Zenit – Barcelona (1-2)

Zenit upset Barca in Spain in Game 1 by a narrow 74-76 and had a late shot attempt to win Game 2, as well. When that shot missed, however, the game went to overtime and Barcelona got its first win of the series, 81-78. In Russia for Game 3, Barca kept it going with a 70-78 decision. Zenit got as close as a point from the lead in the last quarter, but Brandon Davies stepped up once again to put the guests in a safe place.

Do-or-die drama comes to this best-of-five series as Zenit St Petersburg needs to win to survive when it hosts Game 4 against FC Barcelona on Friday. After having dropped the home opener to Zenit, the visitors managed to turn the series around to lead 1-2 with consecutive victories, the last on Wednesday in St Petersburg to flip home-court advantage for the second time in the series. But Barca might not need that extra home game as a victory on Friday would its Final Four ticket. If Zenit succeeds in getting the first home playoff win in club history, however, the series will move back to Barcelona for a decisive Game 5 next Tuesday.

Zenit is between a rock and a hard place. A loss would make the Russian team step down. The series has been as close as they come, and playing at home with fans Zenit will do it all to stretch its dream at least for one more game. These are the EuroLeague’s two best defenses going against each other, but in part due to injuries, Zenit has struggled a bit under the boards, so keeping players like Brandon Davies and Pau Gasol in check there could give the hosts the extra oomph needed to even the series. At this point, both teams know each other well, so Zenit will put all its heart on the court to take the series to a fifth and final game.

After struggling in the series opener, Barcelona has regrouped and managed to win two games in a row, even if neither was the least bit easy. The Catalan team leads all playoff teams in accuracy from beyond the arc, at 52.5%, and that is now proving to be crucial in pulling out these narrow wins. Barcelona’s main focus will be stopping Kevin Pangos and Baron while also concentrating on making the best defense in the league keep working at full throttle. One more win and Barca will reach its first Final Four since 2014.

Bayern – Milano (1-2)

FC Bayern Munich hopes to protect its home court once more this season when it hosts AX Armani Exchange Milan in Game 4 of their best-of-five playoff series on Friday. Bayern made history with an 85-79 win in Game 3, the first-ever EuroLeague Playoffs victory for any German club, cutting Milan’s series lead to 2-1. On Friday, again at the Audi Dome, Bayern will continue its quest to become the first team to win a EuroLeague Playoff series after trailing 0-2. Milan will look to bounce back as it aims to return to the Final four for the first time in 29 years.

Bayern dominated on the glass in Game 3, outrebounding the visitors 37-29, and did a great job moving the ball with 18 assists. Bayern needs to keep playing to its strengths. No team averages more two-point attempts this season than Bayern (41.6 per game), and that’s what the team did on Wednesday when it attempted 40 two-point shots and only 13 triples. It is a recipe that has worked for Bayern this entire season, so expect the hosts to apply it again on Friday.

Milan is the EuroLeague’s best team this season at taking care of basketball, averaging a league-low 10.8 turnovers per game. Milan was even better with 9.0 per game in the first two games of the series and had just 11 turnovers in Game 3. However, Milan dished just 11 assists on Wednesday and averages 11.3 for the series. In a hard-fought series, Milan has struggled with its shooting (49.6% 2FG and 31.0% 3FG), and until the shots start falling more consistently, Milan must stay low on turnovers to have a chance to win.

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

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

Euroleague basketball predictions The Euroleague Final 4 is here! Check the semifinals previews and our expert Euroleague predictions.

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.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 157.5 at 1.90
