29/01/2015 19:05 – Maccabi Tel Aviv v Real Madrid
These were the two teams involved in the Euroleague Final Four Championship game of 2014, and you can bet that both teams will have that in the back of their mind heading into this game. Maccabi will be keen to lay down a marker to head back to the final this year and these are the games that could decide who comes out on top in the group. As for Real Madrid, they will be keen to obtain revenge for their loss in the final and grabbing a win in Israel would be an excellent way to do so. Both of these teams have had wobbles at various points in the 2014/15 Euroleague campaign but when they are at the top of their game, they are two fantastic basketball sides. This means that the game on Thursday the 29th of January could be an absolute cracker.
