Maccabi Tel Aviv
Maccabi has had several ups and downs this season, but is still in competition for a place among the top eight teams in the competition. They are in seventh place on the table with the effect of twelve victories and eleven defeats, and the great advantage of the Israeli team is the fact that Maccabi has played two matches less than most competitors in the fight for the playoffs. Two days ago, they achieved a very valuable victory against the Milan team with 75:58, but we must say that this victory was convincing because the visiting team shot catastrophically badly from a distance.
Nunnally, Reynolds and Zizic stood out in that match, and knowing that each of them has certain and visible limits, it is difficult to expect that they can play two quality matches in a short period. Much will depend on what mood Wilbekin will be in, because without his performance Maccabi has no chance of triumphing in this match.

Real has been at the very top of European basketball for years, and this is the first season that the Madrid team is going through a turbulent period. In the last two months, Real has played fifteen matches in all competitions, and even nine defeats in those matches show enough what problems Real Madrid is in. It was also mentioned that Pablo Lasso will leave Madrid, but the Spanish coach kept his place thanks to the victories against Milan and Lyon-Villeurbanne. Two days ago, Real was defeated by Anadolu Efes with the result of 93:90, and that defeat is especially difficult because the team from Madrid had a double-digit advantage during the third quarter.
Lasso’s strange decision was for Randolph to spend just four minutes on the field, while Thompkins was only nine seconds into the game. Also, Tavares played very badly against Anadolu Efes, and we believe that in tonight’s match he will “redeem” for that bad game, considering that he will play against Zizic, who is not known as a player with good defensive characteristics.

Maccabi Tel Aviv vs. Real Madrid Prediction
Maccabi profited a lot from the fact that the Euroleague suspended the teams from Russia, so due to a combination of really happy circumstances, they found themselves in a position to secure participation in the playoffs. However, this season they are a very unpredictable team that can lose a match when it is least expected, and a convincing victory in the last round can deceive betting fans, because Maccabi was not great – Milano played terribly. In our opinion, Real Madrid is the main favorite to win the Euroleague, because it has the most compact team this season, and when Taylor, Abalde, and Causer return to the roster, we can expect much better results from the Madrid team.
They were better than Efes during almost the entire match and they were defeated thanks to the great game of Larkin and Micic, and since Maccabi does not have such players in their team, we believe that tonight they will not allow themselves to repeat the same mistake. Real Madrid is a better team, and we expect them to triumph in tonight’s match without any major problems.
