Greece: Panathinaikos joins Olimpiacos in final!

Despite the upsets of Game 1, eventually everything goes as expected in the Greek championship, the only one resumed after suspension due Coronavirus pandemic: the final will be between Olympiacos (that yesterday won vs. Foinikas) and Panathinaikos (without Starovic) that today, in the decisive challenge, clearly beats in straight sets Paok, as known without foreigners and without Sotiriou, injured. The winners dominates in attack (56% winning and 41% efficiency against 36% of winning and 16% of efficiency) and with the block (9-3), while does not shine from the service line (1 ace against 3 and only 8 errors per side ). Boutos, top scorer of the march, tries to keep alive his team with 18 points, but he was enough. Raptis scored 16 points and 55% in attack for the finalists.
