02/01/2015 18:00 – Crvena Zvezda v Real Madrid
We may have had two games in the Top 16 just before the turn of the year but this is the day when the Top 16 really kicks into life. There are six games being played today and there is an absolute cracker in store in Group E. Crvena Zvezda welcome Real Madrid and there will be genuine hopes of an upset against a Spanish side that slightly stuttered towards the end of the group stage in the Euroleague.
This is the first meeting between the two teams since 2006/07, a season they played four times in the ULEB Cup. Madrid clinched victory in three of these games, including both games of the two-legged quarter final and Real went on to win that trophy.

Felipe Reyes was also in good form, averaging 10.1 points per game while also delivering an average of 5.9 rebounds per game. There could be some unwanted history for Felipe Reyes very shortly in the Euroleague as he is just 8 fouls away from taking the record of the most fouls committed in Euroleague history.
Madrid are slightly trailing in their domestic league, sitting in fifth place, but this is with a 10-4 record. The most recent domestic outing for Madrid resulted in a loss, Unicaja downing Real 99-92 after OT.
Even if home hopes are high, Madrid should have more than enough about them to take control of this game.

If you are looking to take the Over/Under market, you will find that going Under 159.5 is a decent bet. Bet Now!
