Euroleague final predictions

Euroleague basketball predictions included under each mini game preview.

There are so many storylines for the matchup between Fenerbahce and Real Madrid in the 2018 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Championship Game at Stark Arena in Belgrade, Serbia, on Sunday night. Fenerbahce looks to join the small club of teams to successfully defend the EuroLeague title. Madrid, the winningest team in EuroLeague history, looks to capture its 10th crown. A win would be magical for Serbian native Zeljko Obradovic; it would be his 10th individual EuroLeague title and complete a circle that started when he led a club from Belgrade, Partizan, to the championship in Istanbul. This season he tries to take a club from Istanbul to glory in Serbia. A Madrid win would cap an unreal year for 2017 EuroLeague MVP Sergio Llull, who missed nearly all of the season after suffering a torn ACL, but worked hard to come back in the playoffs and already played a big role in the semifinal. So much at stake between two championship-worthy teams.

Real Madrid vs Fenerbahce

The championship game is a matchup between two great teams with completely different styles. Madrid boasts the second-ranked offense in the league with 85.9 points per game, while Fenerbahce has the top-ranked defense with just 75.9 points allowed per game.

In essence, Madrid has more-impressive numbers because it plays at a faster pace with Luka Doncic, Sergio Llull and Facu Campazzo all pushing the ball. However, Fenerbahce is nearly as efficient on offense and can get up and down too with Brad Wanamaker, Ali Muhammed and Kostas Sloukas. Likewise, Fenerbahce can play lockdown defense with Jan Vesely and Jason Thompson in the middle, forward Nicolo Melli and Nikola Kalinic providing physicality and James Nunnally and Luigi Datome stifling opposing swingman.

On the other hand, Walter Tavares, Anthony Randolph and Gustavo Ayon give Madrid great size in the paint, Felipe Reyes adds the muscle and Rudy Fernandez and Jeffrey Taylor are players no attacker is pleased to see facing him. Both teams are deep; 11 different Madrid players scored in the semifinal and 11 different Fenerbahce players played at least eight minutes in their game. There are no favorites, just two competitors worthy of the title, but only one can be the 2018 EuroLeague champion.

Friday’s semi finals

Fenerbahce vs Zalgiris

Master meets apprentice when Fenerbahce Coach Zeljko Obradovic goes up against Zalgiris play-caller Sarunas Jasikevicius, who won the EuroLeague title as a player under Obradovic with Panathinaikos in 2009. The progression of dark horse Zalgiris to the Final Four has been one of the biggest surprises in the EuroLeague in recent seasons, but the Lithuanian champion absolutely deserves to be in Belgrade after an outstanding campaign which included regular season wins against top-four finishers Fenerbahce, CSKA, Panathinaikos and Olympiacos, and then a 3-1 playoffs victory against Olympiacos. Brandon Davies was named April’s MVP after an outstanding playoff series and his battle in the paint with Jan Vesely will be a key. Backcourt supremacy will also be crucial, with Kevin Pangos averaging 2.2 three-pointers and 6.0 assists per game while Kostas Sloukas set a new playoffs record with 36 assists in four games (9.0 per game).

Tip: Over 155.5 with bet365
(Price correct at 18/05/2018, 09:30UK)

CSKA Moscow vs Real Madrid

Expect a high-scoring and exciting shoot-out between this season’s two highest-scoring teams, with CSKA mustering 89.2 points per game and Madrid 85.7. Los Blancos’ challenge received an enormous boost in the playoffs as last season’s MVP Sergio Llull made a successful return from injury and Madrid will hope to further strengthen its backcourt by welcoming back Facundo Campazzo after he missed the playoffs with a knee injury. CSKA also has injury concerns with Nando De Colo and Kyle Hines targeting a Final Four return after spells on the sidelines. Madrid enjoyed a comfortable 82-69 victory when the teams met in Spain in Round 2, but CSKA – which will have Sergio Rodriguez and Othello Hunter going up after their former team – gained revenge with a 93-87 victory in Moscow in Round 21. Despite both teams being perennial title contenders, this is their first meaningful Final Four meeting this century.

Tip: 2 (+3.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Champions League tips tpday

Liverpool vs Real Madrid play in the Champions League final.

Who’s likely to start, who might be left out, and who is unavailable? We have brought together all the information available, so check out our Champions League final predictions today.

Saturday, 28/05/2022

  • Stade de France (80,698), Paris
  • Referee: Clement Turpin (France)
  • Real have won 13 Champions League titles (including the European Champions Cup) in 16 appearances in the final.
  • Liverpool have 6 Champions League titles (including the European Champions Cup) in 9 appearances in the final.

Road to the final

Liverpool wrapped up their on paper “tough group” (Atletico, Porto, AC Milan) with 6/6 wins. They then eliminated Inter, Benfica and Villarreal successively, winning on all 3 occasions and scoring 2+ goals on the road, while at home they only won against the Spaniards, drew with the Portuguese and were beaten by the Italians (0-2) in their only defeat in the competition this season.

