Maccabi Tel Aviv Team News

This season, due to the extraordinary situation in Israel, Maccabi played its matches only in the Euroleague, without matches in the domestic championship, and they had much more space for recovery and regeneration, as well as the training itself, but last week the Israeli championship continued and Maccabi defeated Bnei Herzeliya. The problem for Maccabi is that they play their matches on a neutral ground in Belgrade, without fans. It will be the same this time when the Anadolu Efes team comes as their guests.

In the previous week, when there was a double round of the Euroleague, Maccabi had half success. First, they beat Asvel, then they were defeated by Virtus, and they played both games away. As in previous seasons, Maccabi plays attacking basketball and forces the game in transition, but they are not good defensively, although they have a lot of potential to be a real defensive force. They depend a lot on the back tandem Brown-Baldwin, who are struggling with injuries this season. Much more was expected from the Maccabi team this season, but the whole situation in Israel has disrupted them, and they are currently in ninth place with a record of 7-6, just like the Anadolu Efes team. An ideal opportunity for Oded Kattash’s team to make a breakthrough and take advantage of Efes’ shortened rotation.

Anadolu Efes Team News

The players of Anadolu Efes played two heroic games last week and achieved two victories in the Euroleague, which can “turn” their season around. Namely, Anadolu Efes is in big problems with injuries and they are missing as many as 8 players, these are all players who are the leaders of the game and legitimate members of the rotation. However, even with such a composition, they managed to beat the Panathinaikos team first as hosts. In that match, Jones dominated, and played the game of his career, thus neutralizing a desperate shot from distance by the Efes team. Erdem Can’s team also won on the road in Berlin, against Alba, after a fantastic second half. Although Alba had more width in its composition, the individual quality of Anadolu Efes players came to the fore, especially Shane Larkin who scored 32 points, while Daum connected 5 shots for three points in key moments and made the difference for Efes.

They continued the series of excellent results in the domestic championship against Fenerbahce. They beat a great rival and the key role was played by the local players. Although Thompson dominated with 21 points and added 5 rebounds and 5 assists, the key factors were Gazi and Osmani. Gazi scored 17 points, while Osmani added 14 points and 8 rebounds.

Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Anadolu Efes Prediction

Although Anadolu Efes has been playing with great confidence lately, we still think that Maccabi will win this match, rather than from the aspect of roster width. Efes plays in a short rotation, but they are very compact and play with great energy. However, we think that they have worn themselves out too much in the previous three matches and that Maccabi will come away with a safe victory.
