Maccabi Tel Aviv Team News

Although they were trailing by 13 points to Monaco in third quarter, Maccabi managed to win at home. Oded Kattash’s team played an outstanding fourth quarter and thus reached a very significant triumph in the Euroleague.

Maccabi will need some time until things settle down. They signed 11 new players, plus head coach was also changed. It usually takes a couple of months for the team to settle in, which means that whatever the Tel Aviv club does in October and November will be a bonus. Lorenzo Brown and Wade Baldwin represent one of the best backcourt tandems in Europe and it won’t be easy for any defense against them.

In this game, Maccabi will try to avoid what happened against Zalgiris in the opening round. They are once again big favorites on paper, they are playing in front of the home crowd and the most important thing for them is to gain an advantage very quickly, which they will increase until the end.

Asvel Team News

Asvel played solid three games in the Euroleague so far. In the first week, they were very close to beat Milan, but they failed. After that, they made a surprise by winning in Valencia, only to lose easily in Istanbul against Fenerbahce this week.

Compared to last season, Asvel has significantly reduced its investments. This roster is not as good as the one that won the French league in June. Much is expected from Nando De Colo, who has returned to his country, while Parker Jackson-Cartwright has yet to make his debut due to injury. It should be mentioned that Youssoupha Fall has been playing great so far and if he continues like that, Asvel will once again have a dominant player in the paint.

In order to make another surprise at road in the Euroleague, Asvel will need an outstanding defense in Tel Aviv, especially on Maccabi guards. If they let Brown and Baldwin to play at their pace, then they can only expect another convincing loss.

H2H

Maccabi Tel Aviv and Asvel played against each other five times in the past three years and Maccabi leads 3-2 in H2H. The Israeli team won both games last season.

Injuries

Darrun Hilliard is injured and won’t play for Maccabi in this match. The only absence at Asvel is Parker Jackson-Cartwright.

Maccabi Tel Aviv vs. Asvel Prediction

Maccabi is the favorite in this game with a reason, but the handicap seems a bit too high. Asvel is not as weak a team as it seems, and they showed that at road in Valencia. Also, a lot of new players in Maccabi means that there will be a lot of swings in the early phase of the season, so we believe that the visitors will cover this handicap.
