Fenerbahce – Khimki

Two teams coming off Round 6 wins and looking to turn them into winning streaks meet when Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul hosts Khimki Moscow Region. Fenerbahce bested Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv 65-75 last week behind Ali Muhammed, who went off for 17 points on 5-of-6 three-point shooting off the bench. Khimki topped Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade 83-77 with the backcourt duo of Errick McCollum and Alexey Shved controlling things.

Defense has been Fenerbahce’s calling card so far this season with it allowing 72.3 points per game. Khimki’s averages to date don’t mean much since the team has not yet played at full strength, but when it has Alexey Shved and Errick McCollum together, it is as dynamic as any backcourt in the competition. Fenerbahce will rely on Lorenzo Brown, Nando De Colo, Ali Muhammed and Melih Mahmutoglu to do their best in wearing down the Khimki stars at both ends of the floor.

Khimki is still finding the balance with so many players having missed games this season. The roster has a powerful frontline with Jonas Jerebko, Devin Booker, Jordan Mickey and Greg Monroe – a foursome that could cause trouble for any team. Khimki needs to make sure that the big men stay involved on the offensive end, which would keep opponents off balance and give Coach Kurtinaitis the explosive attack he desires.

Stefan Jovic has missed the first six games of the season. Sergey Monia has missed the last three games.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+5.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Zalgiris – Real

High-flying Zalgiris Kaunas will look to at least keep its share of first place when it hosts Real Madrid on Friday. The Lithuanian champs come off a 74-83 win at LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne – their fourth road win in as many games – behind 25 points from October MVP Marius Grigonis. Now Zalgiris looks for its second home win. Real, which is winless in three road games, bested FC Bayern Munich last week 100-82 behind 19 points from Jaycee Carroll.

The Real Madrid’s offense is always dangerous and Zalgiris must do everything possible to keep the visitors from getting easy points. Attacking the offensive glass through Joffrey Lauvergne, Nigel Hayes and Martinas Geben could keep Real from getting its way in transition. Zalgiris has drawn the joint-fourth-fewest fouls this season (19.5 per game), though its 91.1% free-throw shooting is the league’s best. Attacking the basket more and drawing more fouls would only benefit the hosts.

Zalgiris swingman Patricio Garino will be out of action until December after a knee operation.

Real has not been aggressive so far this season, which can be seen from the fact that its opponents have averaged a mere 11.2 turnovers per game, which is second-fewest in the league. If the pressure is not on the playmakers, Real needs to intimidate in the paint thanks to Walter Tavares and Usman Garuba. Zalgiris has made 56.3% of its two-pointers this season and shutting down its game in the paint would be a boost to Real’s chances.

Felipe Reyes has missed Real’s first six games of the season. Fabien Causeur tested positive for COVID-19 and missed last week’s game.

Bayern – Crvena Zvezda

Two teams coming off Round 6 losses meet when FC Bayern Munich hosts Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade on Friday. Bayern saw its winning streak snapped last week with a 100-82 loss at Real Madrid. Zvezda slipped back into the losing column with an 83-77 defeat at Khimki.

Bayern has been excellent on the glass this season. It is outrebounding opponents by 6.7 per game and its 11.5 offensive rebounds per game are fourth-best in the league, led by Jalen Reynolds. Another strong effort on the glass would be a great help for Zvezda to hold off Bayern and add another win to its record.

Zvezda will look to keep its perfect record against Bayern intact on Friday, but it will be no easy task. The visitors have the poorest numbers of the league in two-point shooting (46.3%), and that’s something they will have to work on. The main job for Zvezda players will be to establish its place in the game early so that Bayern doesn’t catch fire as it has in recent weeks.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+4.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Panathinaikos – CSKA Moscow

A classic EuroLeague matchup will have another chapter written on Friday when Panathinaikos OPAP Athens welcomes CSKA Moscow to the Greek capital in Round 7. Both teams returned to the winning path last week and now one of them will turn that into a winning streak. Panathinaikos last defeated Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul at home, 82-68, while CSKA bested Valencia Basket 84-75.

After only winning its opening game, Panathinaikos was back on track last week and will look to keep on building on that against the defending champs. The Greens will have to focus on stopping Will Clyburn and former teammate Mike James, as they are CSKA’s main offensive weapons, but must beware of dominant big men Nikola Milutinov and Toko Shengelia, too.

CSKA will travel to Athens with the goal of adding another win in a game that could come down to a single free throw. The main weapon for the visitors against the Greens seems to be long-range shooting and we will probably see plenty of that in another homecoming for Coach Dimitris Itoudis. A good shooting night could make the difference.

Valencia – Milano

EuroLeague action lands in Spain once again as Valencia Basket hosts AX Armani Exchange Milan on Friday in Round 7. Valencia suffered its second defeat last week at CSKA, 84-75, while Milan has not played since it defeated Real Madrid at home, 78-70, on October 16. Valencia will look to get back to its best form while Milan will have to shake off the rust from its two-week stop.

Valencia has more rhythm in the competition than Milan and will enter the game hungry after its loss to CSKA. Milan has one of the best shooting percentages in the league from beyond the arc, so the hosts will have to look out for those shooters in open positions. Valencia will have to make good use of its league-best 59.7% on two-point shots and not get over-confident due to playing a team that has not seen the courts in a couple of weeks.

Vanja Marinkovic won’t be available against Milan due to shoulder injury. Joan Sastre is sidelined with a partial tear to the internal lateral ligament of his right knee.

Milan will have two opponents on Friday: Valencia and itself, as it tries to get back into rhythm missing a beat. The visitors will have to increase its league-low 13.8 assists per game and do so with Malcolm Delaney not expected back yet from a sprained ankle. That puts a lot of pressure on Sergio Rodriguez. On defense, stopping Valencia’s big men is the main goal if Milan expects to win.

Kevin Punter has been sidelined for the start of the season with a hip flexor. Malcolm Delaney is expected to be out until mid-November with a sprained ankle. Vladimir Micov has missed the start of the season with an elbow injury.

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

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
