It doesn’t matter the sport: Barcelona vs Real Madrid is a match to get everyone’s blood pumping. When it also happens to be the semi-final of the 2022 EuroLeague basketball playoffs, though, you know it’s going to be especially spicy. While Barca were points leaders at the end of the regular season, Madrid have looked very solid in their route to the semis. The 2022 EuroLeague Final Four matches are free to watch on FreeSports in the UK. Here’s how to watch a Barcelona vs Real Madrid live stream wherever you are in the world.
It might be a case of first plays fourth but the form book goes out of the window on occasions like these. Madrid’s 18 wins and 10 loses won’t matter an awful lot when they face their big rivals in this Final Four match in Belgrade. Los Merengues were convincing in their 3-0 whitewash of Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv in the previous round. Will that bring them the added confidence they need to shoot for their 11th EuroLeague title?
Barca will need to shut down Madrid’s leading points scorer, French forward Guerschon Yabusele, if they’ve hopes to progress. They’ll also need to get hold of their nerve. The Catalans have made it to the Final Four on 15 occasions but only won the championship twice. Twenty-one wins and seven losses in the regular season isn’t a world away from their opponent’s record but can they show their extra class when it counts?
