Olimpia Milano

Since Ettore Messina arrived in Milan, this club has profiled itself as one of the best in Europe. Their desire is to become a regular contender for the Euroleague final four and two seasons ago they were one ball away from the finals of that competition.

After being swept by Virtus in the Serie A final in the same 2020/2021 season, Milano got their revenge in June this year. They defeated Virtus 4-2 in final and thus won domestic title. During this summer, several players were changed. Sergio Rodriguez, Malcolm Delaney, Troy Daniels and Ben Bentil left Italy. In their place, Kevin Pangos, Billy Baron, Stefano Tonut, Deshaun Thomas, Johannes Voigtmann and Brandon Davies were signed.

On paper, Milano looks more quality and compact than it was last season. They were eliminated by Anadolu Efes in the Euroleague quarterfinals and now they want to return to top four in Europe. This would mean a fight for the most valuable trophy in May 2023.

Virtus Bologna

Virtus returns to the Euroleague this season after 15 years. They won the Eurocup which allowed them to compete with the best clubs in Europe. One of the most deserving people for that success was Sergio Scariolo, who lead his team excellently.

For several years now, Virtus has been constantly investing a lot of money to reach the Euroleague. It finally paid off for them. The team was additionally strengthened during the summer. All important players such as Milos Teodosic, Marco Belinelli, Daniel Hackett, Toko Shengelia and Kyle Weems were retained. Some reinforcements were added to them, including Jordan Mickey, Gabriel Lundberg, Semi Ojeleye and Ismael Bako.

The desire and ambition of Virtus is to become a regular participant in the Euroleague, and not to play only this season. For something like that, it is necessary to be in top 8 which will be their goal. This game against Milano will be a great test before the start of the European commitments next week.

H2H

Last season, these two teams played a total of nine times against each other. Milano won five times including a 4-2 triumph in the final series of domestic championship.

Injuries

Kevin Pangos, Luigi Datome, Shavon Shields and Stefano Tonut won’t play for Milano in this game. Milos Teodosic, Toko Shengelia and Awudu Abass are not available to Virtus.

Olimpia Milano vs. Virtus Bologna Prediction

Given that this game will be played on a neutral court in Brescia and that Milano does not have four extremely important players, it’s not realistic for them to win convincingly. Virtus has enough quality to pull off a surprise. They are certainly able to cover eight-point handicap without too much trouble. At this point, a double digit triumph for Milano would be a real feat.
