ASVEL Team News
After a series of two victories, Asvel was badly defeated by Belgrade’s Partizan. Apart from the opening few minutes of the game, they were not a factor in this match. It can be said that coach Parker tried to surprise Obradovic, and placed young Risacher as the primary defender on Panter, who, despite all his size and speed, did not do well against Partizan’s best defender. After Panter, Lessort joined the attack and the game went in only one direction. The most effective player in the ASVEL team was Pons with 14 points.
Before this defeat, ASVEL had beaten Fener and Milano, which speaks volumes about the quality of the team from Lyon. The main star of the team is Nando de Colo, who has been injured lately. ASVEL changed its composition. The team was strengthened by the experienced Dee Bost, who replaced Jackson-Cartwright, who did not manage at the Euroleague level.
ASVEL is a physically and athletically dominant team, and defensively they can respond to all demands.
Virtus Team News
In the previous round, Virtus played against another Belgrade rival, Crvena zvezda. But unlike ASVEL, Virtus played perhaps the best game this season and they easily defeated Zvezda. They made great use of every defensive failure of Red Star, especially the absence of Ognjen Kuzmic, and Jaiteh made the difference under the basket, while Pajola attacked Vildos and Nedovic from the low post.
Virtus has been playing very smart lately. The attack is led by Milos Teodosic, who takes responsibility depending on the need. He plays with his teammates, especially Jaiteh, but also pulls his team back in terms of points. Scariollo has put together a very experienced team. The trio from CSKA, Shengelia, Hacket, and Lundberg, have arrived, and they contribute a lot on both sides of the pitch.
Virtus had offensive problems this season, but lately, they have raised their level in attack and are scoring almost 90 points on average.

ASVEL vs Virtus Prediction
The Asvel team is one of the best defensive teams in the league, and we believe that in this match they will be able to slow down the Virtus team, which struggled a lot with the attack at the beginning of the season. That’s why under 160 total points in the game is our choice for this match.
Kick-off time: Friday, 03.02.2023. 21:00 CET
