Anadolu Efes – Barcelona

After crushing Virtus on Friday to get back to winning ways in spectacular fashion, Efes (8-13) will attempt to carry on their comeback with a challenging trip against second-place Barcelona (15-6). With 24 points, Dario Brizuela made sure that the absence of the injured Nico Laprovittola was felt as Barca defeated Zalgiris on Friday. With 26 points to lead Virtus, Darius Thompson orchestrated the victory, so Efes will be hoping he continues hot. With Willy Hernangomez scoring 18 points in their 91-74 victory on opening night, Barca is aiming for a season sweep over Efes. Tyrique Jones will pose a threat to Hernangomez on Thursday.

crvena zvezda – Baskonia

Coach Dusko Ivanovic of Baskonia (11-10) will make a quick trip back to Belgrade to take on former squad Zvezda (9-12) as the Spanish team attempts to hold onto its spot in the crucial top 10. Last month, the teams faced off in a thrilling game that Baskonia won 87-85 thanks to a combined 17 boards from rebounding aces Tadas Sedekerskis and Chima Moneke. Joel Bolomboy, a big man for Zvezda who combined for 14 points and 6 rebounds in the team’s pivotal victory against Milan last week, will be their opponent. Rokas Giedraitis, a former shooter for Baskonia, scored 22 points in that game as well. He has now made multiple triples in four straight games.

Winning Margin 3-way 1-5 points at 2.70

Alba Berlin – Bayern Munich

ALBA (4-17) will host Bayern (8-13), who has lost all four of its games in 2024, in a German rivalry that will give ALBA the chance to win consecutive games for the first time this season. With Yanni Wetzell scoring 13 points and grabbing 8 rebounds to lead ALBA over ASVEL on Friday, the team is seeking retribution for Bayern’s easy 80-68 home win in the first round, which was powered by 17 points from Sylvain Francisco and an 11-point and 10-rebound double-double from Isaac Bonga. Bonga will be hoping for a return to form as he has only averaged 4.3 points per game over the past six outings.

Olympiacos – Maccabi

In a pivotal match for playoff qualification against the erratic Maccabi (12-9) team, Olympiacos (11-10) will be aiming for home comforts after suffering two losses away from home in the most recent double-round week. The Reds, who have a significant head-to-head advantage, will draw encouragement from their 74-79 away victory over Maccabi in November, which was aided by Thomas Walkup’s versatile game-high 13 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists. Lorenzo Brown was limited to just two field goals on 13 attempts by Walkup’s defence in that game, so Maccabi’s leading backcourt player will be hoping to recover after enduring a similarly trying night in Friday’s loss to Partizan.

Virtus Bologna – ASVEL Villeurbanne

A matchup between two teams looking to recover quickly from disappointing defeats pits Virtus (14-7) against ASVEL (4-17). The Italian squad, spearheaded by 20 points from Isaia Cordinier with only one miss, has won nine straight games at home. They also won a thrilling Round 5 match at ASVEL, 84-87. While ASVEL expects for a significant improvement in long-range shooting after only making two triples in last week’s crushing home defeat to ALBA, he and veteran Daniel Hackett will try to give better control to an offence that made eighteen turnovers in Friday’s 24-point loss at Efes.
