21-05-2017 17:00 BST - Real Madrid v CSKA Moscow - Euroleague Playoffs Tips
The regular season record for Real Madrid stood at 23-7 and CSKA Moscow’s stood at 22-8, but for both teams, the only important record is the Final Four one and this stands at 0-1 for both of them. These are the teams that sat at the top of the regular season table but that counts for nothing when it comes to Euroleague glory, the loss in the Semi Final means that both of these teams will end their season on a low note.
You know that the players will be keen to finish third as opposed to fourth but coming hard on the heels of a Semi-Final loss, it is hard to know how committed the players will be. Some teams and players respond strongly to setbacks and we could see a flowing game between two determined teams. However, we could also face a flat game between two basketball sides who would rather be anywhere else than Turkey and Istanbul when the Championship Game is just a few hours away. This can make it difficult to predict what will happen in the Euroleague, but hopefully we’ll see a game that is fitting for the quality and calibre of players on display.

Can the Russians bounce back from Euroleague disappointment?
The bookmakers have the Russian side as the favourites for this game and it is easy to see why; the 2016 Euroleague champions are a team that usually rises to the occasion and they’ll regret letting a strong lead slip against their Greek rivals. You can back CSKA Moscow at -3, at odds of 1.90 for the third place match in the Euroleague on Sunday night.
Both of these teams like to play on the front foot, so when it comes to the Over/Under market, you should go OVER 175.0 which you can find at odds of 1.90. In the Race To 20 Points, you can back CSKA Moscow at odds of 1.68.
Anyone looking to back CSKA Moscow at half-time/full-time will find odds of 2.15 but if you think the Russians will start well before fading, like they did on Friday, you can back the CSKA Moscow half-time/Real Madrid full-time bet at odds of 7.50.
