PAN vs ZAL Dream11: Having beaten Bayern Munich in the last round in a high-profile game in EuroLeague, Panathinaikos will be looking to build on that good result when they play host to Zalgiris Kaunas in EuroLeague round-20 match at O.A.C.A. Olympic Indoor Hall, in Athens, on Friday night (IST).
Zalgiris Kaunas, meanwhile, may be outside the playoffs at the moment but they are in a better form than what their lowly 15th position may indicate. The visitors arrive in this game with four wins in the last five games.
This will be the 24th meeting between these two teams in EuroLeague since 2000. Panathinaikos lead the head-to-head record with 17 wins, including the two in the last two games.
