CSKA – Real Madrid

This showdown is between the last two Turkish Airlines EuroLeague champions. Both teams are on five-game winning streaks, which adds even more anticipation to this exciting showdown. Mike James (18.6 ppg.) has been CSKA’s top scorer until now, followed by Will Clyburn (16.4 ppg.) and Darrun Hilliard (11.1 ppg.). Real is currently led by Walter Tavares (10.3 ppg., 6.0 rpg.), Trey Thompkins (10.9 ppg.) and Sergio Llull (10.1 ppg.). Expect a top-class game between the two winningest teams in competition history.

CSKA has scored 84 points or more in each win in its current streak. That has allowed the Russian powerhouse to lead the EuroLeague standings at 83.0 points per game. It all starts with strong defense, a high rhythm, and players like Joel Bolomboy, Nikita Kurbanov and Daniel Hackett bringing intensity at both ends. CSKA is expected to keep running its offense through James, Clyburn and Milutinov, but has a lot of talented players to involve in the offense if it becomes a defensive slugfest.

Nico Laprovittola, Carlos Alocen and Sergio Llull are expected to share the point guard duties from now on. Real has a size advantage in the paint with tall, experienced players such as Tavares, Thompkins and Anthony Randolph. If Jeffery Taylor remains sidelined, Rudy Fernandez and Alberto Abalde will have the tough mission to guard Clyburn. Real must prevent CSKA from circulating the ball well, getting Milutinov involved and as always, must lock down the defensive glass to get its trademark transition offense going.

Fabien Causeur tested positive for COVID-19 and has not played since Round 2.

(Price correct at 26/11/2020, 08:25 CET, subject to change)

Zalgiris – Zenit

After a great start, Zalgiris is on a four-game losing streak and hopes to bounce back right away. Marius Grigonis, Thomas Walkup, Joffrey Lauvergne and sixth-man Lukas Lekavicius have led the Lithuanian champs so far this season. Billy Baron, Kevin Pangos, Arturas Gudaitis and Will Thomas have been Zenit’s pillars. With two masterminds like Martin Schiller and Xavi Pascual on the respective benches, expect a first-class tactical battle at Zalgirio Arena.

Zalgiris has allowed 85 points or more in each of its games on its current losing streak. Improving its defense is mandatory to be more competitive. Collapsing the paint to contain Gudaitis or Thomas and cutting down on turnovers, which would allow Zenit to get points in transition, are keys. Zalgiris must speed up the game tempo with Walkup and Lekavicius, making the most of its mobile big men, Lauvergne and Augustine Rubit, in transition.

Zalgiris swingman Patricio Garino will be out of action until December after a knee operation.

Zenit is a very tactical, five-on-five offense team with excellent ball circulation, always looking for good shots without rushing them. They have a lot of versatility at forward with Thomas and Alex Poythress and reliable shooters in Baron and Rivers. KC Rivers and Gudaitis have played for Zalgiris in the past and their extra motivation will be a plus for Coach Pascual’s team. If Pangos and Dmitry Khvostov can control the game tempo and slow it down, Zenit is expected to have more chances to win.

basketball prediction Tip: Winning margin 3-way: Any other result (1-5p difference) at 2.60 with bet365
(Price correct at 26/11/2020, 08:25 CET, subject to change)

Crvena Zvezda – Efes

Crvena Zvezda returns home after a bittersweet two-round week in which it registered a 79-87 win in Milan and a 76-65 loss in Barcelona. Jordan Loyd (19.2 ppg.) has been Zvezda’s top scorer until now, followed by Corey Walden (12.2 ppg.) and Johnny O’Bryant (10.8 ppg.). Efes comes off a convincing 77-105 road victory against Khimki Moscow Region. Shane Larkin (16.0 ppg.), Krunoslav Simon (14.6 ppg.) and Vasilije Micic (13.7 ppg.) are the team’s main pillars. Expect an exciting game at Aleksandar Nikolic Hall.

Zvezda needs to improve its two-point shooting percentage as it currently ranks last overall at 48.3%. Dejan Davidovac, Ognjen Kuzmic and Emanuel Terry, however, are shooting over 60% inside the arc, so getting them involved on offense would generate more space for Loyd and Walden to play one-on-one. Zvezda is averaging 6.6 steals and 10.4 offensive rebounds and that aggressiveness at both ends is required when you play a deep, talented team like Efes.

Larkin comes off his best game of the season, which is great news for Efes and bad for everyone else. Larkin was a dominant force in the EuroLeague last season and he makes everyone around him better. If Bryant Dunston remains sidelined, Tibor Pleiss and Sertac Sanli are set to share the center duties. Getting Micic and Simon involved is important, too, as is spreading the floor with either Chris Singleton and Adrien Moerman at power forward. If Efes can rebound and run, it is a very hard team to stop.

