Two teams in red-hot form this season will clash in the sixth round of Euro League as AX Armani Exchange Milan (famously known as Olimpia Milano) host still-unbeaten Barcelona in the sixth round at Mediolanum Forum.
Following CSKA Moscow's surprising 79-84 defeat, Barcelona moved to the top spot following a tough 83-77 win over fellow Spanish outfit Valencia Basket. Barcelona are the only team with a 100% record in EuroLeague at the moment.
Milano are on a roll as well in EuroLeague. After starting the tournament with a 78-64 loss at Bayern Munich, Milano are now on a four-game winning streak, rising up to 3rd on the table as a result.
Barcelona did a sweep over Milano last season, winning both the games.
Milano's team-high 21 steals came against Barcelona in December 2005.
Milano also racked up its club-record 19 rebounds against Barcelona in October 2014.
