2 very interesting matchups of greek teams vs. spanish teams.

about jerusalem, i sure hope they'll come to this games in a good shape, because in a good day, Jerusalem can beat alba even in Germany
Bilbao have been dominant in the Eurocup and I think they can be the dark horse to win it all in the competition. Valencia are obviously the favorites to win IMO. All I can do is hope that Hapoel find themselves on the right point of the rollercoaster they've been on this season and get past ALBA. We did beat Valencia in Spain (first European home loss in several years for them) and Kazan at home, two teams who were considered strong Final Four candidates at the beginning of the season, but Hapoel tend to also have awful games sometimes (3 losses vs Netanya this season including 2 at home, a loss against Holon at home recently and several lucky wins throughout the season). As MTA said, it all depends on which Hapoel shows up.
First game results:

CEZ Nymburk-Bilbao 47-59

Hapoel Jerusalem-Alba Berlin 67-61

Aris-Valencia 64-71

Panellinios-Canaria 81-70
panellinios by 11. not bad, i expected granca
Schwach wie flasche leer
Valencia and Bilbao can already book their tickets to Vitoria, as I expected. Hapoel surprised me with a 20 point lead vs Alba but couldn't hold on to it. I hope they win in Germany as well and don't make it up to the point differential. It's definitely possible to win there, Alba aren't that great.
From neutral fan's point of view it's a good thing that there no thrashing wins so every game is more or less open before the second leg.
Haoel was up by 20 (41-21) and 19 (49-30) but unfortnatly lost the big lead... It's not gonna be easy in Germany, but who knows

Alba made it! I'm so happy

Another torcherous game between Bilbao in Nymburk. Both teams should be ashamed of themselves for their performance in those two games.

Anyway it will be a nice f4 with Valencia, Bilbao, Panellinios and Alba.

Valencia are the favorites. Panellinios are my dark horse. I'll be supporting Alba. If Panellinios wins it, Greece will have 4 teams in the Euroleague next year after many years
