Prometheus hosts Paris with home advantage in the EuroCup KO rounds where the game is seen



Prometheus welcomes Paris (7.30 p.m., Novasports Prime and LIVE from Sportish) to the 17th (penultimate) matchday of the EuroCup with the goal of a win that secures at least 4th place in its group while also securing home advantage in the stage of 16 of the event.

The most important game of the season for Prometheus in Europe is today (22/3). The Patrinos welcome Paris (7.30 p.m., Novasports Prime and LIVE from Sportish) on the 17th (penultimate) day of the EuroCup in a much decisive game.

If Prometheus wins, they will secure at least fourth place – and thus home advantage in the round of 16. It is recalled that 8 teams from each group will qualify based on a behavioral system for the next stage where qualification for the Quarterfinals will be determined by the logic of knockout in a single game. In general, the first 4 of each group play with the well-known crosses (1-8, 2-7, 3-6, 4-5) for home qualification.

Prometheus had won the first round match in Paris (71-74), which means that with a win it is at least 4th place. There are also scenarios that can put him in both 3rd and 2nd place depending on the results of Hapoel Tel Aviv and Turk Telecom who are above him in the rankings.

However, before Prometheus jumps into the final race scenarios, he wants to secure at least 4th place first, which will happen if he wins today. Otherwise, if they lose, they will be out of luck on the final day of play and will likely finish 5th.
