Zenit – Khmki

Zenit St Petersburg will look to continue its strong start to the season when it hosts Khimki Moscow Region on Tuesday evening in a battle of Russian sides. Zenit comes off a 53-66 road win at LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne in which its defense was a tough as ever. Khimki’s Round 8 game was postponed and Coach Rimas Kurtinaitis’s men will be eager to capture a valuable road win.

It all starts with defense for Zenit, which is keeping teams to a league-low 66.8 points per game. Part of that has been controlling the tempo, since Zenit’s 69.8 points per game are also a league-low. Kevin Pangos runs the Zenit offense, but his 4.3 turnovers per game must be cut down for the team to become more efficient, which is a necessity in low-scoring games. Strong play at the point guard spot is a key for Zenit.

With one of the game’s elite scorers in Alexey Shved (19.0 ppg, 10.7 apg.) and a quick and athletic roster, Khimki likes to run when possible. However, the team has made only 50.6% of its two-pointers and 33.5% of threes while committing the third most turnovers per game (15.7) and allowing opponents a league-high 9.1 steals. The recipe for success on the road against an elite defense is more efficiency – fewer turnovers that lead to easy baskets and taking better shots.

Stefan Jovic has not played yet this season due to an ankle injury. Sergey Monia has missed the last four games.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+2.5) at 1.86 with bet365

Efes – Bayern

In a showdown between two of the hottest teams in the league, Anadolu Efes Istanbul hosts FC Bayern Munich on Tuesday. Efes has reeled off three straight wins – including two on the road – and now looks to capture its second home win of the season. Second-place Bayern is 3-1 on the road this season and has won its last two games. A victory over the team that had the best record last season would be another confidence boost for Coach Trinchieri’s side.

Efes has found success through its guards in recent years, whether that be Shane Larkin, Vasilije Micic, Rodrigue Beaubois or Krunoslav Simon. This season, the team’s traditional elite three-point shooting has dipped to 37.2%, while it has allowed opponents to make 41.9% of threes. Efes will need to play better all-around defence against a Bayern team, which has no shortage of one-on-one scorers, headlined by Wade Baldwin IV.

Shane Larkin and Bryant Dunson both missed the team’s games in Rounds 7 and 8.

If Efes arrives without the injured Bryant Dunston, Bayern can make the most of what is already a significant rebounding advantage. With Jalen Reynolds (6.9 rpg.) leading the way, Bayern has outrebounded opponents by an average of 6.4 per game, while Efes has been outrebounded by 4.7 per game. If Bayern can maximize that difference, especially on the offensive glass where its 11.5 per game are second-most in the league, the visitors will put themselves in a good spot to score another road win.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 159.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Zalgiris – CSKA Moscow

Two teams with identical records meet on Tuesday in a classic of European basketball when Zalgiris Kaunas (5-3) hosts CSKA Moscow (5-3) in the first of both teams’ two games this week. Zalgiris started strong, but has lost three of its last four games, including a blowout in Tel Aviv last week. CSKA, on the other hand, is on a three-game winning streak after a slow start.

Zalgiris seems to have entered a dark moment of the season after shining in the first rounds. The Lithuanian champion will look to get back to the winning path as soon as possible. However, CSKA boats the second-best offense in the league. Last week, CSKA missed several key players including Mike James, so it remains to be seen if he will be available for the game. The hosts average less than 30 rebounds per game, so that could be a starting point to try to gain control of the rhythm in games.

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

CSKA is on a roll and getting better day by day after a slow start. The reigning champs are facing a team that is having doubts now, so they should try to take advantage of the situation. The visitors have some of the poorest shooting percentages in the league from the stripe and from inside the arc, so if they work on improving that aspect and with better shot selection, they will have a much bigger chance of leaving Kaunas with the win.

Baskonia – Fenerbahce

Two teams in need of wins will face each other on Tuesday when TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz hosts Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul in their first game of a double-bill week. Baskonia did not complete a comeback against CSKA Moscow last week and lost on the road while Fenerbahce got thrashed in Barcelona, so both teams will be looking to get back on the winning track.

Baskonia is playing against the third-poorest offense in the league, but Fenerbahce (73.3 ppg.) will be eager to show that what happened in Barcelona last week was an accident. Both teams are close on paper, but with Nando De Colo sidelined, the hosts have a better opportunity to snap their losing streak to Fenerbahce.

Fenerbahce returns to Spain for the second time in less than a week, with the urge to win after the severe beating suffered in Barcelona. Baskonia showed its legendary character against CSKA, but could not complete the comeback, so it will be eager to do the job against Fener. All signs point to this game being a matter of details to see who can get this bounceback win.

De Colo will be sidelined until early December with a calf muscle injury.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-2.0) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 17/11/2020, 08:50 CET, subject to change)

Valencia – Panathinaikos

Valencia Basket comes off a loss against FC Bayern Munich and hopes to bounce back right away at La Fonteta. Bojan Dubljevic (12.7 ppg.) has been Valencia’s top scorer until now, followed by Nikola Kalinic (11.1 ppg.) and Klemen Prepelic (10.1 ppg.). Panathinaikos OPAP Athens is on a two-game losing streak and looks for its second road victory. Nemanja Nedovic (15.6 ppg.), Ioannis Papapetrou (12.6 ppg.) and Georgios Papagiannis (8.0 ppg., 5.3 rpg., 1.5 bpg.) have been its pillars so far this season.

Valencia needs to get its big men involved, as Dubljevic and Mike Tobey are great pick-and-pop players who can take Papagiannis out of the paint with their shots from downtown. Stopping Nedovic is a priority but Valencia can rely on its top on-the-ball defender Guillem Vives to do so. Fernando San Emeterio is back, which gives Valencia more weapons to use against Howard Sant-Roos and Papapetrou at small forward. Getting Kalinic and Derrick Williams involved on offense is also a priority for the hosts.

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

Panathinaikos has been taking good care of the ball, averaging 1.47 assists per turnover, but has struggled to shoot well from beyond the arc (34.4%, 12th overall) and especially from the foul line (72.0%, 17th). Shelvin Mack gives Panathinaikos more firepower from downtown. Panathinaikos leads the EuroLeague in offensive (1.5 orpg.) and total rebounds (37.2 rpg.), and those second-chance opportunities are critical to stopping Valencia’s transition game.

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.
