Olympiacos Team News

In the first round, the team from Piraeus already showed what a powerful team it is. Georgios Bartzokas’ team defeated Barcelona away from home, which is also considered one of the main favorites to win the Euroleague this year.

They didn’t change much this year. The team left Dorsey, who went to the NBA, but has already been signed by the Mavs, so we wouldn’t be surprised if he wears the red and white jersey again. Printezis ended his basketball career, while Jean-Charles and Hassan Martin left Piraeus. Oly brought the right reinforcements. One of the best shooters from the four positions, Alec Peters, and the great Isaiah Cannan, who after a solid NBA career and a great role in Unics, arrives as one of the best combo guards in Europe. He is excellent in tandem with Sloukas, and that duo made a big difference against Barcelona.

However, the keys to the team are in the hands of the Bulgarian national team member Sasha Vezenkov, who is also playing great this season. Oly plays solid in defense, but they also have a lot of width in the roster. The best example is Larentzakis’ roll in 4/4 in Barcelona, when he decided the match with his points.

Oly is the biggest favorite in the second round of the Euroleague, and Žalgiris is given little chance to threaten the red and whites in Piraeus.

Zalgiris Team News

“The Greens” from Kaunas want to forget the last season as soon as possible, which was one of the worst for them in recent times. They finished last in the Euroleague, while after a long time they remained without a trophy in the Lithuanian championship.

This season, they started strongly in the domestic championship, with four victories, and in the Euroleague, they almost won against the favored Maccabi away from home. The “greens from Kaunas” were just a little short of winning.

The team has changed quite a bit compared to last season. Coach Maksuytis decided to try to build a core with as many local players as possible. Brazdeikis returned from the NBA and proved to be a great reinforcement. He was not in the lineup in the last match against Lietkabelis, but he should be ready for this match. In addition to Brazdeikis, Edgaras Ulanovas, who has been one of the best two-way players in the league for years, has returned to the team, but lately, he has had problems with injuries.

However, the former Igokea player, Keenan Evans, who leads the attacks of Zalgiris excellently, and placed Lekavicus in the background, proved to be a welcome reinforcement.

Zalgiris this season proved to be a very strong team that does not give up, but against Olympiacos in Piraeus, they will be in a subordinate position.

Olympiacos welcomes this match with the strongest team, while Žalgiris will not have Geidraitis in the team, who injured his ankle.

Olympiacos in Piraeus is a very difficult team to beat. This season Olympiacos play so good, in addition to the defensive segment, Oly plays well in attack, so we expect Oly will win this match relatively easily
