Maccabi Tel Aviv Team News
Maccabi has been playing in excellent form lately, and the best indicator is four consecutive victories in the Euroleague. Before this match, their win-loss ratio was 17-13, and they shared the sixth position with Partizan.
In the last round, they defeated Lyon in France 85:65. The guard tandem Lorenzo Brown – Wade Baldwin was once again unstoppable. Together they scored 41 points, and we should mention the tremendous defense, especially in the second half. They allowed the opponent to score 24 points in 20 minutes, which is respectable fact.
Maccabi has won the most games at home arena in the Euroleague this season. In 14 games, they registered 12 victories. They also recorded three consecutive victories and entered the game with Virtus with confidence.

Virtus Bologna Team News
Virtus still hope to reach the Top 8, but their chances are almost theoretical. Their current record is 13-17, and they must win every game until the end. In addition, they will have to hope for favorable results of other mathces, so Virtus will most likely fail to qualify at the knockout phase.
The quality of their games has been at a low level lately. They lost four of their last five matches, and in that period, they only beat Alba, while they lost against Fenerbahce, Partizan, Monaco, and Real Madrid.
The last defeat, against Real, was particularly convincing. Sergio Scariola’s team lost in front of the home fans with a score of 79:96, and in that match, they showed defensive weaknesses. Real easily found solutions in the offense, and the Virtus players will be in big trouble in Tel Aviv if they don’t raise the level of defensive aggressiveness.
