Crvena Zvezda – Olympiacos

Fresh off an impressive road win at league-leading FC Barcelona on Tuesday night, Olympiacos Piraeus (6-5) will look to turn it into a winning streak when it visits Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (4-8) on Thursday. The Reds, who stopped a two-game slide with the victory, face a Zvezda team that has dropped three straight games. Olympiacos is 3-2 on the road, while Zvezda is 2-3 at home this season, including defeats in its last two games in the Serbian capital.

Zvezda is last in the league in both two-point shooting (48.5%) and assists (13.9 apg.) and the two numbers are related. The many missed shots have lowered the assist numbers, but the low assist numbers also testify to fewer good looks for the Zvezda scorers. Improved ball movement and more-accurate shooting could lift Zvezda higher.

Langston Hall has missed Zvezda’s last two games.

Olympiacos looked great on Tuesday, but two of its stars, Kostas Sloukas and Hassan Martin, played a lot of minutes and are unlikely to repeat that. Accordingly, Coach Bartzokas will need others to step up with veterans Vassilis Spanoulis and Georgios Printezis and backup center Octavius Ellis among the natural candidates. If the Reds’ second unit shine, it could make all the difference in this game.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 150.5 at 1.90 with bet365

ALBA Berlin – Fenerbahce

ALBA Berlin (4-7) comes off a road win in Valencia and has won three of its last five games after a 1-5 start. Luke Sikma (9.5 ppg., 5.8 rpg.), Peyton Siva (8.7 ppg., 5.3 apg.) and Niels Giffey (9.5 ppg.) are leading the team right now. Fenerbahce (5-7) snapped a four-game losing streak with a road victory against Zenit St Petersburg. Lorenzo Brown (12.2 ppg., 4.8 apg.), Jan Vesely (11.2 ppg., 5.7 rpg.) and Danilo Barthel (8.3 ppg.) are its pillars with Nando De Colo sidelined.

In Round 12, ALBA outrebounded Valencia 23-39 and buried 17 of 32 three-point shots despite being without two of its best shooters, Simone Fontecchio and Marcus Eriksson. Siva had 10 of his team’s 28 assists while Jayson Granger and Maodo Lo each added 5. It is necessary for ALBA that its guards keep sharing the ball like that, as the German champion has good shooters everywhere; all nine players who took three-point shots against Valencia hit at least one.

ALBA will be without shooting guard Marcus Eriksson and forward Lorenz Brenneke for the next few weeks due to ankle injuries.

After allowing at least 86 points in each of its four consecutive losses, Fenerbahce limited Zenit to just 65 points. That defensive effort is needed against an offensive-minded team like ALBA, which scored 100 points in each of its last two wins and just 55 in its last loss. Fenerbahce ranks 17th in offensive rebounds (7.7 orpg.) while ALBA is fourth (10.9 orpg.). Being able to box out under its own rim and be more aggressive to look for second-chance opportunities are two of the keys for Fener.

De Colo has been sidelined with a calf muscle injury.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 159.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Valencia – Efes

Valencia Basket will look to put an end to a two-game slide on Thursday when it hosts Anadolu Efes Istanbul. The two teams are tied for sixth place in the standings with 7-5 records. It will be the second game in 48 hours for both teams. Valencia fell to Zenit St Petersburg at home on Tuesday for its second straight home loss and third this season. Efes, which outlasted LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne, is seeking its fifth consecutive road win.

Valencia leads the league in two-point shooting at 58.5%, but knows there won’t be many easy scores in the paint against Efes when Dunston or Tibor Pleiss are in the game. However, thanks to the outside shooting of Dubljevic and Mike Tobey and the abilities of forwards Derrick Williams and Nikola Kalinic to attack the basket, Coach Pansarnau’s squad may have what it takes to neutralize the Efes big men in a critical facet of the game.

Vanja Marinkovic has missed Valencia’s last seven games due to a shoulder injury. Joan Sastre is sidelined with a partial tear to the internal lateral ligament of his right knee.

The Efes attack has been merely average from behind the arc (37.6%) this season after knocking down 42.1% of their threes last year. On Tuesday, the team shot 2 for 9 from downtown which marked its fewest attempts since 2012. Valencia is allowing teams to convert 40.2% of threes so far this season. If Shane Larkin, Vasilije Micic and Adrien Moerman take advantage to rain threes in this game, it could not only lead to a victory but a turning point for Coach Ataman’s men.

Krunoslav Simon is suffering from a back injury.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (-2.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 10/12/2020, 10:30 CET, subject to change)

Real – Zenit

Two of the hottest teams in the league meet in a Thursday showdown when Real Madrid hosts Zenit St. Petersburg. Real (7-5) has won six of its last seven games and Zenit (7-3) is undefeated in six games on the road. Two players will be facing their former teams; Zenit sharpshooter K.C. Rivers won the 2015 EuroLeague with Real. The hosts’ point guard Nicolas Laprovittola played for Zenit in 2017-18.

Real has been outrebounded on average by 2.4 rebounds per game and is in the bottom half of the standings with 8.8 offensive rebounds per game. Zenit has outrebounded its opponents by nearly 3 rebounds per game. Between Tavares, Anthony Randolph and Trey Thompkins, Real has a decisive size advantage in the frontline and needs to turn that into a rebounding advantage to improve the hosts’ chances in this game.

Zenit will play its second road game in 48 hours and three of its perimeter players – Austin Hollins, K.C. Rivers and Kevin Pangos – spent more than 28 minutes on the floor in Tuesday’s victory in Valencia. Billy Baron, Vitaly Fridzon and Mateusz Ponitka may be needed to play more minutes in Madrid and if they are up for the challenge, it would surely help Zenit as it seeks another road win.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+8.0) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 10/12/2020, 10:30 CET, subject to change)

Baskonia – Maccabi

Baskonia (6-5) has won four of its last five games and returns home after back-to-back road wins over Olympiacos Piraeus and Anadolu Efes Istanbul. Alec Peters (12.9 ppg.), Rokas Giedraitis (12.5 ppg.) and Pierria Henry (11.3 ppg., 6.9 apg., 1.9 spg.) are leading the team right now. Maccabi (4-8) beat Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade in Round 12 and looks for its first EuroLeague road win since October. Scottie Wilbekin (18.0 ppg.), Elijah Bryant (10.8 ppg.) and Ante Zizic (9.6 ppg.) are its top scorers this season.

Getting its frontcourt involved is a must for Baskonia. Against Efes, Peters, Achille Polonara, Youssoupha Fall and Tonye Jekiri combined for 51 points and 25 rebounds. Baskonia’s frontcourt has plenty of size, deep shooting range and physicality, but stopping Zizic and Othello Hunter is necessary for the hosts. The teams lead the charts in rebounds – Maccabi is first at 37.1 per game with Baskonia right behind at 35.4. If Baskonia limits Wilbekin on defense and outrebounds Maccabi, it has better chances to get another win.

Luca Vildoza is day-to-day with a back injury.

Stopping Peters is a must for all teams facing Baskonia right now, as he has been on fire lately, scoring both inside and outside. Omri Casspi and Angelo Caloiaro are Maccabi’s best options to guard him. On offense, Maccabi relies on Wilbekin to make the difference and on Chris Jones and John DiBartolomeo to set a game tempo that allows their team to play in transition. Maccabi is expected to use Angelo Caloiaro and Dragan Bender to open the floor with their outside shooting, bringing Jekiri and Fall out of the paint.

Yovel Zoosman is fit to make his first appearance of the season against Baskonia.

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

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.
