Here are the four groups of Euroleague Top 16, the beginning of the road to Euroleague Final Four in Madrid (May 2nd/4th). The challenge will begin next week, the winner and the second placed of each group will be admitted to the quarterfinals (best-of-three series), the winners will be at Madrid’s Final Four. All four groups are tough, but maybe Group G is the toughest, in front of Group F, apparently the easiest one. I try to prognosticate: Real Madrid, Panathinaikos, Cska Moskow and Lietuvos Rytas to the Final Four.

PANATHINAIKOS ATHENS (GREECE)

MONTEPASCHI SIENA (ITALY)

EFES PILSEN ISTANBUL (TURKEY)

GROUP E

TAU CERAMICA VITORIA (SPAIN)

FENERBAHCE ULKER ISTANBUL (TURKEY)

GROUP F
REAL MADRID (SPAIN)

MACCABI ELITE TEL AVIV (ISRAEL)

ZALGIRIS KAUNAS (LITHUANIA)

OLYMPIACOS PIRAEUS (GREECE)

GROUP G