Real Madrid cruised through the group stage (Inter, Sheriff, Shakhtar) with a 5-0-1 record. Their only loss was a shocking 1-2 defeat to Sheriff in Madrid. But Ancelotti’s team eliminated three championship contenders in… epic fashion. Against Paris Saint-Germain, they needed Benzema’s hat-trick in Madrid (3-1). The Frenchman scored 3 more goals in London against Chelsea (1-3) before his team beat the English side in extra time in the second leg. This was followed by two incredible games against Manchester City, losing 4-3 away, but scoring two goals after the 90 minutes in the replay and winning in extra time (3-1).

Liverpool vs Real Madrid possible line-ups

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konaté, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Keïta; Salah, Mané, Luis Díaz

Real Madrid: Courtois; Carvajal, Éder Militão, Alaba, Mendy; Kroos, Casemiro, Modrić; Valverde, Benzema, Vinícius Júnior

Liverpool vs Real Madrid prediction

The odds don’t show how tightly contested the final can be, with Liverpool given as favourites by all bookmakers, but Real are the side that has linked their name with European success. Liverpool may be more tired from their unsuccessful battle to win the Premier League, and in two finals this season they have drawn 0-0 with Chelsea and won the titles on penalties.

On the other hand, Real have had a chance to refuel over the last month and are expected to be fresh, so they offset the disadvantage of the Reds’ greater physicality.

Whew… tough to predict. But we’ll go with the “2-3 goals” bet as our main prediction, with the most likely score being 1-1. Finally, we think 2.37 on the Spanish side to win is too generous to pass up.

Football bullet Tip 1: 2-3 goals at 2.00

Football bullet Tip 2: Correct Score 1-1 at 7.00

Football bullet Tip 3: Real Madrid to win the Trophy at 2.37

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

Euroleague basketball predictions The Euroleague Final fot in the Final Four will be between Real Madrid and Anadolu Efes. Check our expert Euroleague predictions.

Our EuroLeague Final 4 tips appear under each mini game preview.

Real Madrid vs Efes Anadolu

  • Real Madrid has 26 wins against Efes, that has 13.

Anadolu Efes and Real Madrid will meet for the first time in the EuroLeague Championship Game, but they have played many important games recently, including the 2021 play-offs series, which Efes won and then went on to win the title in the Final Four a few weeks later.

In the current campaign, Real and Efes have met twice. Real trounced Efes 82-69 in their season opener, with newcomers Heurtel and Yabusele each scoring 18 points. Efes defeated Real 93-90 in Round 31 almost six months later, with Micic scoring 29 points.

The championship game in 2022 will be the latest chapter in this developing rivalry. It’s a defining moment for both, and only the victor will be fulfilled.

The final is completely unpredictable; we like Real’s victory at the odds of 2.00, but we will also predict two players’ special bets. Real Madrid’s Causeur proved in the semi-final that he is a big game player, and his job will be even more essential with Williams-Goss out, while Yabusele is testing his hand a lot, and the odds on the market of Over 1.5 three-point attempts are worth it from every angle!

basketball prediction Tip: Real Madrid win at 2.00

basketball prediction Tip 2: Causer Over 8.5 points at 1.90

basketball prediction Tip 3: Yabusele Over 1.5 three-point shot (scored) at 2.15

Our EuroLeague Final 4 tips appear under each mini game preview.

Barcelona vs Real Madrid

This season, Barcelona was one of the stronger rebounding teams in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, but it couldn’t match Real Madrid’s dominance on the boards.

Sarunas Jasikevicius’ team has conceded the fewest rebounds in the league this season, 31.2 per game, and outrebounded opponents by 3.2 per game. It had the third-most defensive rebounds (24.3 per game) and the fourth-most total rebounds (34.4 rpg.).

Real’s resurgent supremacy elevated it to a new level. Los Blancos dominated the league in rebounds (38.3 per game), defence boards (26.8 per game), and offensive boards (11.6 per game). It gave up the fewest rebounds (31.7 per game) and outrebounded opponents by an incredible 6.6 per game.

When Real met Barcelona this season, such was not the case. When the two teams played in Round 14, Barcelona won 36-29. After that, Barca won the battle of the boards 39-36 in Round 26. In El Clasico this season, Barcelona averaged 5 more boards per game than their opponents.

Matching those great defensive efforts in the semifinals could be the difference between Barcelona and the EuroLeague’s top rebounding club.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-3.5) at 1.90

Olympiacos vs Efes

Several figures stand out from Olympiacos and Efes’s prior games this season that could be worth watching in their semifinal clash.

Even though the teams won a game each, there was little else that was equal. Efes had 18 turnovers in each game, whilst the Reds had 26. Efes not only had more possessions, but they also shot substantially better, hitting 62.0%of their two-point attempts. Both teams tried 71 twos, but Olympiacos shot 53.5%, which was 6 less. Efes also had the best three-point shooting squad, making 20 of them (33.9%). The Reds converted 17 attempts at 30.9%.

Each game was won by the club that won the battle of the boards, with Olympiacos gathering 6 more rebounds across the two games. Even in the Round 26 game, which Efes lost, it outscored Olympiacos 90-105 in the performance index rating.

Olympiacos did get to the foul line more frequently, even if it did not shoot as well. The Reds converted 29 of 36 foul shots (80.6%), while Efes converted 25 of 27. (92.6%). Efes also had a superior season free-throw shooting percentage (82.1 percent -75.8%). However, if Olympiacos continues to draw a lot of fouls and puts Efes in foul trouble, that might be a game changer.
