Euroleague Preview & Tips

With the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague standings starting to take shape, Round 6 will see the continent’s finest battling to improve their positions with a series of tantalising match-ups including the reigning champion facing an age-old challenger at home.

Thursday’s action tips off in Russia, where Unics Kazan (1-4) will look for its first home victory against visiting Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (2-3). Unics ranks third in offensive rebounding (13.8 per game), but will want to improve its offensive fluidity after averaging a league-low 14.8 assists so far. Zvezda has the second-best defense with just 72.2 points allowed per game, but is also the lowest in scoring, with an average of just 70.6 points.

Darussafaka Dogus (3-2) is another team in search of a first home win as it welcomes Brose Bamberg (2-3) to Istanbul. The hosts will want to turn around their league-worst rebounding numbers (27.4 per game) but maintain the defensive hustle that has them making the second-most steals, 8.6 per game. All five of visiting Brose Bamberg games so far have been settled by four points or less, thanks in part to the league’s third-best three-point shooting conversion rate (39.8%). But the German team is ranked dead last in offensive rebounds (7.4 per game).

In the Game of the Week, Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens (3-2) will attempt to use its status as the league’s best shot-blocking team (4.8 per game) to stem the flood of offense from visiting Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv (2-3), which ranks fourth in scoring, averaging 86.6 points thanks to the league’s second-best true shooting conversion rate (53.3%). Panathinaikos will also seek to maintain the ball-handling efficiency that has it committing just 9.8 turnovers per game, the lowest rate in the league.

Two teams whose fortunes have been moving in different directions meet as EA7 Emporio Armani Milan (2-3) looks to end a run of three straight losses against visiting hosts Anadolu Efes Istanbul (2-3), which has won its last two. Despite its recent defeats, Milan has suffered no problems on offense, ranking second in scoring with an average of 90.6 points per game, while Efes has based its improvement on dominating the boards, ranking joint-second in total rebounds (38.8 per game) and first in offensive rebounds (15.8 per game).

Finally on Thursday, FC Barcelona Lassa (3-2) faces visiting Zalgiris Kaunas (1-4) and the coach who helped the hosts win their first EuroLeague title, Sarunas Jasikevicius. Barcelona is the second-lowest scoring team in the league with 72.6 points per game, with Zalgiris only slightly better at 75.2 on average. But Barcelona also has the top overall defense, allowing just 71 points on average, partly thanks to topping the league with a league-best 9.2 steals per game. Zalgiris, meanwhile, ranks joint-second in rebounds, with 38.8 per game, but has committed more turnovers than anyone else (15.8).

On Friday, Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul (0-5) will aim for its first victory of the season with a visit from OIympiacos Piraeus (3-2). Allowing a league-high 97 points per game, Galatasaray’s need for defensive improvement is paramount, and the Turkish team will also have to contend with a powerful Olympiacos team which leads the league in rebounds (39.8 per game) – a category in which the host ranks next-to-last (29.8).

A highlight of this round comes in Moscow, where the last two EuroLeague champions and the two top-rated teams so far this season, CSKA Moscow (5-0) and Real Madrid (4-1), resume their 53-year-old rivalry. Real Madrid boasts the highest team performance index rating with an average of 104.6 per game, closely followed by unbeaten champion CSKA at 103 per game. CSKA is also the league’s leading scorer, averaging 92.4 points, and has dished more assists than any other team (21.4). Madrid is the league’s most accurate two-point shooting team, converting 58.4%, and ranks second in defensive rebounding (27).

And finally, a repeat of last season’s semi-final sees Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz (3-2) welcome Fenerbahce Istanbul (4-1). Turnovers could prove crucial, with Baskonia ranked second-worst in that category after conceding an average of 15, while Fenerbahce are second-best with 11.4 per game. And there’s a similar disparity in free-throw effectiveness: the visitor ranks second after converting 83.7% of its tries, and Baskonia are next-to-last after connecting on just 68.6% of foul shots.

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 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
