Alba Berlin will play host to PBC CSKA Moscow in EuroLeague fourth-round match at Mercedes-Benz Arena Berlin.
The hosts suffered a 103-84 defeat against Spanish giants Barcelona in their last EuroLeague assignment despite making a fine start in the match. Cory Higgins played the role of a perfect antagonist for Berlin as they failed to mark him, both on the race and inside the paint, with the 30-year-old scoring 22 points in just 19 minutes.
That said, Alba Berlin are on the familiar shores in the domestic competition as they lead the charge in Basketball Bundesliga. The largest Basketball club in Germany is sitting atop on the table in Bundesliga following a 100% start after the first four games.
What competition it is? Euro League Basketball
The match will be played between Alba Berlin and PBC CSKA MOSCOW at Mercedes-Benz Arena Berlin, in Friedrichshain neighbourhood of Berlin, Germany. The arena has a capacity of 17,000.
