Anadolu Efes welcomes Alba Berlin, hoping to get its second win in the Group E of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague.

Efes comes off a big home win against Panathinaikos last week and will try to keep its momentum going. The German side, however, registered back-to-back home losses and needs to bounce back right away.

“A very important game for us because we do not want to lose at home,” Efes center Stanko Barac said. “We will do our best to win.”

Real Madrid, group leader with two wins in as many games, will host Zalgiris Kaunas in another Group E game.
