Olympiakos women water polo team closer to Final Four

The women's water polo team of Olympiakos is very close to the dream ranking in Final Four of the Champions Cup. During its visit in Barcelona the team won against Sabadell with 14:13 and significantly increased its chances to get a ticket for the Quartet of the best in Europe. The final entry of a white-red in the Quartet will depend on the return game, which the two teams will play in Piraeus on February 20. On the Olympiakos website the coach of the white-reds explains that during the game the team was leading at all times and the result could have been with greater difference but the decisions of the judges are guilty for the outcome.

The hosting team has played two times less exclusions than the visiting Greek team. "We must keep in mind that this is only one victory during the first half," commented his team's victory Harris Pavlidis. For the next meeting, which will be held local grounds in Piraeus, Pavlidis hopes that his players will show an even stronger game and will defeat the Sabadell team with greater difference.

Olympiakos, which after 11 years managed to rise to the top in Greece, is currently among the eight best women's water polo teams in Europe. The next goal of the team is to rank in the Quartet of Europe, but in order to do that it must dismiss the Spanish team February 20. This victory will be a stepping stone for the team - it will automatically qualify the winner to the next round of the championship. The fight will definitely not be easy. Both opponents have equal chances to win and any predictions of victory can hardly be made...

Success, though at a lower level, scored the male water polo team of the white-reds. It defeated Poseidon team with 11:1 and marked its first victory of the season in the 11th round of A1 for men.
