Maccabi is very strong at home
Just over two weeks ago, Maccabi missed their chance to win the trophy by losing the Israel Cup, although things are generally going well in the domestic arena, with the team taking first place in the regular season. Difficult situation in the Euroleague, the club is ninth, Efes eighth has the same number of wins, but has played one match less. Chances of promotion to the play-offs are there, but it’s all in the hands of the team. In the last meeting, Maccabi lost away to Monaco with the result of 67:86, the last quarter was terrible, losing 8:28. Two players will miss this match due to injury.
Fenerbahce can get close to the leader
The arena factor in the confrontations of these teams is of great importance, the hosts win more often, although there are exceptions. In the clash of the first round, Fenerbahce won on their court with the score 86:71.
An interesting and unpredictable fight awaits us, generally Fenerbahce are a bit stronger, but Maccabi are very strong at home, this factor should not be underestimated. The teams have more or less an equal chance of success, so it will be really hard to predict the winner. In such a match, the fight can go on until the last seconds, so we suggest betting on the sum above 164.5 points.
