Barça lost the fourth EuroLeague play-off against Olympiacos (92-58), with the winner of fifth and final game of the series at home in the Palau Blaugrana going through to the Final Four in Berlin.

Roger Grimau's side started well in the first quarter, but the Greeks took control from the second. As such, the game at the blaugrana home on May 8will determine who will be among in the four best teams in Europe this season.

Good first quarter for the blaugranes

With the backdrop of a Peace and Friendship Stadium full of Greek fans making a lot of noise, the fourth game in the series between Olympiacos and FC Barcelona started lively. Moustapha Fall was scoring for the hosts, while teamwork was on the menu for the blaugranes, who ended +2 at the end of the first quarter (21-23).

Olympiacos dominate the second

Total change in the second, the blaugrana attack proving less effective and Olympiacos scoring 15-0 to take the first big lead of the game. The Greeks remained very effective with their scoring and a very tough quarter for the visitors saw the home side +16 up at half-time (53-37).

No change after the break

Same script after the restart, the lead hardly changing despite the blaugranes scoring 0-8 at one point. Olympiacos again regained control and went on to extend their lead by the end of the third quarter (72-47). The final quarter was somewhat testimonial, with the home side enforcing their effective play, ultimately running out 92-58 winners. All to be decided at the Palau Blaugrana on May 8.
