Real Madrid Team News 

Last season, Real showed that the system and planned work bring titles and great results. Although the Madrid team had many problems during the season, both with injuries and poor results, they remained faithful and consistent with their plan, and in the end, they lost the Euroleague title by one ball. Just like last season, they entered this year quite slowly, but we do not doubt that they will get up and time their form for the most important thing.

They also have problems with injuries, a couple of players are recovering from injuries, so they are not at their peak yet, but coach Jesus Mateo has no reason to worry. But the defeats against Olympiacos and Baskonia in the Endesa  League are enough of an alarm for Real to play one good game against Virtus.

The main players this season are certainly Edy Tavares, who dominates under the basket and controls the entire defense, and reinforcement Džanan Musa, who proved to be an excellent choice and the safest option in the attack. The problem for Real is the bad form of Lull and Hezonja.

Real has a lot of width in the team and Mateo will try to refresh the team, and in addition to Musa and Tavares, try to include another attacking option.

Virtus Bologna Team News 

After winning the Eurocup, the Virtus team ensured their participation in the Euroleague again, after many years. Sergio Scariola’s team won the Italian Super Cup, but the games they provide this season are not at the level of the roster they have. Namely, in the course of this season, only Bayern won in the Euroleague, but they did not score over 70 points against anyone. Which is a big problem. The defenders do not contribute much to the game of the team from Bologna. This problem was best demonstrated against Partizan, where they were defeated by almost 30 points.

They have seriously stepped up this season. Ife Lundberg from CSKA came, and Jordan Mickey from Zenit. The already existing roster, which is quite strong, received reinforcements from the NBA league. Defensive specialist, and one of the strongest physical players Semi Ojeleye, former Celtics and Bucks player arrived in the “student city”.

Virtus has a lot of problems with injuries this season, the main player Tornike Shengelia was missing from the Eurobasket, but according to the announcements, he will be ready for this match. Which is of key importance for the Virtus team, because Toko contributes a lot to the racket game, and to the jump itself.

Real Madrid vs. Virtus Bologna Prediction 

Rudy Fernandez will be absent from the Real team, while Adam Hanga is questionable. While there will be no Abbas for Virtus, but Toko Shengelia is expected to return.

According to bookmakers, Real is set as a big favorite, probably the biggest in the entire 5 rounds of the Euroleague, but we think that the Virtus team has enough quality and width in the rotation to threaten Real, and not to lose 13 points, which is a big limit.
