Maccabi come out as firm favourite against Caja in Euroleague quaterfinal match. They lead 2:1, breaking serie in Spain and winning last match with big point spread. This is seen as final match before final four for Maccabi and there is a certain preasure on them. Similar situation were recent year when they have battle with Partizan and lost game in Tel Aviv for final drop from Euroleague. Caja coach Ivanovic is very expirience when playing game as underdog. Caja won national title when they were not consider real in clash with Barca last year, but they make break and claim title. Recent big loss do not have to mean nothigh to Caja. They play with Maccabi this year five time and team know each other well. Maccabi coach Platt is quality manager, but have no much expirience in Europian club Basketball. (With main club). Also he should try to take match on a small amount of point becauze of importance and in that kind of situation it is difficult to one team make bigger difference.
Caja have large advantage at centre line where home team practicaly have only Scorcianiis, and should have finnaly try to use that. Also home team have problem with Spain team losing twice from Caja and Barca. They genneraly have light opponent treought group with Khimky, Roma, Paritzan, Zalgirih, Prokom. Tonight they will face real tight match and it should not be great favourite in game, with light closer to suprise Caja+++
