Barcelona is having a good season so far
The Catalan club missed out on the chance to win the Spanish Cup this season, as the team played Unicaja in extra time in the quarter-final stage, which eventually won the tournament. In the championship, Barcelona shares the lead with Real Madrid, here everything will be decided in the play-off phase. Things are going well in the Euroleague, the Catalans are second in the regular season, losing only one win to the leader. In the last meeting, they managed to beat direct rivals Monaco at home by a score of 80:70, which was the fourth successive victory in the tournament. There are no casualties before this meeting.
Zalgiris needs wins
The fight of the first round turned out to be extremely fierce, Żalgiris managed to grab the victory on his court with the score 73:72.
The bookmakers are absolutely confident that the Catalan club will win, given both Barcelona’s good form and Zalgiris’ poor away performance. The hosts must control the flow of the game and win by a comfortable margin. A home success bet with a handicap of -9.5 points seems acceptable.
