Asvel has been participating in the Euroleague for three years, but so far they have not been even close to qualify for the quarterfinals. Owner Tony Parker has invested a lot of money in this club in recent years, but there seems to be no progress. The media in France pointed out his brother T.J. Parker as the main culprit, and according to reports, he will leave head coach position at the end of this season. In addition, one of the greatest talents of French basketball Victor Wembanyama is also leaving Asvel for Paris, which is a sign that not everything is working properly in this club at the moment. The best player Elie Okobo won’t stay in Asvel either. He agreed on all the conditions with Monaco. In such a mood, Asvel played a very bad game number one. A lot of things will have to change in game number two to get into a situation to win, and whether that will be the case remains to be seen. It is very difficult to change the bad chemistry in a few days, and it has been present in this team locker room for several months.

Monaco has made a historic result this year. In their first season, they advanced to the Euroleague quarterfinals and only one win separated them from qualifying for the Final Four. Already at the beginning of this season, there was a conflict between the head coach Zvezdan Mitrovic and the best player Mike James. The club management decided to fire the Montenegrian coach and Sasha Obradovic was brought in as new head coach. This turned out to be an excellent move since this team has played incomparably better since Obradovic arrived. They were almost unbeatable in the last 15 rounds in the Euroleague. In addition to James, Dwayne Bacon played remarkably, while Paris Lee also used all the minutes he got. Monaco is a much better team than Asvel this season and will be the favorites in game number two, regardless of the fact that game will be played in Villeurbanne. James shot disastrously for three points, but he still managed to be the team’s top scorer with 17 points in game number one.

Five times these clubs have played against each other this season and Monaco is leading 3-2 in overall H2H. This series is played in the best of 5, and Monaco is currently leading 1-0.
Coaches can use six foreign players per game, so some of them will stay out. Chris Jones is questionable for Asvel due to injury, while Monaco have all players available.
Asvel vs. Monaco Prediction
Simply put, Monaco is a better team at the moment, and it’s always smarter to bet on a better team, especially when you also have a handicap. There is a bad atmosphere inside Asvel locker room and it will be difficult for them to beat Monaco in such a state.
