Zenit – Olympiacos

Zenit St Petersburg returns to the competition after missing four rounds and hopes to remain undefeated. Kevin Pangos (19.0 ppg.), KC Rivers (12.5 ppg.) and Alex Poythress (11.5 ppg.) have been its pillars until now. Olympiacos Piraeus has lost its last two games and is looking for its second road win of the season. Georgios Printezis (9.8 ppg.) has been its top scorer until now, followed by Hassan Martin (9.2 ppg.) and Aaron Harrison (8.8 ppg.). Expect an interesting tactical showdown at Sibur Arena.

First and foremost, Zenit must play with the right rhythm, setting up its half-court offense to make the most out of Pangos’s pick-and-roll skills. Zenit relies on Ponitka and Poythress to make the difference at forward due to their versatility, athleticism and intensity. Olympiacos has a well-balanced offense with 10 players averaging more than 5 points. Identifying the players finding advantages and reacting to stop them on defense, reading the game the right way as a team, is very important for the hosts.

Olympiacos is not rebounding well under its rim, ranking 15th in defensive boards (21.8 drpg.) while allowing opponents 9.7 more rebounds on average. Octavius Ellis and Martin may have a size advantage if Arturas Gudaitis remains sidelined. Olympiacos relies on Kostas Sloukas and Vassilis Spanoulis to dictate the game tempo, allowing Kostas Papanikolaou, Shaquielle McKissic and Ellis to run in transition. Charles Jenkins may have a critical role on defense as Zenit runs its offense through Pangos.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+3.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Efes – Maccabi

Anadolu Efes Istanbul comes off a big road win against Olympiacos Piraeus. Shane Larkin returned and scored 15 points in 20 minutes. Vasilije Micic shined with 20 points and Rodrigue Beaubois also had 15 for the Turkish powerhouse. Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv looks for its second road victory. Scottie Wilbekin (18 ppg.) has been Maccabi’s top scorer until now, followed by Ante Zizic (11.5 ppg.) and Tyler Dorsey (10.7 ppg.). Expect a great showdown between two EuroLeague powerhouses eager to climb in the standings.

Everything changes for Efes with Larkin back in action: its offense is more unpredictable and he has made his backcourt mates better: Micic and Beaubois each had season-highs in scoring last week. Stopping Zizic and Hunter in the paint is mandatory, but Efes relies on Bryant Dunston, Chris Singleton and Tibor Pleiss to do so. Krunoslav Simon is in great shape and must use his experience and all-around scoring skills against Tyler Dorsey and Elijah Bryant. As always, Efes must play up-tempo and get its many scorers involved.

Despite the loss, Maccabi had 21 offensive rebounds against Fenerbahce – 1 shy of its club record. Having that blue-collar mentality against an aggressive team like Efes is mandatory, as the Turkish powerhouse needs to rebound well on defense to get its transition game going. Maccabi only made 5 of 26 shots from downtown, so it needs to find good shots for its best shooters: Wilbekin, Dorsey, Bryant and Angelo Caloiaro. Chris Jones may see extended playing time to guard Micic in what is one of the keys to this game.

ALBA Berlin – Barcelona

ALBA Berlin looks for its first home win this season. Former Barcelona guard Marcus Eriksson leads ALBA in scoring (14.8 ppg.), followed by Simone Fontecchio (12.3 ppg.) and Peyton Siva (8.5 ppg.). FC Barcelona is on a four-game winning streak and comes off a huge come-from-behind win in Vitoria-Gasteiz. Nikola Mirotic (16.3 ppg., 7.0 rpg.), Brandon Davies (13.8 ppg.) and Cory Higgins (10.7 ppg.) have been its pillars this season. Expect a fun-to-watch, exciting showdown at Mercedes-Benz Arena.

ALBA relies on Peyton Siva to dictate the game tempo; ALBA is at its best when it is able to run the floor and get shooters like Eriksson, Neils Giffey and Fontecchio involved. The hosts need to prevent Davies and Mirotic from scoring around the basket and need Ben Lammers, Sikma and Tim Schneider to protect the paint. Maodo Lo has to be ready for a scoring battle against Abrines in one of the intriguing matchups in this game. If ALBA rebounds well under its rim and is able to run, it should have a better chance to win.

It all starts from defense when it comes to Sarunas Jasikevicius’s teams. Barcelona is allowing only 73.0 points per game with its opponents making just 49.8% of shots inside the arc and 32.7% from downtown. Keeping that defensive focus is critical against a defensive-minded team. On offense, Mirotic must lead the way, but Barcelona has enough weapons to choose from. Calathes and Thomas Heurtel must make sure that three-point bombers Abrines, Kyle Kuric and Higgins find open shots. If they do, any team is in trouble against Barcelona.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (+11.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 05/11/2020, 10:30 CET, subject to change)

Baskonia – Villeurbanne

In a clash of teams longing for a win, TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz hosts LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne on Thursday night. Baskonia comes off a tough 71-72 loss against FC Barcelona. It was the team’s lowest-scoring output of the season. ASVEL returns to action last week after being idle for three rounds due to COVID-19 infections in the team. Despite leading after three quarters, it fell 74-83 to Zalgiris Kaunas.

Baskonia has allowed the second-fewest points (71.3 ppg.) in the EuroLeague this season and ASVEL is bottom of the scoring charts with 70.0 points per game. If Baskonia’s defense is up to par, the task will be on the offensive end, where the team’s 47.6% two-point shooting is third-lowest in the competition. It’s never easy to attack the ASVEL paint when the 2.18-meter Moustapha Fall is there, but if anyone has the answer it may be Baskonia with the 2.21-meter Youssoupha Fall and starting center Tonye Jekiri who started for ASVEL last season.

ASVEL has plenty of power inside, but its perimeter players have not taken advantage; the team is last in the league in three-point accuracy (31.0%) and its 7.3 triples made per game are second-fewest. It will be important for the likes of David Lighty, Amine Noua and Matthew Strazel to connect from behind the arc to boost ASVEL’s chances.

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
