Virtus Bologna Team News

After winning the Eurocup, the Virtus team secured their participation in the Euroleague again after many years. Virtus are looking for their first victory in this competition. Sergio Scariola’s team won the Italian Super Cup and entered the new season in a good mood.

But that good mood was spoiled by Monaco, that is, Mike James, with 26 points, causing them the first defeat of the season. In addition to the offensive rhapsody of James, Monaco shut down Virtus defensively, limiting them to 66 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 Ojeleya, former Celtics player arrived in the “student city”. Virtus has had a lot of problems with injuries this season. Toko and Teodosić are question marks for this match. Both are key players on the team.

To win this match, Virtus will have to pay a lot of attention to Bayern’s „pick“ game, from which the Bavarians are seriously profiting, making a surplus of their shooters.

Bayern unexpectedly fell easily at home in the first round. Itoudis did excellent homework and stopped all the advantages. Fener broke the rhythm that the Bayern team is forcing. A similar recipe should be done by Scariolo, strong in defense, and stops Bayern’s game in transition.

The Bayern are one of the teams that changed the least in their composition, the team was strengthened by Cassius Winston, Isaac Bonga, and Freddie Gillespie. Trinchieri gave the ball to Winston, who averaged over 25 points in two games of the German defense. But Fener stopped Winston and Bayern was defeated. Corey Walden is also playing great this season, and he and Lučić are a combination that contributes equally in defense and attack.

This season, Bayern miss Deshawn Thomas a lot, who will try to replace Bonga, reinforcement from the NBA. Bayern is looking for a game in transition a lot, and with their explosive defenders they will look for that in this match as well, from a strong defense to get easy points.

Both teams have problems with injuries. Shengelia and Awudu Abassa will not be in the squad for Virtus, while Miloš Teodosić is a question mark. Isaac Bonga will not be in the lineup for Bayern.
