Khimki – ALBA Berlin

Khimki Moscow Region will look to keep its momentum going and put together back-to-back wins for the first time this season when it hosts ALBA Berlin on Friday. Khimki defeated Real Madrid on Tuesday to snap a 17-game losing streak and improve to 3-23. ALBA faltered in the fourth quarter in losing at Zenit St Petersburg on Tuesday. It was the German champs’ third straight loss on the road. ALBA is 4-9 in road games this season.

It all starts with defense for Khimki. With Alexey Shved, Errick McCollum and Jordan Mickey, all know that Khimki can score in bunches. However, it has also allowed the most points in the league (90.5 ppg.) by far; ALBA is second on that list with 82.7. In Khimki’s three wins, the opponents have averaged only 79.0 points. Keeping ALBA below 80 may be the key for the hosts.

  • Devin Booker has missed the last six games.
  • Stefan Jovic has not played in the last five games.
  • Janis Timma did not play in the last two games.
  • Khimki parted ways with Dairis Bertans.

For a team with many great three-point shooters, ALBA’s 35.8% accuracy for the season is surprisingly low. A healthy Marcus Eriksson and Niels Giffey should help raise that number. Khimki has allowed its opponents to make a league-best 43.3% on threes and if ALBA can take advantage and light up the scoreboard from downtown, it would be in a better spot to challenge for a road win in Moscow.

  • Jayson Granger is out after having hand surgery.
  • Louis Olinde is expected to miss several weeks after injuring his hand ahead of Round 25.

Zalgiris – Milano

Two teams coming off opposite experiences earlier this week will square off Friday as Zalgiris Kaunas (15-12) welcomes AX Armani Exchange Milan (17-10) for Round 28. After a losing skid, Zalgiris was back to winning on Tuesday against ASVEL, 85-75. On the other hand, Milan saw its incipient winning streak snapped at home against Fenerbahce, 92-100. Milan plays to stay among the top four teams in the league, while Zalgiris sits at ninth place and could get into playoffs position with a win.

Facing a Milan offense that ranks third in scoring (82.0 ppg.), Zalgiris will have to power up its defense, especially on the perimeter, where the visitors own the league’s best three-point proficiency (42.5%). Zalgiris is also the worst team in blocks per game (1.1), so defense in the paint against Milan’s big men will also be paramount. Zalgiris boasts solid stats across a wide range of categories, all of which might be needed to hold serve at home against a dangerous visitor.

Milan suffered a tough loss at home, but on paper has been a bit more consistent than Zalgiris. Since the hosts lead the league from the free-throw line (85.5%), the fewer trips they take to that spot, the better for Milan. However, the PIR averages for both teams stay very close to each other (87.8 to 89.9) so it seems that it will all come down to details in this battle with high stakes.

  • Zach LeDay has missed the last four games with an injury.
  • Malcolm Delaney did not play in Round 27.

Olympiacos – Crvena Zvezda

One team will end an eight-game losing streak on Friday as Olympiacos Piraeus (11-16) hosts Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (7-20) for Round 28. The Reds are currently on a bad streak that started in Round 20 and continued earlier this week with a tough, 91-66 defeat at Baskonia. Already-eliminated Zvezda is in the same situation. They have not won since Round 19 and fell earlier this week at home against Bayern by a close 76-78. This game will be the reprieve that one of these teams need.

If Olympiacos wants to get back in the playoffs race, it needs to win ASAP, as there will not be many more chances to do so on its home floor. Also, Zvezda has the worst scoring (73.5 ppg.) and assists (14.1 apg.) in the league, so solid defense should let the Reds run a bit on offense to try to get easier buckets. The hosts will have to overcome some key absences, and if the game gets as close as their previous one, details could be key, including their 77.4% from the stripe, seventh worst in the league, against Zvezda’s fourth-best 82.3%.

  • Kostas Papanikolaou has missed Olympiacos’s last 12 games.
  • Georgios Printezis did not play in Round 27.
  • Hassan Martin is sidelined with a knee injury.

