Watch Union Olimpija v AJ Milano live at SportingBet>livestreaming>basketball from 2045 CET on Thursday.
Two of Group D’s most pleasant surprises clash in an important contest on Thursday at Stozice Arena in Ljublaja, where Union Olimpija hosts Armani Jeans Milano.
Olimpija, who are undefeated at home this season, shares the Group D lead with Panathinaikos and Efes Pilsen with 4-2 records.
Milano, who are 2-1 on the road, trails that trio by just one win.
Olimpija comes off a tough loss at Efes Pilsen despite another solid all-around performance. Milano beat CSKA Moscow last week for their first home win, sweeping the season series from the Russian champs.
When these teams met in October, Goran Jagodnik and Saso Ozbolt scored 19 points apiece to lead Olimpija to a 72-76 road win.
Armani Jeans head coach Piro Bucchi remains without injured forward Oleksiy Pecherov and centre Marius Petravicius is still not 100%, but the team continues to play at a high level. Winning at Stozice Arena represents another tough test.
Olimpija has a versatile frontline, starting with Kevinn Pinkney and Damir Markota at center and power forward, but able to go big with Giorgi Shermadini off the bench.
Sportingbet October MVP Jagodnik also provides experience and offence from a reserve role. Milano uses Petravicius and Mancinelli in the starting five, while veterans Mason Rocca and Tomas Van den Spigel and rookie Nicolo Melli play varying reserve roles from week to week.
Buckle up and enjoy the ride as Olimpija and Armani battle for a pivotal Euroleague win.
