Prediction: Olympiacos Piraeus - Maccabi Tel Aviv, Euroleauge
- Title : Prediction: Olympiacos Piraeus - Maccabi Tel Aviv, Euroleauge
Before this match, both of them will have to play the 3rd round of the Euroleague. Olympiacos against Milan while Maccabi will meet CSKA Moscow. It is a bit ungrateful to predict this match before the end of the previous ones, but on the other hand, it also has some advantages. It will not be easy to achieve such a result again, as far as the Israeli team is concerned. Olympiacos will be much more concentrated in this match. Maccabi also lacks a couple of players, and Kaspi is certainly one of the most important. The former Sacramento Kings player has an injured knee. I expect a close result in the first half, but in the second, Olympiacos should add gas, and I expect a victory of 5-10 points difference in the end.
As it is known, Olympiacos competes with their best players only in the Euroleague, while in the Greek 2nd league it competes only with domestic players. It also has its advantages and disadvantages. The main players now have much more time to rest, and the famous Greek team will certainly attack with all their might a place in the first 8 teams of this year's Euroleague. It is a gathering of great internationals and young Greek players alongside veterans Spanoulis and Printezis.
After two matches played in the Euroleague, “The pride of Israel” achieved one victory and one defeat. Although they had more than a good chance to upset CSKA in Moscow and win the previous round, they eventually lost 76:72. Wilbekin was great in that match with 20 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists,s, but that was not enough for the overall score. Interestingly, Maccabi, when they visited Athens the previous time, practically broke up on parts Olympiakos with 90:65