The guests are in a bad spot, no question. With just seven more possible wins, the best they could so this season is a 14-20, which means they are mathematically out of the playoffs. However, this game could be a good chance for Zvezda to get back on the winning track and try to get some team chemistry back after all the COVID issues it has suffered the last weeks. Olympiacos will be playing for its survival in this game, but with nothing to lose, Zvezda could regroup and play without fear to try to play spoiler and boost morale for the rest of the season.

  • Landry Nnoko, Duop Reath and Quino Colom all missed the last four games because of COVID-19.

( Euroleague predictions with correct price at 05/03/2021, 09:00 CET. Odds subject to change )

Villeurbanne – Fenerbahce

LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne (12-15) comes off a loss after six consecutive victories and hopes to bounce back at home. Norris Cole (13.8 ppg.), David Lighty (11.7 ppg.) and Moustapha Fall (9.4 ppg., 5.6 rpg.) have been its main pillars throughout the season. Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul (16-11), winner of 11 out of 12 games, wants to keep rising toward the playoffs. Its led by Jan Vesely (13.2 ppg., 5.5 rpg.), Nando De Colo (15.1 ppg., 4.1 apg.) and Marko Guduric (11.8 ppg., 3.2 apg.).

ASVEL made 46.9% of its three-point shots (54-of-115) during its six-game winning streak. It only hit 8-of-25 attempts from downtown (32%) in its Round 27 loss against Zalgiris Kaunas. That is, more three-point shots with a worse percentage. It is important for ASVEL to find balance on offense, feeding Fall and Guerschon Yabusele for one-on-one chances to open the floor for the team’s many shooters, especially William Howard (55.1% 3FG). On defense, preventing De Colo from running the show should be critical, too.

  • Derrick Walton has been sidelined for several weeks with a hip injury.
  • Antoine Diot did not play in the last two games.

Fenerbahce has been improving its shooting percentages throughout the season, and it now ranks third from downtown (40.6% 3FG) and from the free throw line (83.8%), and second inside the arc (57.0% 2FG). Being able to keep those solid shooting percentages is critical against a physical team like ASVEL. Fenerbahce had 22 assists and just 10 turnovers against AX Armani Exchange Milan in Round 27. Jan Vesely had 8 of those assists, and running its offense through its star center should be a plus again for the Turkish powerhouse.

  • Edgaras Ulanovas missed Round 27 game after being the only Fenerbahce player to start in each of the first 26.

basketball prediction Tip: Winning Margin 3-way Any Other (1-5 points) at 2.75 with bet365
( Euroleague predictions with correct price at 05/03/2021, 09:00 CET. Odds subject to change )

Barcelona – Baskonia

C Barcelona (19-8) leads the standings and comes off a brilliant road win against Panathinaikos OPAP Athens. Nikola Mirotic (16.6 ppg., 6.0 rpg.), Cory Higgins (12.9 ppg.) and Brandon Davies (12.1 ppg.) are leading the team so far this season. TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz (14-13) is on a five-game winning streak, and each of its last four victories was by at least 20 points. Alec Peters (12.0 ppg.) is Baskonia’s top scorer, followed by Rokas Giedraitis (11.8 ppg.) and Achille Polonara (11.3 ppg.).

Barcelona is shooting the ball very well this season (55.8% 2FG, 40.6% 3FG) but leads the 2020-21 EuroLeague in turnovers (14.9 per game). Cutting those turnovers would make Barcelona even more competitive. It all starts with defense for head coach Sarunas Jasikevicius, and Barcelona allows opponents to shoot with a league-low 48.1% inside the arc and just 34.4% from downtown, while ranking second in defensive rebounds (24.1 drpg.). On defense, preventing Luca Vildoza and Pierria Henry from dominating the game tempo should be Barcelona’s main priority.

Baskonia has limited all opponents to less than 70 points in its current five-game winning streak. Those opponents combined had 85-for-187 two-point shooting (45.5%), which speaks volumes about Baskonia’s paint protection. At the same time, Baskonia has been really effective inside the arc, hitting 114 of 191 two-pointers (59.7%). If Baskonia sticks to those percentages at both ends and manages to prevent Abrines, Higgins and Kuric from dynamiting the game from the three-point line, it should have good chances 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 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.
