After learning that it will not be able to guarantee its place in the Euroleague playoffs this evening (Thursday), due to Zalgiris Kovna's victory over Monaco, Maccabi Tel Aviv will nevertheless try to take another big step towards the quarterfinals with a home game against Milan at this time in Yed Eliyahu .
The yellows came to the game after a streak of five victories and with a balance of 18 wins against 13 losses, which places them in sixth place.
The opponent, who was the undisputed disappointment of the season at the start of the season, has recovered in recent months and is ranked 11th in the table, with 17:14 and very little chance of reaching the next stage.
As mentioned, the guarantee of the quarter-finals will not be made tonight, but it can be perfected at the end of the 32nd round in the Euroleague.
This will happen in the scenario of a home victory over Ettore Messina and his players, along with a loss of Baskonia (host Fenerbahce), Zalgiris (Valencia) or Partizan Belgrade (at home against Real Madrid).
Probably one more win will be enough.
