CSKA Moscow will face Anadolu Efes as big favourite in this match. In fact, I don't see Anadolu Efes able to win against a top team especially considering how they are playing. They lost every single match played in the group right now.
They were destroyed by Real Madrid and Fenerbache and they lost "only" by 7 against Valencia (They were down by 18 before the 4th quarter). Their offense was just terrible as they have scored less than 75 points in all of the 3 matches. Anadolu Efes is a good team at home in their domestic league but here in Europe things change.
CSKA Moscow, on the other hand, won 2 of the 3 matches played. The only team able to defeat them was Real Madrid (82-69) but they won against Panathinaikos and Olimpia Milano. Cska Moscow has much more better players imo...they are a class team and they should not suffer the trip away from home.
It's true that Anadolu Efes will have the home advantage but this will be not enough to beat CSKA Moscow.
CSKA Moscow won 8 of the last 9 matches played against Anadolu Efes and they won 3 of the last 4 matches played away from home against them. Their only loss came in 2013! Considering that Anadolu Efes is having big problems in Euroleague and that CSKA Moscow is much more strong team, I think that CSKA Moscow will cover this handicap without big problems..I see them winning this one with at least 7 points of margin. I think that odds for CSKA Moscow to win are too high in this one.
Prediction: Anadolu Efes 78-86 Cska Moscow
