Madrid can already think about the play-offs
Real Madrid is currently second in the EuroLeague, behind Olympiacos only in additional metrics. In the last meeting, the Spanish giant defeated Virtus Bologna with a score of 96:79. The team should be motivated by the fight for leadership, but first place in the season is not necessary, the most important thing is to perform well in the playoffs. Two players will leave the upcoming battle due to damage.
Fenerbahce have not yet been guaranteed a place in the play-offs
The Turkish giants started the season in the Euroleague very strongly, taking the lead, and then they sank so much that they could have been without the play-offs. Now the team is fifth in the championship, three wins to the ninth round, it is extremely difficult to lose such an advantage in four matches. As Real is an extremely inconvenient opponent, success in such a meeting has great psychological significance. Three basketball players will not be able to enter the field, they are injured.
In this confrontation with a spectacular poster, the bookmakers give the hosts an advantage. Real are strong on their court, Madrid needs a victory in the context of the fight for the first line. Fenerbahce have only won half of their away matches this season, but a win is desirable here as well. We treat a bet over 164.5 points as a working bet.