Bryant Dunson has missed Efes’s last four games. Rodrigue Beaubois has missed the last two games.

ALBA Berlin – Khimki

In a clash of two teams near the bottom of the standings that split their games last week, ALBA Berlin hosts Khimki Moscow Region on Thursday. ALBA boasts a balanced attack so even without injured sharpshooter Marcus Eriksson, it has seven more players averaging at least 7 points. Khimki features six players averaging double figures in scoring led by Alexey Shved (18.0 ppg., 8.6 apg.) and Devin Booker (16.2 ppg., 8.4 rpg.).

ALBA is undefeated this season when it has scored at least 75 points, and it has now held its opponents to that number in three games in a row. What’s more, Khimki has allowed more points (85.6 ppg.) than any teams in the league. With Peyton Siva back at point guard, ALBA is close to full strength, though it is missing an important perimeter threat in the injured Marcus Eriksson. If Niels Giffey and co. can pick up the slack from behind the three-point line and the ALBA offense gets going, it can challenge for its second win.

ALBA will be without shooting guard Marcus Eriksson and forward Lorenz Brenneke for the next few weeks due to ankle injuries.

Despite the presence of a strong and deep frontline with Devin Booker, Jonas Jerebko, Jordan Mickey and Greg Monroe, Khimki has been outrebounded this season and is only converting 51.3% of its two-point shots, which is in the bottom fourth of the league. The talent is there for Khimki to dominate inside and controlling the paint in Berlin could put it in position for a second consecutive road win.

Stefan Jovic has not played yet this season due to an ankle injury. Devin Booker has not played since Round 5.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (-5.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 26/11/2020, 08:25 CET, subject to change)

Olympiacos – Baskonia

Olympiacos Piraeus hosts TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz on Thursday. While Baskonia captured two victories during the two rounds played last week, Olympiacos was forced to the sidelines due to quarantine restrictions and missed its last two scheduled games. How quickly it can regain its form will be critical to this game.

Olympiacos will be both well-rested and potentially rusty after more than a week at home. How quickly it can find its footing in the game will be key. Without a single player averaging double figures in points, Olympiacos relies heavily on teamwork and depth. Its high-energy players such as Shaquielle McKissic, Kostas Papanikolaou and Charles Jenkins could be more important than ever versus Baskonia.

Baskonia is third in the league in rebounding (35.3 rpg.) and has outrebounded its opponents in all four of its wins this season. Between the height of Youssoupha Fall, the activity of Achille Polonara, the power of Tonye Jekiri and the assistance from the backcourt of Henry and Tadas Sedekerskis, Baskonia has the tools to deal with Olympiacos’s tough big guys. Controlling the glass and getting out in transition could set the stage for Baskonia first road win of the season.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (-1.0) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 26/11/2020, 08:25 CET, subject to change)

Maccabi – Milano

Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv seeks to put an end to its two-game slide against an AX Armani Exchange Milan side trying for its first winning streak since Rounds 1 and 2. After dropping just one home game last season, the Israeli champs are 2-2 in Tel Aviv this season and trying to recapture that lost magic. Milan is 1-2 on the road this season.

Three-point shooting is so important to the Maccabi attack to stretch the floor for Ante Zizic inside and to allow the guards to penetrate. With Dragan Bender, Angelo Caloiaro and Oz Blayzer all able to hit from the outside as power forwards, not to mention the firepower in shooters Wilbekin, Tyler Dorsey and Elijah Bryant, getting threes to fall is a must. So far Maccabi’s 35.6% shooting from deep is in the bottom quarter of the standings, but the team is 41.0% in wins. Getting a number close to that would make a big difference for Coach Sfairopoulos’s men.

Sandy Cohen has been suspended by the club for this week’s game.

The second-most accurate shooting from downtown (40.3%) and the second-fewest turnovers (11.3 per game) in the league are keys to winning on any court. What Milan needs to add to that in Tel Aviv is a strong showing on the boards. Milan is ranked 15th of 18 teams in rebounding (30.4 rpg.), while Maccabi (35.8 rpg.) leads the league and is fourth in offensive rebounding (10.6 orpg.). Kyle Hines, Zach LeDay and Kaleb Tarczewski must make their presence felt on the glass to help Milan score another key road win.

CSKA Moscow – Crvena Zvezda

  • CSKA holds a 9-2 advantage in EuroLeague games against Crvena Zvezda.

CSKA Moscow (2-1) takes on Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (2-1) in the Russian capital as both teams look for a third consecutive victory. Both won at home in Round 3. CSKA never trailed in its 77-67 triumph against Zenit St Petersburg. Toko Shengelia erupted for a career-high 33 points and had 8 of those during a 16-2 start to the game. He also collected a team-high 8 rebounds. However, Shengelia hurt his shoulder and will not be available on Friday, joining Nikola Milutinov and Marius Grigonis on the injured list. As such, CSKA will depend that much more on Will Clyburn, who had 16 points and 7 boards against Zenit.

