05/02/2015 18:00 – Galatasaray v Maccabi Tel Aviv
Just like last year, Galatasaray will be squaring up to Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Top 16. Given that last year was a championship winning year for the Israeli side, it is no surprise to see that Maccabi grabbed wins in both of the games. Whether this has any influence on your thinking about this game is up to you but if you need assistance with respect to Euroleague basketball betting, we can help you out. There will be a chance for the Turkish side to seek revenge in this game but one player who will be looking forward to this game is Aleks Maric.
The center joined the Turkish side from Maccabi before the Top 16 started. There is also the fact that Carlos Arrayo is another player that used to play for Maccabi so there are some players involved with Galatasaray that will be desperate to overcome the champions.
