BAY vs PAN Dream11: Bayern Munich host Greek giants Panathinaikos in EuroLeague round-10 matchup at Rudi-Sedlmayer-Halle, in Munich Germany, with both the teams look to add to their wins in the last game.
Even the win in the last game can’t hide the fact that Bayern are enduring through a very difficult season. Prior to the 85-82 win over Olympiacos, the German outfit had a three-game losing run in Europe. No wonder, even at this early in the season, they already find themselves four games adrift of the top spot, currently occupied by Anadolu Efes, who shocked Olimpia Milano 76-81 in front of its own fans. That said, Bayern are absolutely flying in the seventh-heaven in the domestic league, after opening the Basketball Bundesliga 2019-20 season with seven straight wins.
Panathinaikos have a positive return from the season so far, as they sit 8th in EuroLeague with a 5-4 record on the season. They also come off a win in this game, following a close 85-86 win away against Zalgiris Kaunas. It would have been tough on the Greek champions had they lost this game, after losing by one point at home to alba Berlin in the round-9 match.
This will only be the fifth encounter between these two teams in EuroLeague. The record is tied at 2-2. Both the teams split up the last season’s series, with each team winning at home.
