Baskonia Team News

Almost no one predicted that Baskonia will have a 3-0 record after three rounds in the Euroleague. Joan Penarroya’s team defeated Valencia, Partizan and Red Star. Now, a fight for a place in the quarterfinals is no longer an impossible mission. If they manage to qualify for top 8, it would be one of the biggest surprises this season.

At first, it seemed that Baskonia has one of the weakest rosters in 21st century, but the truth is a little different. Markus Howard is playing impressively and he is one of the biggest signings this summer, so it won’t be a surprise if the best European clubs are interested in him already. Darius Thompson transferred his excellent form from Eurocup to Euroleague, and players like Maik Kotsar, Vanja Marinkovic and Matt Costello found their role in new system.

For Baskonia, this will be the biggest test so far. It’s never easy to win three games in a row in the Euroleague, but the fact is that previous opponents were much weaker than Olympiacos. In order to overcome the Greek giant, they will have to play their best game of the season.

Olympiacos Team News

Where it left off last season, Olympiacos continued this year. In first three rounds, they showed the most of all teams and thus emphasized their candidacy for the Euroleague title. In just two weeks apart, they beat Barcelona and Real Madrid at road, a feat that not many have been able to achieve.

Sasha Vezenkov was MVP of the Euroleague second round, and he was also the best on Wednesday night when Olympiacos won in Madrid. Kostas Sloukas hit the winning shot, but the Bulgarian player carried his team from the start of the game. For years, this team characteristic has been the outstanding defense. However, everything works perfectly in offense as well. Isaiah Canaan replaced Tyler Dorsey and Alec Peters and Joel Bolomboy greatly improved power forward position.

When you beat Barcelona and Real Madrid at road, you surely travel with a lot of confidence to visit the third best Spanish team. If they play like in first three rounds, Olympiacos will be a big favorite to record a fourth triumph in the Euroleague.

Olympiacos leads 6-4 against Baskonia in the last 10 games that these two clubs played in the Euroleague against each other.

Baskonia vs. Olympiacos Prediction

Although both teams are at 3-0 after three rounds, Olympiacos showed incomparably more in the Euroleague. Their wins have more weight and they will be able to show that in Vitoria. They can play much better than Baskonia in defense and offense, and that’s why we predict their easy victory.