Zvezda defeated Zalgiris Kaunas 73-61 at Stark Arena. Nikola Kalinic scored 13 of his team-high 15 points in the second half to pace Zvezda. Ognjen Dobric added 13 points, Luka Mitrovic got 12 points and 7 rebounds and Nate Wolters had 11 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists for the Serbian powerhouse. CSKA is 15-2 against Zvezda, and 9-0 at home, since their first meeting on January 15, 1970.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+11.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Monaco – Barcelona

  • This is the first-ever official meeting between the two clubs.

AS Monaco (2-1) takes on FC Barcelona (3-0) at Salle Gaston Medecin in what is an unprecedented event in European basketball history, as these teams have never faced each other before. Monaco comes off its first loss of the season, and first as a EuroLeague team, 94-86 against Real Madrid in the Spanish capital on Wednesday. Mike James led Monaco with 24 points and 10 assists but could not finish the game due to injury. Donta Hall added 12 points while Will Thomas had 11 for the principality powerhouse.

Barcelona leads the standings and remains undefeated but needed overtime to down Olympiacos Piraeus 79-78 on Wednesday night. Pierre Oriola was Barcelona’s hero, hitting the go-ahead free throws with 7.6 seconds left. Nikola Mirotic led Barcelona with 22 points. Cory Higgins added 11, while Brandon Davies picked up 10 and Nick Calathes flirted with a triple-double with 9 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (+7.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Olympiacos – Zalgiris

  • Olympiacos and Zalgiris are tied at 13-13 in their meetings this century. Zalgiris has won three in a row and seven of the last eight.

Olympiacos Piraeus (2-1) hosts Zalgiris Kaunas (0-3) on Friday for Round 4 in a classic Turkish Airlines EuroLeague showdown in which both teams seek to get one victory from the season’s first double-round week. Olympiacos comes off its first loss, 79-78 in overtime against FC Barcelona. Kostas Sloukas had 14 points, Tyler Dorsey and Sasha Vezenkov both scored 12 for Olympiacos. Zalgiris lost 73-61 at Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade on Wednesday. Josh Nebo paced Zalgiris with 14 points and 10 rebounds and Niels Giffey and Lukas Lekavicius added 11 points apiece.

It should be a very special game for Thomas Walkup, who faces Zalgiris for the first time after three seasons with the club. Zalgiris head coach Jure Zdovc won the 1992-93 EuroLeague title with Limoges CSP in the very same building, Peace and Friendship Stadium. It is a rematch of the 1999 EuroLeague semifinals and the 2018 EuroLeague playoffs. On both occasions, Zalgiris was victorious. The Lithuanian powerhouse is 14-13 against the Reds.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+11.0) at 1.90 with bet365

Milano – Efes

  • Milan and Efes have played each other at least twice in each of the past 11 seasons. Efes holds a 20-10 edge in games this century, but Milan swept their series last season.

ALBA Berlin (1-2) welcomes Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz (1-2) to the German capital in a clash of two teams looking to build on their most recent performance. Both ALBA and Baskonia registered their first wins of the season on Tuesday. ALBA scored 57 second-half points to rally from a double-digit deficit and sink visiting Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul 84-70 behind 22 points from Oscar da Silva and 21 points from Maodo Lo.

Baskonia edged Panathinaikos OPAP Athens 81-79 with Rokas Giedraitis and former ALBA forward Simone Fontecchio each scoring 16 points. In head-to-head games, ALBA swept Baskonia last season and the German champs have won three of their last four games, including both games in Berlin over the last two seasons.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 at 2.35 with bet365

Real Madrid – Panathinaikos

  • In their clashes since 2000, Real Madrid holds a 21-10 edge over Panathinaikos and has won 12 in a row.

In a battle of Turkish Airlines EuroLeague powerhouses, Real Madrid (2-1) takes on Panathinaikos OPAP Athens (1-2) on Friday in Round 4. Real is undefeated at home and comes off a hard-fought victory against AS Monaco, 94-86. Guerschon Yabusele led the way with 18 points. Thomas Heurtel followed with 13 points and 7 assists, while Fabien Causeur poured in 12 points. With the game on the line, Rudy Fernandez hit a critical three-pointer that allowed Los Blancos to seal the outcome.

Panathinaikos OPAP Athens (1-2) is looking for its first road victory, which almost came in Round 3 against Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz on Tuesday. Ioannis Papapetrou led Panathinaikos with 22 points but his game-winning three-point try at the buzzer hit short. Daryl Macon added 13 points while Howard Sant-Roos had 9 for the Greens. These teams combine for 16 EuroLeague crowns, which says enough about this game’s tradition and importance.
