Valencia's win over Gran Canaria puts paid to the Whites' chances of progressing to the semi-finals (9:30pm CEST).
Real Madrid head into their final Group B game this evening against Casademont Zaragoza (9:30pm CEST). Valencia Basket's victory over Herbalife Gran Canaria has ended Pablo Laso's men's chances of advancing to the semi-finals.

The madridistas, who have won two and lost two, will be seeking a third win against opposition who are already mathematically out of the competition. However, Casademont Zaragoza will want to finish off their run in the best possible fashion and pick up a second win, having beaten Gran Canaria last time out.

Campazzo averages 16 points in the Final Phase.

Defensive concentration, as Deck reiterated, and accuracy from the outside will be the key aspects against Porfirio Fisac's men. Laso charges have already produced fine performances in this Final Phase against Herbalife Gran Canaria and Valencia Basket. Campazzo (16 points), Carroll (11,7) and Tavares (9.2 and 8.2 rebounds) are the standout men in offense so far.

The opposition
Following a superb Regular Season campaign which saw them sitting in third place ahead of the break, the team from Aragon have fallen short of a qualification chance heading into the final Group B meeting, with one win to three defeats so far. Despite that fact, Zaragoza remain dangerous opposition with wonderful shooters like Brussino (15.2 points) and Dylan Ennis (13.7), alongside an impressive Carlos Alocén (8.2 PIR).
