After a defensive minded second quarter, Olympiacos increased their led by one to go into half-time ahead 6:2.

Olympiacos put the game away with two quick goals in the third quarter to grab a six goal lead, 8;2 and the period finished with the hosts comfortably in charge 9:3. The final quarter simply confirmed Olympiacos’ win, 11:5, as the six-time defending champions took a 2:1 lead in the best of five series.
