Unics Kazan – Gran Canaria
Banvit – Khimki

The first leg was held in Gran Canaria, and it took the Russians just over 15 minutes to prove they were on a different level. In the second half, the islanders sank and El Khimki won in a very convincing way (66-91), leaving the final practically sentenced. With +25 the Russians took it easy in the second match of the final, waiting for the minutes to pass and their opponent to lose faith. There was not much emotion as at half-time Khimki already won by 15, and in the end won by (83-64). The truth is that after two games there was only one rival on the track, and this was the Khimki.
