Bayern Munich vs Brose Bamberg
Competition: German BBL
Date: 20 May 2018
Time: 18:00 CET
Bayern Munich almost suffered a massive upset in the first round of the BBL playoffs, where they were up against Frankfurt. They comfortably won the first match by 85:72 at home, and there was nothing wrong with losing in Game 2 on the road by 75:69. However, they almost threw their entire season in the garbage when they lost by 83:86 at home in Game 3, as they found themselves with their backs against the wall. However, they reacted perfectly, as they went on to win both next matches, at home and on the road, as they reached the semi-finals. They are now up against a Brose Bamberg side, against whom they have been really good so far in the season, and will look to continue the streak.
On the other hand, Brose Bamberg had a much easier job in the previous round of the playoffs, where they swpet Bonne. They made a great start with a solid 87:74 win at home, and doubled their wins with a nice 82:90 on the road in Game 2. However, they didn’t have it easy in Game 3 at home, where they met quite the resistance. Even so, they managed to hold on to their slim lead throughout the whole match, as they comfortably made it to the semi-finals of the German BBL. After their failure in the Euroleague this season, Brose Bamberg have got to make it count against Bayern Munich, in order to have something to brag about.
