Zenit – Crvena Zvezda

Two teams with differing momentum will face each other on Tuesday when Zenit St Petersburg (8-5) welcomes Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (5-10) for Round 16. Zenit comes off a loss at CSKA Moscow, while Zvezda snapped a five-game losing streak with a 76-73 home win over Valencia Basket.

The game will match two teams that live in similar places, or so say the numbers. Zvezda struggles in assists and two-point accuracy, so Zenit’s best bet will come from playing tight defense. The hosts have the fifth-best two-point accuracy (54.6%) while Zvezda has the worst in the league (49.6%) but the visitors shoot a bit better from the stripe and from three-point range. Zenit will have to pay close attention to the Zvezda snipers if it wants to protect its home court.

After a big bump on the road, Zvezda is back on the winning path and will try to turn that into a streak in Russia. However, Zenit boasts the second-best defense in the league, so the individual talents of Loyd, Johnny O’Bryant and Corey Walden could be the key in St Petersburg.

Langston Hall has missed Zvezda’s last five games.

basketball prediction Tip: No Bet

Efes – Barcelona

Either Anadolu Efes Istanbul (7-8) or FC Barcelona (11-4) will return to its winning ways on Tuesday when they face each other in Turkey in Round 16. Efes is on a three-game losing streak and is 2-5 at home this season. Barcelona, which lost its share of the top spot in the standings by falling to Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv on Friday, is 4-2 on the road.

Efes is in a tough spot and a prestigious win against Barcelona could give the team a positive dynamic. The hosts are one of two teams averaging less than 30 rebounds per game and Barca is shooting better than Efes from all ranges. Efes will have to put its team chemistry to use against a powerful team that comes from a painful home loss.

The close loss last week at home against Maccabi will surely ignite Barca’s hunger to steer the situation back to the winning track. Efes is in a bit of a hole and the visitors will try to take advantage of that. Barcelona is second- and third-best in the league, respectively, in two-point and three-point accuracy. If it manages to put those tools to good use, Barcelona will have a chance to escape Istanbul with a win.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 153.5 at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 22/12/2020, 09:00 CET, subject to change)

Maccabi – Panathinaikos

Two classic EuroLeague teams in similar situations will add another chapter to their rivalry when Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv (6-9) hosts Panathinaikos OPAP Athens (5-9) on Tuesday. The hosts scored a valuable road win at FC Barcelona on Friday, while the Greens also won their last game, at home against ALBA Berlin.

Maccabi seems to have the biggest edge on defense, as the Greens have the second-worst one in the league. Maccabi is also third-best in steals while Panathinaikos stands last in those rankings. If Maccabi manages to get its defense going as it did against Barcelona, the Israeli champ could be in the driver’s seat in this game.

Panathinaikos will land in Tel Aviv with confidence from its last win. Defense is the biggest weak spot for the Greens and they will have to perform very well on offense to disarm the Maccabi D. It will require a big team effort for the guests to turn their latest win into a streak.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+6.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 22/12/2020, 09:00 CET, subject to change)

Villeurbanne – CSKA Moscow

LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne (5-9) has won its last two home games and hopes to keep its streak going against the current leaders. Norris Cole (12.3 ppg.) has been ASVEL’s top scorer until now, followed by David Lighty (10.9 ppg.) and Moustapha Fall (10.7 ppg.). CSKA Moscow (12-3) is on a 10-game winning streak. Mike James (19.9 ppg., 5.6 apg.), Will Clyburn (14.6 ppg.) and Nikola Milutinov (8.0 ppg., 7.5 rpg.) are its pillars.

ASVEL has outrebounded its last two opponents and set a EuroLeague season-best by making 33 two-point shots against Maccabi. ASVEL can also be dangerous from downtown; it made 17 of 24 three-pointers (70.8%) in a win against Panathinaikos OPAP Athens. Reading the game properly should allow ASVEL to find advantages, either feeding Fall down low or getting its shooters involved. Norris Cole and Antoine Diot hold the keys and they need to see how their team can be most effective.

ASVEL signed Derrick Walton Jr. over the weekend.

CSKA is the top-scoring team in the competition (84.2 ppg.) by playing at a higher rhythm than anyone else. It leads the EuroLeague in fouls drawn (22.5 per game) and is third in three-point shots attempted (26.9) with a strong percentage (39.1%). It is also first in offensive rebounds (12.1 orpg.). CSKA should keep running its offense through James, find Milutinov down low for points in the paint and to try to get Fall into foul trouble, and look for potential mismatches through Clyburn, Toko Shengelia and Johannes Voigtmann.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (+7.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 22/12/2020, 09:00 CET, subject to change)

Real Madrid – ALBA Berlin

Real Madrid (10-5) comes off a triumphant week with a pair of road victories in Greece, but lost Anthony Randolph (9.3 ppg.) for the remainder of the season due to injury. Edy Tavares (11.6 ppg., 7.5 rpg., 2.0 bpg.), Trey Thompkins (11.3 ppg.) and Sergio Llull (10.4 ppg.) are its top scorers this season. After a 1-5 start, ALBA (6-8) has won five of its last eight games, led by Niels Giffey (10.0 ppg.), Peyton Siva (9.9 ppg., 5.3 apg.) and Luke Sikma (9.4 ppg., 5.9 rpg., 3.7 apg.).

Tavares has been unstoppable lately and getting him involved should give Real a better chance to win. Not only he is changing games on defense, but is as effective as ever on offense (72.6% 3FG, 73.5% FT). Tavares gets double-teamed often, opening the floor for shooters Llull, Carroll, Thompkins and Alberto Abalde. As always, Real should find advantages in the open court, so Llull and Nico Laprovittola should push the team in transition as often as possible.

ALBA needs to be aggressive as it has lately, ranking fourth overall in offensive rebounds (11 orpg.) and steals (7.2 spg.). ALBA is also second in assists (20.0 apg.) despite being 11th in scoring (78.1 ppg.), which speaks wonders about its ball circulation. ALBA, however, is allowing 83.1 points per game and opponents have made 56.4% of their two-point shots. In that sense, Tavares is a big threat, so Johannes Thiemann, Kresimir Nikic and Louis Olinde should be Coach Aito Garcia Reneses’s best options to stop him.

ALBA is without shooting guard Marcus Eriksson and forward Lorenz Brenneke due to ankle injuries.

basketball prediction Tip: Real Over 87.5 at 1.83 with bet365

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
