Saski Baskonia are set to host Bayern Munich in Euro League sixth round in what will only be its second home game of the season. Baskonia had to swallow a tough pill after suffering a 66-63 defeat on the road against ASVEL, while Bayern tasted victory in its last game, beating Real Madrid 95-86 for their 2nd win in three EuroLeague games.
This is a very important fixture for Baskonia if they want to remain relevant in the league. As things stand they are 10th on the table with a 2-3 record. So a defeat will leave at 2-4 and four games off the pace. It's a significant gap, and unbridgeable too if you consider how they have performed this season.
Bayern Munich face no such problem. They are sixth and boast a positive record from the first five games. But the German giants are too inconsistent for a team looking to win the championship. That said, Bayern could end this round at 3rd with a win if other results favour them.
