Leading by eight after the first leg success in Denmark, Siroki went in front by as many as eight on Tuesday in the first half before going to the changing rooms with a 49-44 advantage.

They weren't able to pull away from the Rabbits, though, and twice  the visitors went in front by two in the fourth quarter only for Siroki to eventually prevail and seal their progression.

Siroki finished 10 of 31 from long range.

The Danish out hurt their own cause with 20 turnovers, compared to just 14 for the home side.
