Maccabi Tel Aviv – Armani Milano


I am confident you backed Barcelona in Game 3, as I suggested. Now it’s time to look at Game 4, with the Nokia Arena of Tel Aviv as central court. There we go.

MACCABI TEL AVIV – ARMANI MILANO:  I really don’t understand why Italian newspapers, especially La Gazzetta della Sport go crazy for Armani Milano. Probably they think this team is a symbol of the town of Milan moral superiority in the world. In my opinion Armani Milano is just a good team. Anyway, not good enough to win Game 4. Match scheduled for Wednesday, 23 April, 19:45 cet.

  • Maccabi @ 1.40 stake 2/10
