ALBA Berlin will be looking to end a three-game skid in EuroLeague when they host Olimpia Milano in the fifth round match at Mercedes-Benz Arena Berlin.
CSKA Moscow, the current leader, and the defending champions were too hot to handle for ALBA Berlin as the team from Moscow bullied their German counterpart right from the off. Berlin were hardly able to put up a fight, and the game was done and dusted in the third quarter when CSKA sprang up a 22-8 run to take a 19 point lead.
ALBA Berlin, who started the fourth round in the top half of the table, dropped down to 15th on the points table.
Olimpia Milano, meanwhile, recorded their third straight victory in EuroLeague after getting the better of Fenerbahce 87-74 at Mediolanum Forum.
Sergio Rodriguez led the way for the hosts with a game-high 22 points, while Arturas Gudaitis and Amedeo Della Valle made significant contributions off the bench with 17 and 15 points respectively. With a 3-1 record from the first four games, Milano are 5th on the points table, only one game behind leaders CSKA Moscow and Barcelona.
