Barcelona – Efes

The Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Championship Game will pit FC Barcelona against Anadolu Efes Istanbul. Barcelona returns to play the final game of the season for the first time since 2010. It will be the third time this century Barcelona plays in the EuroLeague final, having won on both previous occasions in 2003 and 2010. Efes will play in consecutive EuroLeague championship games after having never reached one before 2019 as it aims for its first EuroLeague crown. After two semifinal thrillers that were decided by a combined margin of 5 points, Barcelona and Efes will give it all for the EuroLeague crown at Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany.

Barcelona arrives at the championship game with the league’s best defense, which allowed 73.2 points per game this season. Against Efes’s multiple backcourt threats, Barcelona will need to be aggressive and physical on the perimeter and use pressure to try to prevent the likes of Micic and Larkin from getting hot, and make them uncomfortable. Offensively, Barcelona will certainly look to slow down the tempo whether it will have Nick Calathes available to play or not while using the size end experience of Nikola Mirotic, Brandon Davies and Pau Gasol to do damage inside and help Barcelona win the title.

Every basketball fan by now knows that Efes’s strength is in its backcourt. It starts with the duo of Larkin and Micic, but is complemented by fellow guards Krunoslav Simon and Rodrigue Beaubois. This quartet combined to score 61 of the team’s 89 points in the semifinals and dished 11 of Efes’s 12 assists on Friday. Efes found solutions against Barcelona’s defense in their earlier meeting this season, but to keep Efes’s offense rolling once again on Sunday, these four perimeter players will need to be scoring and dealing and on top of their games.

Man City – Chelsea

  • Estadio do Dragao, Porto
  • This year: Man City 1 win, Chelsea 2 wins
  • This is the third all-English UCL final. Chelsea was part of the first one when they lost to Man Utd on penalties in 2008.

Team News

None of the managers has injury worries so they have a full squad to pick.

Gundogan was the last to declare fit for Guardiola, who will most probably start with a 4-3-3 formation and experienced Fernandinho in the midfield winning the ‘race’ with Rodri. A false-9 formation is what took Man City here in the European season and will come in act again in Porto.

Tuchel may have got the better of Josep Guardiola in the league and FA Cup in the past two months but this is a totally different game. The German will probably try to find something ‘new’ way to surprise City and at the same time needs to stick with the best combined starting eleven. It looks like rising star Havertz and experienced Giroud will both start on the bench.

Manchester City – Chelsea Possible line-ups

Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Ruben Dias, Zinchenko; Bernardo Silva, Fernandinho, Gundogan; Mahrez, De Bruyne, Foden

Chelsea: Mendy; Christensen, Thiago Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kante, Chilwell; Pulisic, Werner, Mount

Man City – Chelsea prediction

A great… chess match, with Chelsea having come out victorious on the two previous occasions. Total possession football from City, yet Chelsea have found their key in the league and cup, so the Citizens will be looking for something different, something that in Europe has to do with the different style of football they have adopted. Chelsea might be forced to play with counterattacks and expect City with plenty of depth in defence, . The common denominator is a solid defence, which can lead to a low scoring game with few goals.

But you know that especially in finals we also have a scenario in mind, which in this case sees City taking the lead through either of De Bruyne and Gundogan and Chelsea going forward later on and opening up a lot towards the end of the game. At that point, it will either stay 1-0 or City will score a second goal through Mahrez or Aguero, with the Argentinian expected to come on as a substitute for a last dance as a Citizen.

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

Euroleague basketball predictions The Euroleague Final Four is back. CSKA Moscow, Anadolu Efes, Barcelona and Milano will be in Cologne on 28-30 of May to fight for the Euroleague 2021 crown. Who will win it?

CSKA Moscow – Anadolu Efes

  • CSKA Moscow has won 20 of the 25 games played against Anadolu Efes since 2000.

The first game at the 2021 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four will be a repeat of the 2019 championship game in which CSKA Moscow outlasted Anadolu Efes Istanbul. While Efes brings back the same core of players from that game, led by All-EuroLeague guards Vasilije Micic and Shane Larkin, CSKA has a different look with Toko Shengelia and Iffe Lundberg having joined, though 2019 Final Four MVP Will Clyburn remains. These two teams have the top offenses in the league with CSKA (84.4 ppg.) a nose ahead of Efes (84.1 ppg.).

Efes boasts one of the most efficient offenses in the league and CSKA will need all of its guards, led by Hackett and Lundberg, to be active and aggressive on defense – without falling into foul trouble. CSKA has been strong on the glass all season and when it defeated Efes, it won the battle of the boards 46-29. When Efes won in Istanbul, the hosts edged CSKA on the glass 32-31. Controlling the rebounds will be pivotal on Friday.

Although Efes is known for its scoring, when it has played its best defense it has been toughest to beat. Efes was 19-6 this season when holding opponents below 80 points… And 6-8 when it has allowed teams to reach 80. Holding the league’s No. 1 offense below 80 is no easy task, but CSKA went 6-5 when it scored less than 80 and 21-5 when it reached 80. Accordingly, a lower-scoring game may work in Efes’s favor.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 164.5 points at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 28/05/2021, 07:30 CET, subject to change)

Barcelona – Milano

FC Barcelona returns to the Final Four for the first time since 2014 and looks for its first championship game appearance since lifting the trophy in 2010. Nikola Mirotic (15.5 ppg., 5.8 rpg.), Brandon Davies (12.1 ppg., 4.3 rpg.) and Cory Higgins (12.9 ppg.) have been its pillars throughout the season. AX Armani Exchange Milan heads to its first Final Four in 29 years. Its last championship game appearance was in 1988. Kevin Punter (14.4 ppg.) has been its top scorer, followed by Shavon Shields (13.9 ppg.) and Malcolm Delaney (11.6 ppg.). Expect a high-profile tactical battle between coaching masterminds Sarunas Jasikevicius of Barcelona and Ettore Messina of Milan at the magnificent Laxness Arena in Cologne, Germany.

Pau Gasol has given Barcelona a spark at both ends of the floor. He led the playoffs in PIR per 40 minutes (32.2) and his experience, talent and all-around scoring skills make Barcelona more unpredictable. Barcelona arguably played its best defensive game of the season at Mediolanum Forum. It held Milan to 15-of-39 shooting inside the arc (38.5%) and 2-of-15 from downtown (13.3%). Milan also committed 17 turnovers, which was a lot more than its season average (11.1). Getting anywhere close to these numbers should send Barcelona closer to the championship game. As always, Mirotic and Higgins should be their team’s leaders in crunch time, and stopping Shields should be a priority in this decisive game.

Calathes averaged 12.5 assists against Milan this season and the Italian powerhouse will try to prevent him from distributing the ball so fluently. Milan ranks 17th in offensive rebounds this season (8.2 orpg.) and Barcelona has excelled at that all season, averaging 10.5 per night. Boxing out to get the defensive boards should be critical for Milan, as it can find easy points in transition through Delaney and Rodriguez. Experience is on Milan’s side, as players like Datome, Rodriguez and especially Hines know what it takes to be successful in this environment. Well-rounded streak shooters like Punter and Michael Roll should give Milan a spark in a one-of-a-kind showdown like this.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+6.5) at 1.90 with bet365
