Zenit – Barcelona (1-1)

Kevin Pangos shined with 19 points and 9 assists as Zenit stunned Barcelona 74-76 in the series opener. Zenit took control in the second quarter when its lead reached 17 points, but Barcelona fought back to go ahead in the penultimate minute. K.C. Rivers and Pangos answered to help Zenit capture the win. In Game 2, Barcelona edged Zenit 81-78 in an overtime thriller. Brandon Davies led the winners with 22 points and Adam Hanga came up big in overtime with 5 points and a couple of critical steals.

Zenit St Petersburg, the only team to win on the road in the first week of the playoffs, will look to make it stand up when it hosts FC Barcelona in Game 3 of their best-of-five Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs series on Wednesday. Whichever team wins Game 3 will then play for a spot at the Final Four already from Game 4 on Friday, while the Game 2 loser will be with its back to the wall, so an intense contest can be expected, even more than the entertaining first two games on the series.

Losing Mateusz Ponitka before Game 1 and Arturas Gudaitis during the series opener to injuries have put a strain on the Zenit bench. Coach Xavi Pascual’s squad has accounted for just 21 points off the bench in Game 1 and 13 in Game 2. Getting more production from the likes of Billy Baron, Alex Poythress and Andrey Zubkov could make a big difference in Game 3.

Even though Barcelona boss Sarunas Jasikevicus spent two years coaching Kevin Pangos and turning him into an All-EuroLeague level point guard, he has not found the answers to stop the Zenit ace in this series. What’s more, Zenit has made 59.4% of its two-point shots so far in the series, while Barcelona has shot a subpar 42.1%. Finding a way to slow down Pangos and playing better at both ends in the paint are critical for Barcelona.

basketball prediction Tip: Zenit – Barcelona Under 149.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Fenerbahce – CSKA Moscow (0-2)

CSKA took control of the series at home, but had to work hard for its two wins. It trailed entering the fourth quarter in Game 1 before taking charge with a 28-10 finish to the game. CSKA held on in Game 2 with an 18-12 fourth quarter. Daniel Hackett has averaged 17.0 points, 6.0 assists and 20 steals to lead the hosts so far.

Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul will look to extend its Turkish Airlines EuroLeague campaign for at least 48 hours when it hosts CSKA Moscow in Game 3 of their best-of-five playoff series on Wednesday. CSKA won both games in the Russian capital and another victory will send it to its ninth consecutive Final Four. Fenerbahce, which has been to six straight Final Fours, must win out to make another one.

Fenerbahce came into the series knowing that rebounding would be an issue and so far, CSKA has dominated the boards 62-46. That includes 23 offensive rebounds which have been converted into 21 second-chance points. Fenerbahce will need to take care of business at home in that department to strengthen its chances of winning Game 3.

CSKA has moved the ball better than at any points all season in the playoffs. After averaging 15.8 assists per game in the regular season, that number has jumped to 20.5 in the postseason. The better ball movement has resulted in better looks, which CSKA has cashed in at 28 for 64 (43.8%) on three-pointers. If CSKA continues to stretch Fenerbahce’s defense and make its threes, it is tough to stop.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-1.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 28/04/2021, 08:50 CET, subject to change)

Bayern – Milano (0-2)

The first two games were very different; Bayern let a 19-point lead slip away in Game 1 and lost when Zach LeDay’s tip-in on the buzzer gave Milan a 79-78 victory. Milan never trailed after the opening minutes in Game 2 en route to an 80-69 triumph. Kevin Punter led the way with 20 points.

This exciting series moves to Germany when on Wednesday FC Bayern Munich hosts AX Armani Exchange Milan. Bayern has its back to the wall after losing the first two games, but will surely come motivated for its first-ever playoff home game. A victory for Milan will send it to the Final Four for the first time since 1992.

Bayern has averaged 73.5 points on 40.8% two-point shooting and 13.0 assists in the first two games of the playoffs after producing 78.3 points on 51.0% two-point shooting and 16.4 assists in the regular season and 80.5 points on 52.4% two-point shooting and 16.9 assists in wins. Coach Andrea Trinchieri’s men will need to raise their numbers in those categories to improve their chances of winning Game 3 and extending the series.

Milan was second in the regular season in three-point shooting accuracy during the regular season at 41.6%, but has struggled in that area so far in the playoffs. Coach Ettore Messina’s men have made just 13 of 45 three-point tries (28.9%). The good news is that Milan has won so far with that subpar shooting, but regaining its form in Munich could be the recipe for a sweep.

Arsenal – Villareal

arsenal villareal preview

Mikel Arteta, Arsenal coach: “It’s true for some players it might be their last season [at the club] for different reasons. I can see how much [the UEFA Europa League] means to them and how much they want it. [Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang] played well [in Sunday’s 2-0 win at Newcastle] and he felt much better than the days before that. Scoring a goal is really important for him so he’s in a good place. I think it’s only the tenth time the club have played a European semi-final so it’s a big moment for us.”

Unai Emery, Villarreal coach: “We are going into this second leg with maximum respect for Arsenal and the Europa League, and lots of enthusiasm. We are going to see Aubameyang in action, so we are going to see the best of Arsenal, individually and collectively. The first-leg result doesn’t change my view of the tie: Arsenal started as favourites and they are still favourites. We will do our best to compete.”

Possible line-ups

Arsenal: Leno; Chambers, Holding, Pablo Marí, Xhaka; Elneny, Partey, Smith Rowe; Pépé, Aubameyang, Saka

Villarreal: Rulli; Mario, Albiol, Pau Torres, Pedraza; Chuckweze, Parejo, Coquelin, Trigueros; Alcácer, Moreno

Chelsea – Real Madrid prediction

If there is one team in Europe that can change the odds to their favor then it is Real Madrid. Zidane and his players are so experienced that they have a real chance in getting the result they need in London. Firstly they need to score and it is a very possible scenario, probably with the ‘usual suspect’ Benzema finding the net. Chelsea will find the answer but Real will already have turned favorites because one goal will then be enough to get them to the final. It might be scored in the injury time. If not, a penalty shoot out can see them through. My main prediction is both teams to score though. Just to be clear.

Tip 1: Both Teams To Score (G/G) at 1.95 – bet365
Tip 2: Real Madrid to qualify at 2.25 – bet365

Man City – PSG

  • ETIHAD Stadium, Manchester
  • 1st leg: PSG – Man City 1-2
  • Paris has no win in 4 occasions versus City (0-2-2).
  • Their previous encounter was in the Champions League of 2015-16 with Man City winning the tie and reaching the semi-finals of the competition for the first and only time.

Man City – PSG injuries

Man City: Eric Garcia (DC) is out due to illness.

PSG: Mpappe (FRLC) is a major doubt for Pochettino. Wing-back Bernat (D/M/WL) is sidelined. Gueye (DM) is suspended.

Man City – PSG Possible line-ups

Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Rúben Dias, Cancelo; Rodri, Gündoğan; Mahrez, Bernardo Silva, Foden; De Bruyne

Paris: Navas; Florenzi, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Diallo; Verratti, Paredes; Di María, Neymar, Draxler; Icardi

Man City – PSG prediction

I have a feeling this tie is not over just yet. Paris has so much quality that can try to turn things around and if they score first then they have a real chance. Man City has been the best team in the competition so far, but that home game versus Dortmund could have gone all wrong and it’s still a fresh memory. I’ll take the risk and bet on the away win.

Tip 1: Away win (2) at 4.75 – bet365
Tip 2: Both Teams To Score (G/G) at 1.61 – bet365
