NEWS | 09/01/2020 | Edu Bueno

The Whites are looking for their 13th consecutive win to equal their best ever run in the competition (9:00pm CET).
Real Madrid head into the second half of the Euroleague campaign this evening, with the first clash coming against Zalgiris Kaunas. They do so sitting joint top of the table alongside Anadolu Efes with 14 wins, the last 12 in a row, just one away from equalling their record in the competition, set back in the 2013-14 season. Following three encounters on the road, the Whites come back to the WiZink Center, where they are unbeaten this term, to take on a rival who ended and began the year in winning fashion.

Today's game is a welcome return home in the midst of a marathon stretch on the road. Real Madrid have not played a Euroleague clash at the WiZink Center since the 17th of December. Baskonia, Panathinaikos and Asvel have proven tough away opposition, but the madridistas' outstanding form has nonetheless ensured a full run of victories. A win over Zalgiris, currently in 16th place, is crucial in remaining at the top of the table ahead of a demanding double-header away from home for Laso's men next week: CSKA and Khimki.

First Euroleague game of the year at home.

Despite their league position, the Lithuanian team will be no easy ride. They come into the clash having won their last two (Bayern and Maccabi) and on the back of success at the Palacio last season. They also got the better of the Whites in the first half of this campaign, 86-73. The game pits two of the Euroleague's best defenses against each other (both concede 76 points on average). However, in offense, Real Madrid average almost 10 points more than their rivals (85.3 to 75.7), and they'll have to make that count despite their injury woes. Rudy, infalible from 6.75 at the start of the year, and Thompkins have really stepped up to solidify the offense in recent games.

17 from 17 at the WiZink
The rebound is sure to be another key area, given Jasikevicius' team's strength in that regard, particularly offensively. Real Madrid must not relax on what has been one of their standout aspects so far this term. The Whites will be without Llull, Randolph and Deck, but the Palacio is proving decisive. Not a single team has managed to win at the WiZink Center so far this season - Laso's men have recorded 17 wins in 17 games (9 in the Euroleague and 8 in the league)… now they want to make it 18.
