Monaco Team News

In their debut season in the Euroleague, Monaco reached quarterfinals. They were one game away from final four, and their ambitions grew a lot. During this summer, they did an excellent job and rightfully hope for an even bigger step forward.

Mike James remained in Monaco as the absolute leader and players such as Jordan Loyd, Elie Okobo, John Brown and Adrien Moerman were signed. At this moment, Monaco has one of the best backcourts in Europe and the James-Okobo-Loyd trio can destroy any opponent. In the first round, they outclassed Virtus in Bologna and thus showed all the potential they possess. Game against Anadolu Efes will give an even clearer picture of where Monaco stands in relation to the best clubs in the Euroleague.

For a win against Anadolu Efes, Monaco need a spirited offense and a good defense. Head coach Sasa Obradovic will have the task to find a way how to slow down Vasilije Micic, because the success of his team on Thursday evening will depend on it.

Anadolu Efes Team News

Back to back Euroleague champion started 2022/2023 season with an easy win against Red Star in Istanbul. Anadolu Efes doesn’t want to stop at two titles and they made it known to everyone during the summer when they kept all key players and signed Will Clyburn.

In a recent survey that was conducted, Clyburn arrival to Anadolu Efes is considered the best move on the market of all Euroleague clubs. Big problem for head coach Ergin Ataman is that Shane Larkin won’t play until December due to injury, so Clyburn and Micic will have to carry everything on their backs in first two months. Apart from those two, Efes doesn’t have too many ball handlers and if they face defenses that can slow down the mentioned two players, they could have problems.

Against Red Star, Efes defense was more than good. That’s the approach they’ll have to have in all games, especially until Larkin returns. Without him, offensive potential is lower and it’s not realistic that reigning Euroleague champion wins many games with a large number of points as it usually does.

H2H

Last season, these two teams played the only two head-to-head games in their history. Home team won both times. Monaco triumphed 102:80 on its floor and Efes celebrated in Istanbul 98:77.

Injuries

Shane Larkin won’t play for Anadolu Efes, while all other players are available for both coaches.

Monaco vs. Anadolu Efes Prediction

At the moment, Monaco has more offensive potential than Anadolu Efes. Defensively, home team can also play at a high level, especially now when they have Brown in their roster. This leads us to the conclusion that they should emerge victorious in this game, perhaps easier than some think.
