Maccabi Tel Aviv Team News

After four rounds in the Euroleague, Maccabi are at 3-1 and they looked more than solid so far. Maccabi defeated Zalgiris, Asvel and Monaco on their home court, while they lost in Istanbul against Fenerbahce. Now, they welcome Panathinaikos with the desire to achieve a fourth triumph in Tel Aviv.

Head coach Oded Kattash did a very good job. Maccabi signed 11 new players over the summer and it takes a grandmaster’s touch to put it all together in a very short period of time. Lorenzo Brown and Wade Baldwin carry this team offense, so Darrun Hilliard absence was not felt at all. Bonzie Colston has brought the necessary toughness, while Alex Poythress and Josh Nebo are feeling more than comfortable in Tel Aviv.

Maccabi will be the absolute favorite in this round. After three wins, it is quite realistic that they expect a fourth win against the team that was humiliated in Berlin last week. What they need to fix is the weak first half they had in every game in Tel Aviv so far.

Panathinaikos Team News

Panathinaikos also made a lot of changes between two seasons. Many new players have been signed, plus new head coach Dejan Radonjic is on the bench. He need time to implement his system and board management must be patient.

So far in the Euroleague, Panathinaikos recorded one win and three losses. They defeated Red Star in Belgrade and lost to Real Madrid, Monaco and Alba Berlin. A few days ago, Dwayne Bacon was signed. He will bring extra quality to their offense. Nate Wolters is back after injury and when you add Marius Grigonis, Derrick Williams, Mateusz Ponitka and Paris Lee, it’s clear that the quality is there.

In order to have a chance to win in Tel Aviv, Panathinaikos will have to fulfill all defensive tasks. They can certainly impose their rhythm at one point in the game, as every Maccabi opponent has done so far. The only question is whether they can slow down Baldwin and Brown when they get on their scoring streak.

H2H

This will be 30th clash between these two clubs in the Euroleague in 21st century. Maccabi leads 15-14 and they won last four games played in Tel Aviv against Panathinaikos.

Injuries

Darrun Hilliard is injured and won’t play for Maccabi. Dwayne Bacon is questionable, while all other players are available for Panathinaikos.

Maccabi Tel Aviv vs. Panathinaikos Prediction

With Wolters on the floor, Panathinaikos gained an additional dimension in offense. He will know how to control the rhythm and in a game like this, that is not a negligible factor. Visitors from Athens may have a chance to win and we believe that they will cover the handicap without problems.
