Anadolu Efes Team News 

Efes is in trouble and will have to fight with all its might against the biggest surprise of this season, Alba from Berlin. Ergin Ataman team lost two games in a row, the defeat against Valencia was particularly shocking.

This season, Efes will be led by the Micić-Larkin duo. Efes is a great attacking team, and there is a lot of talk about that attack, but not much is said about the defense, which the Efes team knows how to play perfectly. Especially since they have a great defender Bryant Dunston in their composition. 

As for this season in the Euroleague, Efes defeated Crvena Zvezda at home in the first round. The Red and Whites were tied with Efes during the entire match, but in the last quarter, Micić and Clyburn stepped up, and the match went to the side of the “brewers” from Istanbul. They were defeated in Monaco after extra time. The defeat against Valencia is a big surprise for all connoisseurs of basketball opportunities in Europe. The team from Spain was in a series of 4 defeats, and coach Mumbru’s bench was under question, but they beat Efes away. The strangest thing is that Efes lost and scored as many as 91 points.

Alba Berlin Team News 

A real little miracle is being made by Alba’s team this season. An example of team basketball is where each player has the right role and trust. We saw this best in the last round when, without four players from the first five, they defeated Panathinaikos by almost 30 points.

This match will be the third match in five days for Izrael Gonzalez’s team, which will be a big problem even with such a shortened rotation. The two players, Lo and Smith, were injured and did not play either in the match against Bonn or Panata. But the fighting spirit and team basketball won both times.

The main player is a 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. In the absence of Smith and Lo, the top games were played by Tamir Blatt, who decided the matches against Bonn and made the difference against Pao.

Against Efes away from home with a short rotation, it will not be easy for them, but they should not be written off, never.

Anadolu Efes vs. Alba Berlin  Prediction

For the Efes team, one of the best players, Shane Larkin, will be absent due to a finger injury. Eriksson is out for this match, and a longer break awaits him. While Lo, Smith and Thiemann are also questionable in this match, we believe that coach Alba will not introduce them to this match.

Efes must take advantage of this problem with injuries, wear and tear of visiting players, and one more day of rest compared to the visitors, in this double round and win this match without any problems, and score over 90 points.
