Euroleague Preview & Tips – Round 4 – Playing non-stop



euroleague basketball

Euroleague basketball predictions included under each game.

Just 48 hours after their previous Turkish Airlines EuroLeague games, the teams are back for Round 4. Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens hosts Fenerbahce Dogus Istanbul in a repeat of last season’s playoffs, which saw Fenerbahce make history by sweeping the series despite not having home-court advantage. It will be interesting for forward Jonah Bolden when he visits Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade with Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv; Bolden was originally signed to play for Zvezda this season. And in an All-Spanish League contest, Valencia Basket faces Unicaja Malaga in a repeat of last season’s 7DAYS EuroCup Finals.

Friday’s matches

Anadolu Efes Istanbul vs. CSKA Moscow

Winless Efes (0-3) won’t have it easy on Friday against CSKA (2-1), though the home team’s chances could be improved if some of their injured players return to boost the rotation. One determined CSKA player to succeed is former MVP Nando De Colo, who was ejected from the team’s victory on Wednesday after less than 11 minutes of playing time. CSKA has won four straight and eight of nine against Efes.

Tip: 1 (+6.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Brose Bamberg vs. Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz

Two teams with different emotional states duel in this clash. Brose (1-2) comes off an uplifting road win at Unicaja, while Baskonia (0-3) lost its home opener after which head coach Pablo Prigioni resigned. Bamberg will hope to have point guard Nikos Zisis and forward Dorell Wright in uniform for the game; Zisis was out Wednesday due to illness, while Wright signed on Wednesday and is set to make his EuroLeague debut.

Tip: Over 157.0 at 1.90 with bet365

Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens vs. Fenerbahce Dogus Istanbul

This game is a repeat from last season’s playoffs, which Fenerbahce (2-1) swept 3-0. The champs are in good spirits after getting strong production from four of their newcomers in Wednesday’s home opener. Panathinaikos (1-2) is eager to return home after losing both of its road games this season. The Greens have struggled with shooting so far this season and will need to have their rhythm offensively to have a good chance on Friday.

Tip: 1 (-1.5) at 1.95 with bet365

Valencia Basket vs. Unicaja Malaga

The last game to tip off in Round 4 is an all-Spanish League affair and a rematch of last season’s 7DAYS EuroCup Finals. Valencia (2-1) is undefeated in games in Spain thus far with a home win and a road win at Baskonia. Unicaja (1-2) has been involved in three close games, but has only one win to show for it. One interesting matchup will be former Valencia guard Nemanja Nedovic, who scored a career-best 26 points on Wednesday, facing red-hot Erick Green.

Tip: 2 (+7.0) at 1.90 with bet365

Thursday’s matches

Crvena Zvezda vs. Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv

Action opens in the Serbian capital and the site of the 2018 Final Four, which is the same city where Maccabi (2-1) won its first title in 1977. The visitors will try to bounce back from their first loss, while Zvezda (1-2) looks to make the most of its home-court advantage. While Maccabi boasts the second-best defense in the competition this season with just 69.3 points allowed per game, Zvezda has five players averaging double figures in scoring, including former Maccabi guard and one-time Alphonso Ford Top Scorer Trophy winner Taylor Rochestie.

Tip: 2 (+3.0) at 1.90 with bet365

Olympiacos Piraeus vs. Khimki Moscow Region

Only one of these teams will survive Round 4 with a perfect record. Olympiacos (3-0) has marched to the top of the standings thanks to the stingiest defense in the competition (69.0 points allowed per game), while Khimki (3-0) has enjoyed three home games to start the season and Alexey Shved leading the charge on the court. The game marks the return of Coach Georgios Bartzokas, who led the Reds to the 2013 EuroLeague title, to Peace and Friendship Stadium.

Tip: Under 150.0 at 1.91 with bet365

Zalgiris Kaunas vs. Real Madrid

This is a clash of confident teams coming off big wins. Zalgiris (2-1) captured a road win in Barcelona thanks to stellar play by point guards Vasilije Micic and Kevin Pangos, while Madrid (3-0) rode another fantastic game by league-leading scorer Luka Doncic to victory. Madrid has won eight straight against Zalgiris and 15 of their 16 meeting this century, but Paulius Jankunas and co. may be ready to turn that page.

Tip: 1 (+4.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Olimpia Milan vs. FC Barcelona Lassa

Two teams eager to snap losing slides meet in the fashion capital. Milan (0-3) has looked great at times and took the former champs to overtime in its most-recent home game, but still has nothing to show for it. Barcelona (1-2) has pushed the ball nicely with its point guard tandem and weapons inside, but has yet to win on the road.

Tip: Over 163.5 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 Final, Predictions



Euroleague FInal Four 2022

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.
