Panathinaikos and Barça face in the twenty-seventh round of the Euroleague, where the Blaugranas need to react after falling into the Palau Blaugrana 69-76 against ASVEL Villeurbanne.
Although the team of Sarunas Jasikevicius remains leader of the classification, with a record of 18 wins by 7 losses, the margin is very narrow. The CSKA Moscow, second classified with 17 games won by 8 lost, is an encounter away, while the Olympia of Milan, third, he has one more defeat, with a balance of 17-9. This equality means that linking two wins or two consecutive losses can make the team in question go up important positions in the ranking, but also lower them. Facing the Euroleague playoffs, it is important to maintain the best possible position to have a more accessible crossing and with a field factor in favor.
This weekend, the Barça surpassed the Joventut from
Badalona in the Catalan derby of the Endesa League. The culé squad did not give the green-black team an option, which they beat 62-80. The most outstanding player was Nikola
Mirotic with 21 points, which little by little recovers his best level after the break he had due to personal problems.
The Panathinaikos, for its part, is far from that powerful and historic team that became European champion at the hand of Diamantidis, who is currently in the sports management of the Greek club.
The Hellenic team occupies the fifteenth place in the standings with a record of 9 wins and 15 losses, so you need to add victories to get away from the last places in the classification. In their last game, they lost on the court of Alba Berlin by 74-65.
In the first round, the Barça was imposed in the Palau Blaugrana 97-89 in a highly contested match that was resolved in extra time. Despite not being able to count on Mirotic in that meeting, Cory Higgins and Brandon Davies they threw the team on the back, with 24 and 20 points, respectivelyNick Calathes and Kyle Kuric They seconded them with 14 points each.
