Shaken by the injury of Sergi Llull, Madrid faces the last day of the first phase of the Euroleague with the question of who will be their rival in the quarterfinals crossing. The match against Zalgiris does not help. Madrid is guaranteed third place, but there are five teams (Baskonia, Panathinaikos, Armani Milan, Zalgiris Kaunas and Olympiacos) that could occupy the sixth place and face the whites in the series prior to the Final Four of Vitoria to be played on the 17th to May 19.
The teams with the most options to cross with Laso's are Kirolbet Baskonia, who could host the Final Four, and Panathinaikos. The accounts of the people of Vitoria are very clear. If they win in Moscow CSKA would be sixth. They would also be sixth if they lose and the Greeks do it before the Buducnost, although this option is very unlikely. The Baskonia, in any case, is almost certainly to be among the best eight in case of defeat, since the basket-average with the other teams are favorable.
Despite the fact that the first three places are already decided (Fenerbahçe, CSKA Moscow and Real Madrid), the only tie of rooms already confirmed is the one that will face Anadolu Efes with Barcelona Lassa with the favorable factor of the Turkish team.
