“Olympiakos” quite unexpectedly became the team number 2 ended Euroleague. Will the Greeks win a convincing victory at the start? – about this in our forecast.
Last season, ” Oli ” scored the same number of points with compatriots from the PAO. 19 wins with 11 defeats. All this corresponded to the third place in the regular season. In the playoffs in an exciting thriller, the Greeks defeated the Turks from “Ephesus” (3: 2). In Final Four, “red-white”, not being a favorite, was not allowed to the CSKA final. And then they lost in the decisive duel Fenerbahce. To the new Euroleague the basketball club from Piraeus retained the backbone and the head coach.
“The Basque Country”
In ” Baskonia “, on the contrary, a new coach. The last season the Basques conducted quite successfully. After that, Sito Alonso led the “Barcelona” going to the bottom and several leading basketball players moved to more prestigious teams. “Sheep” finished seventh and lost in the quarter-finals of CSKA with a score of 0: 3.
Statistics and personal meetings
On Sunday, “Oli” in his field lost in the Greek derby PAO.
“Baskonia” in the League ACV won once, but lost – two.
In the past season, the Greeks twice excelled the Basques (92:62 and 90:95).
In the reporting match only a miracle can prevent the hosts to score two points. “Baskonia” has been substantially updated. So much so that bookmakers do not see it in the first eight. We believe that the more stable Olympiakos will not leave reboots for the guests and the slightest chance.
