CSKA Moscow – Panathinaikos

  • CSKA holds a 21-16 advantage in the EuroLeague against Panathinaikos.

These Turkish Airlines EuroLeague superpowers meet again. CSKA Moscow (7-5) and Panathinaikos OPAP Athens (3-9) combine for 14 continental crowns. CSKA has won its last two games after losing four of its previous five. Will Clyburn (16.0 ppg.) is its top scorer, followed by Toko Shengelia (15.1 ppg.) and Johannes Voigtmann (11.4 ppg.). Panathinaikos comes off a win that stopped a five-game losing streak. Daryl Macon Jr. (16.4 ppg.), Georgios Papagiannis (8.8 ppg., 7.9 rpg.) and Ioannis Papapetrou (12.1 ppg.) are its pillars this season. This is a rematch of the 2007 and 2009 EuroLeague championship games.

Fenerbahce – Monaco

  • This is the first official meeting between the two clubs.

Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul hosts AS Monaco on Thursday in a game between two teams coming off Round 12 heartbreakers and looking to end losing streaks. Fenerbahce (3-9) has lost four in a row, including an 84-89 decision at Anadolu Efes Istanbul last week after leading by as many as 12 in the fourth quarter. Marial Shayok scored a personal best 18 points in defeat. Monaco (5-7) has lost its last three games. On Friday, it was felled by French league foe LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne, 84-85, on a desperation three at the buzzer. Paris Lee scored a career-high 20 points in the losing effort. This game marks the first meeting between the sides.

Zalgiris – Baskonia

  • Baskonia has a 14-10 lead in EuroLeague games against Zalgiris.

Last-placed Zalgiris Kaunas will try to move up in the standings when it hosts Bitci Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz on Thursday evening. Zalgiris (2-10) had won back-to-back games – its first victories of the season – in Rounds 9 and 10 before getting spanked by 23 points in Barcelona last week. Tau Webster had his best game since joining Zalgiris with 13 points and 4 assists in the loss. Baskonia (4-8) has lost six of its last seven games, including a 60-88 drubbing at the hands of Real Madrid last week. Simone Fontecchio showed signs of breaking out of a slump with 14 points and 7 rebounds. The game is the only time this season that Baskonia’s two Lithuanian players, Rokas Giedraitis and Tadas Sedekerskis, will get to play in their homeland.

Bayern – Villeurbanne

  • The home team has won each of the four games between these two teams.

FC Bayern Munich will seek its third straight home win when it hosts feisty LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne on Thursday. Bayern (5-7) came up short 77-74 last week in Moscow despite 28 points from Darrun Hilliard, but has a winning record at home and knows how important turning Audi Dome into a fortress is for its playoff hopes. ASVEL (7-5) edged AS Monaco on a mid-court heave at the buzzer by William Howard in Round 12 to end a three-game losing streak. Coach TJ Parker’s squad is 3-2 on the road this season. This will be the fifth meeting between the sides; the home team has won the previous four by double digits each time.

Real Madrid – Maccabi

  • Real leads the all-time series 38-24 and holds an 18-11 advantage in games this century.

It is the most repeated showdown in European competition. Real Madrid (10-2) and Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv (7-5) face each other for the 63rd time. Real has a 38-24 record against Maccabi and beat the Israeli champion in the 1980 EuroLeague championship game. Maccabi avenged that loss in the 2014 final. Real is on a five-game winning streak. Walter Tavares (12.6 ppg., 7.1 rpg., 1.7 bpg.), Guerschon Yabusele (12.3 ppg., 4.4 rpg.) and Vincent Poirier (7.6 ppg., 6.4 rpg.) are leading the team this season. Scottie Wilbekin (14.8 ppg.), James Nunnally (13.4 ppg.) and Ante Zizic (12.8 ppg.) are Maccabi’s top scorers.
