Euroleague Preview & Tips – Round 21 – The last third of the way



euroleague basketball

Euroleague basketball predictions included under each mini game preview.

Round 21 tips off with a clash of titans between 2016 EuroLeague champion CSKA Moscow and 2015 winner Real Madrid. Two hours later, the 2017 finalists, Olympiacos Piraeus and Fenerbahce Dogus Istanbul will duel in Greece. On Friday, Khimki Moscow Region point guard Stefan Markovic will welcome his former team, Unicaja Malaga, to the Russian capital.

Friday’s matches

Khimki Moscow vs Unicaja Malaga

Khimki (11-9) welcomes Unicaja (8-12) for a game with major potential ramifications for the playoffs picture. The Russian team has been wildly unpredictable in recent weeks, especially at home with its last four games resulting in blowout wins by 28 and 18 points and heavy losses by 14 points and 17 points. Attempting to exploit that vulnerability is a Unicaja team full of frustration after losing three of its last five games by just 2 points, all with the outcome decided on the game’s final play. Unicaja is the league’s second-best offensive rebounding team, averaging 12.8 per game, largely thanks to a man who will be on familiar territory: ex-Khimki center James Augustine.

Tip: Over 159.0 at 1.90 with bet365

Brose Bamberg vs Panathinaikos

Brose (7-13) will look to give its playoffs ambitions fresh life against a Panathinaikos (13-7) team that has been fraying its fans’ nerves perhaps more than any other team: no less than 10 of the Greens’ games have been settled by 6 points or fewer. Panathinaikos ranks third in the competition in steals with 6.8 per game, while Brose is a long way last in that category with just 4.7 per game. The German team also trails the competition in shots blocked, with just 1.7 rejections per game compared to Panathinaikos’s average of 2.9.

Tip: Winning Margin 3-way Any Other (any team to win 1-5 points) at 2.75 with bet365

Baskonia vs Crvena Zvezda

Two teams with serious aspirations of pushing towards the top half close the week with a must-win battle in Vitoria. Baskonia (9-11) has won once and lost twice on the final buzzer in the last three weeks, while Zvezda (8-12) will have renewed confidence after ending a three-game losing streak with last week’s win over Olympiacos. Baskonia is the league’s third-best shot-blocking team with an average of 3.4 rejections, but Zvezda often seeks success further away from the rim, attempting the third-highest number of three-point shots in the competition (25.2 per game). Expect maximum intensity in a game with playoffs-like significance.

Tip: 1 (-8.0) at 1.90 with bet365

Thursday’s matches

CSKA Moscow vs Real Madrid

The week tips off in style as league-leading CSKA (16-4) hosts a Madrid (13-7) team that has won eight of its last nine games and is eager to maintain a place in the top four. CSKA will want revenge after a heavy Round 2 loss in the Spanish capital and has Leo Westermann back from injury to bolster a backcourt also containing ex-Madrid star Sergio Rodriguez. The visitors will look to use the size of in-form Walter Tavares to dominate the paint against another player going up against his old team, Othello Hunter. Los Blancos expect to also welcome former All-EuroLeague big man Anthony Randolph back after more than two months. It’s a meeting between the league’s two highest-scoring teams (CSKA 88.6 points per game; Madrid 84.1 ppg.), so expect fireworks!

Tip: Over 170.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Anadolu Efes vs Valencia

A basement battle gives injury-plagued Valencia (7-13) – which lost San Van Rossom in last week’s win over Khimki – another chance to boost its faint playoffs hopes with a trip to face last-placed Efes (5-15). Van Rossom joins fellow point men Antoine Diot and Guillem Vives on the sidelines, but the Spanish team has still managed to win four of its last six games to revive its season. Efes has not lost by more than 5 points at home since Round 4, so Valencia certainly won’t have it easy, and the home team will look to profit from its offensive rebounding abilities (12.6 per game, third-best in the league).

Tip: 1 (-7.0) at 1.90 with bet365

Barcelona vs Olimpia Milan

An early tip-off in Barcelona will see the hosts (7-13) attempt to make a fast start against a Milan team (6-14) that has been offensively potent in recent weeks, scoring at least 80 points in each of its last six games and averaging 89.2 points during that period. Indeed, three of Milan’s last four games have seen at least one team reach triple figures. That will suit Barcelona’s fast-paced offense, which leads the league in assists with an average of 20.9 per game. So everything is pointing towards a high-scoring shoot-out in a game that has to be won to preserve even faint hopes of joining the playoffs race.

Tip: 1 (-8.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Zalgiris vs Maccabi Tel Aviv

After gaining its first road win in six attempts last week, Maccabi (11-9) will now try to double up and join Zalgiris on 12 wins for the season. Zalgiris would like to win by at least 8 points to ensure control of the head-to-head tiebreaker between the teams. Maccabi again showcased its open style by scoring 31 two-pointers – the fifth-highest of the season – in last week’s win at Milan, with many of those coming in fastbreak or transition situations. Zalgiris has won six straight at home and boasts much more accurate shooting than Maccabi across the board, making 55% of two-pointers, 40% of triples and 78.5% of free throws against the Israeli team’s respective figures of 51.2%, 36.6% and 69.7%.

Tip: Under 162.0 at 1.90 with bet365

Olympiacos vs Fenerbahce

A hotly-anticipated rematch of last season’s championship game carries huge significance for Olympiacos (13-7), which has dropped down the standings with a run of four consecutive road defeats. But the Reds have still excelled at home with five straight victories in Piraeus, so Fenerbahce (14-6) faces a major challenge to extend its winning run to six games. It is a meeting between the league’s top two defenses, with Fenerbahce allowing 72.5 points per game and Olympiacos only fractionally worse with 73.3 ppg conceded. But Olympiacos must find a way to stop red-hot Brad Wanamaker, the league’s MVP for the last two rounds.

Tip: Under 146.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Liverpool vs Real Madrid Prediction, Injuries, Suspensions and Possible Line-ups



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 Final 4, Semifinals, Predictions



Euroleague FInal Four 2022

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.
