Real Madrid has won each of the last eight meetings against Gran Canaria, which include a victory in the latest meeting in November of last year. Gran Canaria hasn’t beaten Real Madrid since May of 2018.
Gran Canaria was playing improved basketball the last time we saw them, but they're now going up against a club that's owned them over the years and is probably the hottest team in the league right now. Real Madrid has not lost a game since February 2, and its coming off a 22-point victory over Basket Zaragoza where they outscored them in all four quarters. When Real Madrid plays to the level its capable of playing at, there's not a whole lot Gran Canaria can do and the past results have shown just that.
I'll lay the chalk with Real Madrid.
