Virtus Bologna Vs. Baskonia: Round 34 match prediction.

Virtus Bologna will face Baskonia in the 34th round of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague at the LDLC Arena on April 12, 2024, at 19:00 (UTC). The match is crucial for both teams as a victory would provide them with a significant advantage in this year’s Euroleague play-in, securing the 8th place. It’s worth noting that Virtus Bologna currently holds 9th place in the standings with 17 wins and 16 losses, while Baskonia, with the same win record, occupies the 8th place. The winner of this match will secure 8th place and face Maccabi Tel Aviv on the road in a single game. Conversely, the loser will confront the winner of the match between the 9th and 10th place teams, albeit this time at home.

Two potential scenarios arise if Efes, currently in 10th place, manages to defeat Crvena Zvezda in their final home game. If Virtus Bologna suffers defeat, they will descend to 10th place, the least favorable position despite being in the play-in. If Baskonia loses, they will claim 9th place due to a superior point difference in their encounters with Efes. Consequently, they will enjoy an advantage over 10th place Efes, hosting them in a single game.
