The Peace and Friendship stadium in Piraeus is set to host the basketball derby between Greek champions Olympiacos and cup-holders Panathinaikos at 7pm.

Although both teams have suffered losses in their European campaigns, the two teams are expected to give it their all tonight, as the home advantage in the play offs is at stake.

The “Reds” – who will not have Matt Lojeski and Kostas Papanikolaou in their roster tonight – want revenge for the defeat in the first round (73-69), while the “Greens” want to maintain their perfect streak in the championship and defend the 4-point lead from the first match, which may determine the top position in the regular season, should the two teams tie.

This will be the 121st clash of the two since the basketball championship on Greece became professional in 1992, with tonight’s hosts Olympiacos having 55 wins, compared to Panathinaikos with 65
