Olimpia Milano Team News

The “models” from Milano have found the right rhythm, and have strung together six victories in both competitions. But in the last match of the Euroleague, in a very uncertain ending, they were defeated in Madrid by Real. That defeat put them quite far from the TOP 8. Although they have a very difficult schedule until the end of the Euroleague, if they had won this match, they could have fought equally for the playoffs, where they belong, looking at the squad they have. However, the composition of Armani this season is very much shaped by the health bulletin of the team. Namely, during the whole season they are missing a couple of main players. So Datome and Hall will not be in this match either, while Pangos was injured in the match against Real and will not be there for two weeks.

However, the breadth and quality of Milano team are not in question. A team that includes a large number of national team members and former NBA players. Shabazz Napier, who in a very short time became the leader of the team, proved to be a top reinforcement. Besides him, there are also Luwawu, Baron, Mitrou – Long, all respectable and sound names in the back positions. Under the basket is Hines, who has been one of the best defenders in the league for many years, while Davis and Melli, who have been struggling throughout the season, have found their rhythm.

This is a match for first place, where the winner will ensure the advantage of the home field throughout the playoffs, so we are expecting a real playoff match.

Virtus Bologna Team News

The team led by Sergio Scariolo is playing very erratically this season, and they depend a lot on the mood of the two main players, Milos Teodosic and Tornike Shengelia. Virtus is last year’s Eurocup winner, and during the last season, they started building a team for the Euroleague. Certain players such as Shengelia and Hacket paid off the clause to the Russian CSKA, to move to Bologna.

In the Euroleague, they are 13-16, which is one win more than Armani. Virtus has no middle ground or constants in its game. Either they get into an attacking rhythm and score almost 100 points, as was the case against Alba, or they “lock up” and cannot score up to 70 points, as was the case in Monaco. However, this season we have seen them much more often that they can’t find an attacking rhythm.

Now they are visiting a team that has one of the best defensive ratings in the last 5 rounds in the Euroleague. If Teodosic plays, Virtus will be close to victory, because when Teodosic plays, all players contribute much more.
