Friborg Olympic will not play in the Champions League this season. Coach Petar Aleksic’s men were beaten 93-70 by Niners Chenitz on Friday in the semi-finals of the Skopje qualifying tournament. They will therefore be content with the Europe Cup.
Deprived of his main Swiss reinforcement of the summer Jonathan Kazadi (muscle tear in a thigh), the quadruple reigning Swiss champion dropped the price in the second half against the German team. Chemnitz, who led by five points (48-43) at the break, won the third quarter 30-13 to take off.
However, the European adventure is not over for Olympic, which will therefore be reversed in the Europe Cup. The Fribourgeois will appear in group C with the Estonians of Pärnu Sadam, FC Porto and a team yet to be determined. Day 1 is scheduled for October 12.
