Khimki – Villeurbanne

After climbing into the playoff zone last week, eighth-place Khimki needs to protect its home floor to remain there against a reeling ASVEL squad that is only two wins back and can ill-afford another loss if it is to stay in the playoff hunt. While Khimki is all smiles after winning back-to-back games for the first time since November, the French champs have lost eight of their last nine games.

When it comes to Khimki, most think about offense first. However, when its defense is on, good things happen. Khimki is 8-1 this season when it has held opponents below 80 points. Considering that ASVEL averages just 74.1 points per game, which is third-lowest in the league, a strong defensive effort may be the safest way to extend the winning streak and remain in the playoff zone.

No team shoots as many three-pointers as Khimki (28.9 attempts per game) and ASVEL has allowed opponents to make 41.2% of their threes, which is second-highest in the competition. ASVEL will need its perimeter defenders at their best to deny any open shots for the Khimki shooters. Taking Khimki out of its comfort zone and making it work harder for shots could be the key to victory.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 164.5 at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 28/02/2020, 09:25 CET, subject to change)

Zagiris – Milano

Zalgiris is in its best form this season; it has won seven of its last 10 EuroLeague games and comes off a brilliant road win at KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz. Milan is one a three-game losing streak and only has one victory in its last seven games. Zach LeDay (11.0 ppg.), Lukas Lekavicius (11.0 ppg.) and Jock Landale (10.4 ppg.) are leading Zalgiris in scoring. Sergio Rodriguez (13.0 ppg., 5.4 apg.), Vladimir Micov (11.7 ppg.) and Luis Scola (9.9 ppg.) are Milan’s top scorers.

Zalgiris limited Baskonia to just 60 points – and only 25 of those came after the break. It also heavily outrebounded its opponent 22-43, pulling down 17 offensive boards and only allowing Baskonia 6. If Zalgiris is able to keep playing defense at this level – Baskonia only made 25% of its three-point shots, it will keep adding wins.

Milan allows opponents to take more defensive rebounds (25.3 rpg.) than any other team in the competition and is 17th in offensive boards (9.2 orpg.). A better performance under the boards will be needed against Zalgiris, which comes off its best rebounding game of the season. On offense, Sergio Rodriguez, Luis Scola and Nemanja Nedovic must make the difference in half-court situations.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+6.0) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 28/02/2020, 09:25 CET, subject to change)

Valencia – Fenerbahce

This will be a key game in the battle to reach the EuroLeague playoffs. Valencia has only won one of its last four home games. After winning six out of seven games, Fenerbahce registered consecutive losses. Both teams need to bounce back quickly to keep pace in the playoff race. Bojan Dubljevic (14.4 ppg., 7.0 rpg.), Mike Tobey (8.4 ppg.) and Fernando San Emeterio (7.8 ppg.) are leading Valencia right now. Nando De Colo (16.8 ppg.) returns to Valencia as Fenerbahce’s top scorer, followed by Kostas Sloukas (11.5 ppg.) and Derrick Williams (11.0 ppg.).

Valencia has allowed its opponents to score 81.4 points per game at La Fonteta, so a major step forward on defense is needed. Opponents make 55.4% of their two-point shots and 39.4% of their attempts from downtown against Valencia. Coach Ponsarnau’s men must reach out on defense, collapse the paint with Maurice Ndour, Bojan Dubljevic and Mike Tobey, and make the most out of pick-and-roll situations with Quino Colom and its mobile big men.

Everything went wrong for Fenerbahce last week against Real when it allowed its opponent to dish 30 assists and was outrebounded 20-38. Fenerbahce only had 11 assists, tying its season low. Being more focused and intense on defense will lead Fenerbahce to better ball circulation. With so much talent everywhere, if Fenerbahce plays strong defense, the offense will eventually come.

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

Real Madrid: Courtois; Valverde, Ramos, Militao, Nacho; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric; Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius

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
