One Team RS25

Darussafaka Tekfen Istanbul vs. Panathinaikos OPAP Athens

The home team's last memory is a good one.

Two years ago this week at Volkswagen Arena, Darussafaka got its first victory in four tries against Panathinaikos, a 77-72 decision that followed three losses by six points or less.

Zalgiris Kaunas vs. Herbalife Gran Canaria

The visitors will be advised to bring a sweater.

The average March 7 temperature in Gran Canaria is 20 degrees centigrade. The average in Kaunas is 0.

FC Bayern Munich vs. Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv

Maccabi won their only previous meeting in Germany.

Alex Tyus of Maccabi and Nihad Dedovic of Bayern are the only players left from the first meeting in Munich between these clubs, back in 2014.

Real Madrid vs. Fenerbahce Istanbul

Fenerbahce has wins in 2 of its last 3 trips to Madrid.

For its first road win in the Spanish capital, series-clinching Game 3 of the 2016 playoffs, Fenerbahce matched a club record with 46 rebounds, including 8 from Nikola Kalinic, his career high.

CSKA Moscow vs. AX Armani Exchange Olimpia Milan

The visitors have won only once this century in Moscow.

Milan's victory in the Russian capital was a big one, however, 73-88 in Round 1 back in 2010, which eventually led to CSKA's only season of the last 16 missing the Final Four.

Anadolu Efes Istanbul vs. FC Barcelona Lassa

Barcelona likes to shoot at the Sinan Erdem Dome.

Last time there, the visitors tied a EuroLeague record with 19 three-pointers made, including 4 each from Pau Ribas and Victor Claver.

Buducnost VOLI Podgorica vs. Olympiacos Piraeus

Until this season, Buducnost and Olympiacos did not play each other.

Neither did most of their players, with one of the exceptions being Edwin Jackson, whose sole EuroLeague playoffs scoring is a three-pointer vs. Olympiacos in 2014.

KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz vs. Khimki Moscow Region

Two of Khimki's players were victorious in Vitoria before.

Petr Gubanov scored when Khimki won for the first time in Vitoria on February 11, 2010, and Egor Vyaltsev did the same three years later.
