Four way tie possible
In theory, four qualified teams – Žabiny Brno, Pieštanske Čajky, Orange Lions and Nika Syktyvkar – may finish with a 5-2 record. A lot may happen in the next four games before we learn the final positioning of the teams.
Žabiny Brno are in a pole position with a 2-0 record and +41 against direct opponents (71:37 vs Čajky, 78:71 vs Nika). The Frogs will face Orange Lions on Saturday which may decide the first place in the group if the Dutch beat Pieštanske Čajky on Friday.
Nika Syktyvkar hold a 1-2 record and -8 against competition (71:78 vs Žabiny, 53:60 vs Čajky, 91:85 vs Orange Lions).
Orange Lions have a 0-1 record, -6 and the most difficult schedule at Liepāja. If they win both remaining games, they will top the Group A.
Pieštanske Čajky have a 1-1 win and loss ratio with -27. There are little chances to take the first place but if they beat the Orange Lions they will almost certainly finish second.
Liepāja has secured the seventh place but with two wins at home may finish in the fifth place.
