Olimpia Milano-Derthona, the match schedule

Good evening friends and friends of OA Sport and welcome to the LIVE LIVE text of AX Armani Exchange Olimpia Milano-Bertram Yachts Derthona, final of the Italian Basketball Cup. The last act of the Frecciarossa Final Eight 2022 is staged at the Vitrifrigo Arena in Pesaro.

The Olimpia Milano of coach Ettore Messina reaches this final with the underdogs. The Milanese team wants to raise the first trophy of the season after the defeat in the Super Cup final at the hands of Virtus Bologna in September. The AX Armani Exchange reached the final overcoming Dinamo Sassari in the quarter-finals (88-68) and Brescia in the semifinals in a hard-fought Lombard derby. 69-63 the final score with 22 points from Sergio Rodriguez and 12 from Luigi Datome and Devon Hall .

Coach Marco Ramondino’s Bertram Derthona is probably the biggest surprise of these Final Eights, but more generally of the season . The newly promoted (who until eight years ago was still in the third series) made it to this historic final by overcoming Trieste in the quarter-finals and the reigning Italian champions of Virtus Bologna in the semifinals, with the same score, 94-82. It had been 17 years since a freshman had not reached the final act of the Italian Cup, the last one to succeed was the Bipop Carire Reggio Emilia in 2005 against Benetton Treviso, then coached by Ettore Messina.

Between Olimpia Milano and Derthona there is only one precedent in official matches, namely that of last January 9, a match valid for the fifteenth first leg of the current Serie A championship. To prevail was the Armani comeback with the score of 72-60 (with Tortona who had closed the first quarter at the Mediolanum Forum on 19-4). The two teams will then face off again immediately after today’s championship final, on March 6, in a match that will therefore act as a rematch.

OA Sport offers you the text LIVE LIVE of Olimpia Milano-Derthona, final of the 2022 Italian Cup. Two-man ball scheduled for 6.00 pm at the Vitrifrigo Arena in Pesaro. Have fun with our live news with pre-match starting at 17.30.
