All the while… the battle for a place in the top eight is intensifying Euroleague!
The action in the Devil’s Week continues unabated, with some very pivotal matches that can turn the tide in the battle for both qualification and home advantage!
The program of the day starts with a really terrible match in Kaunas. THE Zalgiris welcomes her Monaco (19:00, NovaSports 4), in a game between two teams with opposite but… equally serious goals.
The Lithuanians, with a 15-15 record, are on the fringes of the top eight and will definitely need pink sheets to take advantage of their formidable home ground and keep their qualification hopes intact. THE Monacoon the other hand, is at 20-10, has… cleaned up with the qualification, however he wants a positive result so that he can take a strong step for the home advantage and also stay in the hunt for the third place!
Wednesday’s menu continues with another interesting match on Serbian soil, between Red Star and the Valencia (20:00, NovaSports 5). The “red and whites” with a record of 13-17 have probably lost all hope for the eight, however they will fight to the end, as they proved with their victory over Baskonia in the previous matchday. Alex Moubro’s side, on the other hand, have a slightly better chance with 14-16 and 12th place, but they need… positive results here and now to keep any mathematical hopes of qualification alive.
The last match of the day is also the most… “starless”. THE Real Madrid hosts the Fenerbahce (21:45, NovaSports 4), in a match with a strong flavor… Final Four. Madrid are tied at the top Euroleague with Olympiakos (without having the tie), so they want the pink card waiting for some… “gift” from Piraeus so that they are left alone first. His team Dimitris Itoudisfor its part, is in trouble… for good in terms of home advantage (18-12 against 20-10 of fourth-placed Monaco), while also seeing the in-form Maccabi and Partizan come threateningly close (17-13).
