With the following match ups to come tonight, there is still plenty of fire in the second game day of the Euroleague Top 16. Tonight’s games will bring us Maccabi at Zalgiris, Unicaja Malaga at Lottomatica Roma and Olympiakos at Madrid.
Each game has its own story that makes the games really interesting and especially important for some teams. Will Maccabi have a chance without the injured Fizer and Vujcic? What will happen in Madrid with Olympiakos? Can Lottomatica win at home against another “Final Four” team?
If you follow tonights’ games anyway, you might want to come back to BallinEurope around 20.30 to check out our LIVE Blog from the “Palalottomatica” where we will cover the game of Unicaja Malaga against Roma.
Lottomatica Roma center Erazem Lorbek explains, why this game is important for Roma: “This game is very important because it is our first Top 16 game at home and we want to do well. It is important to win. We will be facing a strong team but then again, as all Top 16 teams are. We have to seek for game control during the 40 minutes. We will have to play good defense to be able to stop their strengths.”
To make this game day more exciting for myself, I ll post my predictions: Zalgiris wins by 12, Madrid wins by 15 and Roma will win against Unicaja by 4.
