UNICS Kazan – Barcelona

  • Barcelona is 8-0 against UNICS.

UNICS Kazan takes on FC Barcelona on Thursday, less than a month after their overtime thriller. When Barcelona (16-4) fought back to force overtime, UNICS (11-7) was leading comfortably but couldn’t hold on for a win. Despite the postponement of three of its past four home games, UNICS has won seven of its last eight. Last week, Barcelona beat Anadolu Efes Istanbul in a repeat of the 2021 championship final after losing two games in a row. Nicolas Mirotic has been suspended by Barcelona after testing positive for COVID-19.

Zenit – Monaco

  • Monaco forward Will Thomas played the last two seasons with Zenit.

At Sibur Arena on Thursday, Zenit (12-6) takes on AS Monaco (9-11). Jordan Loyd (13.4 ppg, 3.7 apg), Mateusz Ponitka (4.8 ppg, 5.2 rpg), and Billy Baron are all contributing to Zenit’s recent success (10.8 ppg.). Monaco has won three of its previous four games, including a 75-100 victory over LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne this week. Mike James (15.2 ppg.), Dwayne Bacon (12.5 ppg.), and Donatas Motiejunas make up the Monaco offence (9.8 ppg.). Loyd led Zenit to a 74-85 victory over Monaco earlier this season.

Fenerbahce – Zalgiris

  • Fenerbahce is 16-9 against Zalgiris in games played this century.

To keep climbing the rankings, Fenerbahce will take on Zalgiris Kaunas on Thursday. It was a great start to 2022 for Fenerbahce, who beat Olympiacos Piraeus 94-80 last week, including a 17-point performance from their backup guard and team captain. Fenerbahce won for the first time since losing Nando De Colo and Jan Vesely to injury in their past six games. Zalgiris (3-14) has now lost four straight games, the most recent being a 74-65 defeat at the hands of FC Bayern Munich. This season, the Lithuanian champions have failed to win a single game on the road. Edgaras Ulanovas had a season-high 18 points in Zalgiris’ 86-75 win against Fenerbahce in November’s Round 11 clash.

ALBA Berlin – Real Madrid

  • Real holds an 11-0 record in EuroLeague play against ALBA since 2000.

When ALBA Berlin and Real Madrid square off on Thursday in Berlin, the two clubs will meet for the first time in the EuroLeague. After ALBA’s 8-point loss to Milan in a make-up game 48 hours earlier, the German champions continue their busy week. Real Madrid has won four straight games and has the best record in the league (15-3). Walter Tavares scored 17 points and grabbed seven rebounds in Los Blancos’ 87-64 win against ALBA in Round 15 last month. For the 11th time in a row, Real Madrid won against ALBA in the EuroLeague and the EuroCup.

Maccabi – Olympiacos

  • Olympiacos owns a 13-11 advantage in the all-time series against Maccabi Jerusalem, including three straight victories.

When Maccabi Tel Aviv hosts Olympiacos Piraeus on Thursday, the Israeli champions will be hoping to stop their eight-game losing run. The final three games of Maccabi (7-11) have been postponed because of COVID-19 breakouts in both the home and away teams. The squad has lost most of its games away from home this season, going 5-3 at home. After losing to Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul last week, Olympiacos (12-6) is now tied for third place. This season, the Reds are a disappointing 3-6 away from home. Due to Tyler Dorsey and Quincy Acy currently playing for Olympiacos, the game will be extra-interesting for Maccabi fans as well. In his four years as Olympiacos head coach, Ioannis Sfairopoulos twice took the team to the championship game.
