Fenerbahce still has a margin of safety
The Turkish club is fifth in the EuroLeague regular season with one match to play, the loss to the ninth matchday is two wins. In the last game, Fenerbahce made a strong start away to Maccabi Tel Aviv, but eventually lost on the road with a score of 74:78, ending their three-game winning streak in the tournament. In the domestic arena, everything is fine, because the club is leading in the regular season. One hit in the Euroleague play-offs is obviously not enough, such teams are obliged to fight for victory in the tournament.
The Catalans remain at the forefront
Barcelona are currently second in the regular season but could finish third if Real win their reserve match. In the last meeting, the Catalans lost the duel of leaders with Olympiacos away 70:77. In general, the team is also in good shape and is able to fight for victory in the tournament. The team has to try very hard not to get to the playoffs, you can even fight for the first line, because the loss to the leader is only one victory.
It will be a clash of European titans, so the lack of a favorite in this pairing seems quite logical. The meeting will certainly be tense, perhaps in the first place will be the result, not a spectacular confrontation. A total bet under 163.5 points seems to work here.
