Close, but done: 75:73 – FC Bayern wins in the 5th game at Zalgiris Kaunas for the first time in the EuroLeague. The Munich had to wait until the last quarter for the lead. Outstanding on his comeback: Vladimir Lucic, with 33 minutes of playing time and 17 points, showed how indispensable he is for FCB. “In terms of fitness, I’m not in my old shape. I tried to help the team,” said Lucic, who was promptly named MVP. Andrea Trinchieri sums up: “We were better on defense, we were better on rebounds. Not yet perfect. But we are a completely new team.” Corey Walden said what applies to all of FC Bayern after four defeats at the beginning: “That was definitely ballast on our shoulders. We needed this victory.”

Below are the voices of FC Bayern in Kaunas at MagentaSport. ALBA Berlin is hoping for the 2nd victory in the EuroLeague at Roter Stern from 6.45pm on Friday.

Right away MVP, Vladimir Lucic, when asked how Bayern turned the game in the second half: “We were much more physical to secure the 50:50 balls. We also got more offensive rebounds. But in the end we had to fight like we did in the first 4 games. We were so rewarded with the win, about that I am very happy. “

Lucic says about his comeback: “I’ve had some protracted problems. I’m not in my old shape yet. I’ve tried to help the team. I know the system and a lot of players, so I was there for my team-mates.”

Coach Andrea Trinchieri on victory: “We were better on defense, we were better on rebounds. Not perfect yet. But we are a completely new team. The first half was bad. With our backs to the wall, we woke up . We made important plays. I think we deserved to win. “

With Lucic’s return, Trinchieri has more options in the squad again: “That was a stressful time because everyone had to take on a different role that we had previously given them in the formation of the squad. Now that Lucic is back, it was almost a shock in the first half. When a player like that comes back, then the others act a little slower. It was good that we still had 20 minutes to find the right balance. “

FCB point guard Corey Walden after the first win and the pressure of having to win: “That was definitely ballast on our shoulders. We needed this win. We’ll take it with us now and see that it gets better in the future.”
