Madrid continues to depend on itself for the defeat of Zenit

Real is ahead of Zenit (17-14) in a victory (18-14), which has a pending match. But Madrid would pass in the event of a triple draw with the Russians and Valencia or Baskonia.


The defeat of Real Madrid on Tuesday against Anadolu Efes complicates life for Laso's men, although it could have been worse. Madrid reaches the final stretch with a balance of 18-14 and very aware of what their rivals do, since in the rear view they see Baskonia (18-14 after beating Panathinaikos), Zenit (17-14 after their defeat against CSKA, but with one game less) and Valencia Basket (17-14). CSKA's triumph against Zenit has been good for Laso's team since his team would be favored in a triple draw with the Russians and Baskonia or Valencia.

In the case of multiple draws, Real Madrid has won the average against Zenit Saint Petersburg (+ 7 / + 4) and has lost it with Baskonia (-13 / -20) and Valencia Basket (-16 / -11 ). His double victory against the Russians could be his entry key to the playoffs, since with two wins he would reach 20 victories and he would get in the event of a triple draw with Baskonia and Zenit or Valencia and Zenit. Valencia and Baskonia could not tie at 20 wins with the whites, because they face each other on the last day and Zenit is the one that has achieved the fewest victories (1-3) in direct confrontations between these teams.

That is the first indicator to resolve multiple ties (the balance between the teams involved). If the equality remains, the average between the tied teams will be used and if it persists, the general average in the regular season. If it is still not resolved, the one with the highest score this season will finish higher.Madrid, against Olympiacos and Fenerbahçe

Madrid have two games left. On Friday he receives an Olympiacos without options (21:00, Dazn) and will close the regular phase in Istanbul next Thursday, April 8 (19:45, Dazn) against Fenerbahçe, who has a foot and a half in the next round after his win against Bayern.

But not only Real Madrid depends on itself to reach the quarterfinal cross; it is also in the hands of Valencia Basket and Baskonia. Those from Ponsarnau, who have three consecutive wins (six in the last eight games), have a balance of 17 wins and 14 losses and meet Olympiacos this Wednesday (21:00, Dazn). Then he has the Alba Berlin at home (this Friday) and the Baskonia at La Fonteta to close the course. Valencia, apart from a ticket for the playoff, will also play their place in the Euroleague next season. If he sneaks into the top eight he will play the top continental competition, if he does not go to the Eurocup.

Baskonia, who have nine victories in the last ten games, have two difficult commitments on the agenda: on Thursday they host Anadolu Efes (19:00) to end the season at La Fonteta against Valencia, in a match that may have in I play a playoff spot.
