Alba Berlin vs Anadolu Efes Odds
In the last round, Alba ended a very bad losing streak and recorded its second win this season in the Euroleague. As the hosts, they defeated the Zalgiris team after a big turnaround. Zalgiris was in the lead during the entire match, and they even had a 17-point advantage. However, Alba did not give up and took the lead for the first time just seven seconds before the end of the match. Mattisseck hit a 3-pointer for Alba’s first lead of the match, which would eventually prove to be the final score.
Alba is playing very badly this season, especially in the Euroleague, where according to everything shown, they are by far the worst team in the league, and those bad games in the last few rounds have been carried over to the domestic championship. For this match, Thomas, Brown, and Olinde, who along with Thiemann, are the leaders of this Alba team, are under a big question mark. A special problem for the hosts is the defense, where they regularly concede over 90+ points. However, in the last match against Zalgiris, they played quite well in defense where they conceded only 62 points. Thiemann led the Zalgiris team to victory with 16 points and 6 rebounds and once again showed all his qualities. Alba has a chance to finish this double round with two wins without a large number of players, which would be a huge success, because the Efes team is coming as their guest, which, like Alba, is pretty decimated by injuries.

Anadolu Efes Team News
Before the start of the match against Panathinaikos, Efes was almost written off, and almost everyone expected the “greens” from Athens to secure a victory and to take advantage of the injuries of Anadolu Efes players. But from the very beginning of the match, Erdem Can’s team showed everyone that they wanted to win that victory more than the players of Panathinaikos. Despite a short rotation, but also a very poor three-point shooting of only 17%, Efes won, and the most deserving of that was center Tyrique Jones, who dominated under the basket.
He scored 21 points and grabbed 13 rebounds while playing fantastic defense. He was followed by Larkin with 20 points, who was quite burdened with the pressure of the Panathinaikos defenders, where the entire concentration of the defense was precisely on Larkin. Thompson didn’t make a difference but had a terrible game shooting 3/13 from the field, and scoring just seven points. To make the problem for Efes even bigger, Yilmaz was also injured and is questionable for this match. A total of eight players from the rotation are missing from Can, but they are not going to Berlin with a “white flag”. Efes acted quickly and brought in two players “under” the radar. Daum, an excellent shooter from a distance, and Oturu, who is an excellent jumper above all, arrived first. It was Oturu who caught the key jump in the attack against Panathinaikos and that was how the game was concluded.

Alba Berlin vs Anadolu Efes Prediction
Alba caused big problems for Efes even when the Turks were in their best form in previous years. Last year, they suffered a heavy defeat that ultimately eliminated them from the playoffs. However, in this match, where both teams are quite weakened, we think that Efes has more quality to win. We believe that Efes will be able to shoot much more from a distance and that they will not shoot as badly as they did against Panathinaikos.
