Nothing is set in stone, but considering what happened so far in the history of Euroleague playoffs, both Fenebahce and CSKA Moscow thanks to their 2-0 start, can make plans about the Berlin Final Four.

Since the 2008-09, when the Euroleague playoffs became best of five series, no team has ever come back after a 0-2 start.

Even after a Game 5 in all the cases, the hosts prevailed and got the ticke to the Final Four.

If the rule remains the same, then Real Madrid will miss the Final Four for the first time since 2012 and Fenerbahce will be among the top four teams for the second year in a row.

CSKA Moscow on the hand is on the route for getting its 11th qualification in 11 playoffs series, missing the Final Four in recent years only in 2011, when the team was disqualified during the regular season.
