Olimpia Milano Team News

The team, led from the bench by the experienced Messina, achieves quite good results this season, compared to the game they are showing. They also struggled a lot in the match against ASVEL in the first round, but they win that game. Although they were losing in the first half, they turned that match around, and the great Billy Baron pulled them to victory.  Kevin Pangos decided this match, hitting a three-pointer in the last minute of the match.

Although they are winning, the game in the Italian championship is not good either, but it brings a result. The last match was won by Scafati away from home, but in the second half, they scored only 20 points. In every game, they had problems with “empty” minutes.

This season they have a serious reconstruction of the team and added the experienced Kevin Pangos, Stefano Tonut, Billy Baron, Naz Mitrou-Long, Deshaun Thomas, Johannes Voigtmann, and Brandon Davies to the already strong core of the team. All the famous Euroleague names.

In the match against Alba, they will be very envious of how Messina will stop Sikma and Alba’s field goal. The key player in that defense against Sikma will be Hines, who with his pressure should not allow Sikma to easily receive the ball and create from positions 4-5.

Alba Berlin Team News

Alba from Berlin has been one of the most atypical basketball teams in Europe for years. The system established by Aito was continued by his successor, Israel Gonzalez, who can be said to have added more speed and style of play for “more baskets” to Alba’s system.

In the first round of the Euroleague, they pretty much destroyed Belgrade’s Partizan on their home field. Alba did not change much this season, they brought reinforcements from Italy, Gabriele Procida, who immediately fit into the system enforced by Alba.

They play fast basketball, with a lot of possession, runs, and three-point shots. In this, Lo and Smith are especially leading, who, along with Luka Sikma, who creates from position 4, is the main strength of the team from Berlin.

In the German championship, they are also without mistakes, and almost every team scores 90 points. And this match will depend on how much Messina will allow Alba to run, if the “yellows” find their rhythm, the “Aramni” will be in trouble.

Olimpia Milano vs. Alba Berlin Prediction

Both teams have problems with injuries. Datome, Mitrou-Long, and Baldosso will not be in the squad for Milan, while Thomas is a question mark. Marcus Eriksson will not be in the squad for Alba. 

On paper, Olimpia is a big favorite at home, and they are expected to win. But Alba is a tricky team, different from the others, which if it finds its rhythm, can even spring a surprise and win this match. We think the handicap of 11.5 points is more than solid and the difference with which Milan will not win this match.
