A title they haven’t won since 2010 and which they came very close to last season, losing the final to Anadolu Efes. They are three games away from winning it or one game away from losing it, the one played tonight against Bayern of Munich at the Palau. A fifth game of the quarterfinal series that is an all or nothing for both, in which Barça leaves perhaps with a slight advantage for playing at home and having a squad of higher potential.

The percentages of three have dropped below 30 percent (in the regular phase they exceeded 40) with Kuric (3 out of 20) and Mirotic (5 out of 16) personifying Barça’s external problems.
With all available a Higgins exceptionthe other key point of the match will be the intensity. Bayern set the bar very high, defending each Barça attack with physical display and a commendable amount of help. Trincheri he has knew how to read the eliminatory like a charm and has rectified and corrected his players to be, with each game, a little more competitive. Y has many weapons. Lucic the first, but Deshaun Thomas He has already shown what he is capable of. Also players like Obst or Weiler-babb. They are a danger.
