We start the analysis of Round 8 games with the match at the Volkswagen Arena of Istanbul: Darussafaka vs Unicaja Malaga.
EUROLEAGUE TOP 16
Group E – Round 8
Thursday, February 25, 2016
Istanbul, Turkey – 18:30 cet
🏀 Darussafaka (1-6): this Turkish club has a strong relationship with Euroleague, so strong they are set to play in Euroleague 2016/2017. In our opinion this season they have no chance to qualify for the playoffs, but anyway, they can win some matches in this Top 16. This one, for example.
📚 STARTING 5: Wilbeking, Redding, Erden, Gordon, Bjelica. COACH: Okay Mamhuti.
🏀 Unicaja Malaga (2-5): already played at the Volkswagen Arena this season and they lost 63-57. It was last December in a regular season match. On Thursday Malaga will be without the guard Jamar Smith, injured. In Liga ACB Malaga is in 8th position, so Joan Plaza boys should care about their national league as they want to get a spot in the spanish playoff. Malaga adventure in Euroleague is almost over in our opinion.
📚 STARTING 5: Diaz, Thomas, Vazquez, Kuzminkas, Nelson. COACH Joan Plaza.
