Alba Berlin Team News 

 The team from Berlin has done a great job in the current part of the season. After defeating Partizan very easily at the opening of the Euroleague, they made a small surprise by defeating Milan away from home, without their perhaps best player, Lo.

Alba plays atypical basketball style compared to almost all European teams. Very fast, with many possessions, dribbles, and three-point shots. Against Panata, they will have problems breaking the granite defense that Radonjić is pushing.

The main player is  Luke Sikma, who creates the play of the team from Berlin from position 4. A big improvement in Alba was shown by center Koumadje, who dominates the racket and brings a big advantage in the jump.

Alba played their match against Bonn on Monday, and they won that match after extra time, which can be a problem for the Alba, due to rest and greater energy discharge.

B.C. Panathinaikos Team News 

A major overhaul of the team took place this season. The team was taken over by Montenegrin coach Dejan Radonjić, who is known as a tenor who demands a lot on defense. Based on that, he put together a team that can meet all his defensive demands.

The team is reinforced by the great Ponitko, whose energy and style of play reach both ends of the field. It was he who decided the match in Belgrade with his points and rebounds. Along with him, the Lithuanians, Grigonis and Gudaitis, who contribute at both ends of the field, arrived in Pao. 

Nate Wolters, who is injured, will not be in the team for the greens from Athens, and he is one of the most important screws in Dejan Radonjić’s team.

Pao receives few points, Radonjić forces high pressure, and the defensive line constantly puts pressure on the opponents defensively. Lee-Andrews-Ponitka is a trio that dominates physically and can answer all the offensive demands that Gonzales puts before them.

Visiting Berlin is not easy for any team, and the main task for Radonjić’s team will be to slow down Alba’s tempo game, and victory will be close.

Alba Berlin vs. Panathinaikos Prediction 

Alba will not be able to count on Eriksson, while Lammers and Lo are questionable, Wolters will not be in the lineup for Pao.

In this match, we will look for a good results for Panata, win or a defeat by up to 5 points. We will take into account the fatigue of Alba’s players, who finished their match on Monday only after extra time and have problems with injuries. And Panata’s defensive style is an antidote to Alba’s attack.
