Milano – ALBA Berlin

In a clash between teams coming of spectacular wins, AX Armani Exchange Milan hosts ALBA Berlin on Tuesday in a makeup game from Round 6. Milan (5-3) edged Maccabi in overtime in Tel Aviv last week, while ALBA (3-6) reached triple digits for the first time this season when it bested Khimki Moscow Region 100-80. Milan is 3-1 at home this season, but ALBA is 1-2 on the rad with both losses coming by narrow margins.

Kevin Punter’s return to action has charged the Milan attack, which has averaged 90.3 points with him in the lineup. With Punter, Malcolm Delaney, Shavon Shields and Sergio Rodriguez, Milan must find the weakest link in the opposition’s defense at any given time and attack it with its elite perimeter scorers. Milan is 3-0 this season when holding the opposition below 80 points and 4-1 when it has scored at least 80.

Three times this season ALBA has scored more than 75 points and it won each of those games. ALBA ranks last in the league in three-point shooting (33.1%) and the absence of Marcus Eriksson further weakens the perimeter attack. However, with Niels Giffey, Jonas Mattiseck and Maodo Lo, the team has the shooters to threaten from deep, which it must do to capture another road win.

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

Villeurbanne – Panathinaikos

LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne will look to continue its momentum when it hosts Panathinaikos OPAP Athens on Tuesday in a makeup game from Round 3. ASVEL (2-6) comes off an 80-68 upset of top-ranked FC Barcelona led by veterans David Lighty and Norris Cole. Panathinaikos (3-6) is also in good spirits after topping FC Bayern Munich with Nemanja Nedovic and Howard Sant-Roos stuffing the stat sheets. The Greens seek their first road win of the season since stopping Khimki in Russia on opening night.

Injuries and COVID-19 absences have derailed ASVEL this season, but when healthy the team has been very competitive. ASVEL is last in the league in scoring (71.8 ppg.), however, it has averaged 84 points – and won – the last two games Norris Cole appeared in. By joining forces with Antione Diot, he gives ASVEL strong, experienced point guard play all game and if those two are in form, ASVEL is better on both ends of the floor.

Despite the presence of a few defensive aces such as Sant-Roos on the perimeter and Papagiannis as a rim protector, the Greens have allowed the third-most points in the league this season (83.6 ppg.). Turning up the pressure on an ASVEL side that leads the league in turnovers (15.8 TOpg.) and getting more steals than the relatively low number it averages (5.7 spg.) could put Panathinaikos in a position to strike for a second road win.
