Khimki – Crvena Zvezda

Two teams with opposite momentum collide in the Russian capital when Khimki Moscow Region hosts Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade on Friday evening. The hosts are winless in five games this season, though two of those losses have come by a single basket, including last week’s 87-89 overtime defeat against Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv. Zvezda is in good spirits after an overtime takedown off CSKA Moscow in Round 5, but Coach Sasa Obradovic’s side is still seeking its first road win of the season.

Khimki was almost at full strength in Round 5 with Shved and Greg Monroe making their season debuts. While that led to an excellent three-point shooting night and strong play from the big men, Khimki also committed 19 turnovers and as a team shot just 42.6% on two-pointers. Improvements in both those categories would increase Khimki’s chances of getting in the win column this week.

Khimki’s Jordan Mickey, Janis Timma, Evgeny Voronov, Greg Monroe returned to action in Round 5 after testing positive for COVID-19 and missing three games. Stefan Jovic and Errick McCollum both missed the first five games of the season. Sergey Monia missed the last two games.

Twice this season Zvezda has had only two players score in double figures and only once has it had four players with more than 10 points. The more effective scoring weapons Zvezda has, the more freedom Loyd has and the more dangerous Zvezda’s attack is overall. The emergence of second and third scoring options is critical for Zvezda.

Olympiacos – Efes

Very familiar foes meet for the 41st time this century, matching the record between Turkish Airlines EuroLeague teams, when Olympiacos (3-2) welcomes Efes (1-3) to Piraeus on Friday. The Reds saw their three-game winning streak stopped last week, but will seek to extend their two in a row at home. Efes heads to its third consecutive road game hoping that superstar Shane Larkin will be ready to play for the first time this season.

Given Efes’s weaknesses so far, Olympiacos will want to concentrate on rebounds and assists. Efes ranks dead last on the boards, which offers the Reds opportunities at both ends. At the same time, extra passing on the offensive end could lead to late open looks that also serve the purpose of slowing the faster pace that Efes likes. Sloukas, Charles Jenkins and Vassilis Spanoulis need to protect the ball and their teammates to stay patient until the opportunities arise. On defense, no team allows fewer assists to opponents than Olympiacos, but Efes presents more one-on-one challenges than most teams, and they must be met, too.

Put simply, opponents are finding it too easy to shoot against Efes, which ranks among the lowest three EuroLeague defenses in terms of two- and three-point shooting accuracy and assists average by its opponents. Also, no team commits fewer fouls or puts opponents on the line less than Efes. Against a physical team like Olympiacos, it stands to reason that the visitors will have to toughen up on defense first and let their prolific offense flow from that. If Larkin returns in form, he alone can change the game’s pace, which would favor Efes, but not if Olympiacos can find easy shots consistently.

Shane Larkin missed the first four games of the season due to injury.

Baskonia – Barcelona

Intranational opponents TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz (2-1) and FC Barcelona (4-1) take each other’s temperature again on Friday night. Having lost only one game each so far, one team will solidify its good status while the other will suffer a step back in after this one. Baskonia has played only once in the EuroLeague since October 9, winning against a weakened Khimki Moscow Region, while Barcelona comes off a solid performance to beat archrival Real Madrid.

The hosts have the second-ranked defense, with opponents averaging just 71.0 points per game, and therein lies the road to victory against a talented Barcelona team. Rebounding, stealing and running are part of the recipe for Baskonia to get easy baskets and keep the visitors guessing. Pierria Henry’s league-leading assist-to-turnover ratio (9.5 to 1) is also key to Baskonia getting an opportunity out of every offense. His defense on the ball is just as important to slow down Nick Calathes before the Barca offense can get into a rhythm.

Alec Peters missed his team’s Round 4 game due to an ankle injury he suffered during warm-ups.

The visitors are hoping to get back team leader Nikola Mirotic for this game, but they also won three games without him with players like Rolands Smits and Sergi Martinez stepping up at the same power forward position. All who play will be valuable against a Baskonia team that likes to attack the basket, preferably on the run. In particular, their rebounding, along with that of center Brandon Davies, will be key if Barca is going to dictate tempo on the road, which would go a long way to bringing home a victory.

Nikola Mirotic missed last three games after testing positive for COVID-19.

Milano – ALBA Berlin

Game Suspended

AX Armani Exchange Milan vs. ALBA Berlin, originally scheduled to be played on Thursday, October 30, has been suspended. ALBA requested the suspension of the game due to local legislation imposing quarantine measures on the team, which leaves it without the minimum eight players on the Authorisation List fit to play.

Following the modification of the Special Regulations due to COVID-19, approved by the ECA Shareholders Executive Board, the game can be rescheduled up to three times, if there are available dates. Euroleague Basketball will coordinate with both teams the best options to reschedule the game. Alternative date will be announced on official Euroleague Basketball platforms once confirmed.

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 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.
