My bookmaker still doesn’t publish any bets for NBA games, so I look at Euroleague matchday 6 scheduled for this week.
Regular season – matchday 6
Thursday, November 15, 2012 – 20:45 CET
(CET: central europe time)
ALBA BERLIN vs MONTEPASCHI SIENA
Alba Berlin (2-3) started the Euroleague season winning 2 games (one in Siena in the 1st matchday), then the Sasa Obradovic’s band lost 3 in a row. Anyway Alba can still get a place in Top 16 as the best 4 of any group are promoted to the 2nd phase. Having won in Siena to open the season, a win Thursday would not only give Alba third place with four games left, but advantages in any future tie between them.
Montepaschi Siena (2-3) lost the first 3 games, than won against Chalon and Asseco, the two worst team of the group. As you are not used to follow European basket, there is something I have to explain to you. This italian club is suffering because of the financial problems of the main sponsor, the bank Monte dei Paschi di Siena. Few months ago the Italian government saved the bank, of course using money of Italian taxpayer. I am Italian, I live in Italy and I am an Italian taxpayer, so I am rage hard against our Prime Minister Mario Monti, who spend my money, not for useful things for the people, but to support this bank!. An Alba Berlin win on Thursday night would make me happy. I will be happy also netx April when, finally this stupid Italian government will go home.
By the way, the match is broadcasted live by TV sat channel Sportitalia 1.
