Barça will visit Maccabi Playtika this Thursday at 8:05 p.m., live on DAZN and Movistar +, on the seventh day of the Euroleague. Tel Aviv will be the fourth game in six days for Saras, three of them in a row away from home.
Maccabi Playtika won their third consecutive victory in continental competition on Tuesday, thanks to the victory against Zalgiris Kaunas (76-62). Ioannis Sfairopoulos’s men are sixth in the standings with 4 wins and 2 losses after overcoming a tough start.
Maccabi’s main threats are Scottie Wilbekin (14.7 points and 4.2 assists on average), James Nunnally (14.3 points and 2.5 assists) and Derrick Williams (10.7 points). You have to take into account other players like Ante Zizic, Jalen Reynolds, Mathias Lessort or Keenan Evans.
The Barça team will finish off a series of three straight away games in Tel Aviv, with Malaga as the first stop and Istanbul as a continuation. The team is the solo leader of the Euroleague, with six victories in six rounds.
Those of Jasikevicius, with reinforced morale after beating Fenerbahce Beko in the last tenth (74-76), do not know defeat in either the Euroleague or the Endesa League after 13 games played.
