Saski Baskonia will host Bayern Munich in the fifth round of 2019-20 edition of Euroleague which will take place in Fernando Buesa Arena.
Baskonia head into this game on the back of a closely fought 66-63 defeat against ASVEL, while Bayern recorded its 2nd win in three EuroLeague games with a 95-86 win over Real Madrid.
Baskonia will fancy their chances in front of their own fans as they have lost just once at home this season. They have a three-game winning streak at home. But Bayern poses a threat bigger than what Baskonia have faced so far in the tournament.
Bayern loves to play from the arc and are shooting better than 45% from beyond the arc. The German side is sixth on the points table and could go as high as 3rd with a win in this game.
Match Timing: November 02, 01:30 AM
Venue – Fernando Buesa Arena
