Olympiacos have done much more this season than anyone expected before the start. In the Euroleague, they were predicted to finish around 10th place, and they reached the Final Four, where they lost against Anadolu Efes in the semifinals with a buzzer-beater triple by Vasilije Micic. In the Greek Cup final game, they defeated Panathinaikos by 81:73, and they will now try to defeat their biggest rival again in the Greek League finals. If that happens, Olympiacos can boast that this is one of the most successful seasons for them in the last ten years. Head coach Georgios Bartzokas did a great job. In this team, there is no individual player on whom everything depends, as was the case in previous years when the superstar was Vassilis Spanoulis. Everyone has their role in the offense, while the greatest strength and the greatest quality of this team is an extremely strong defense. In the previous four clashes between these teams, Panathinaikos never scored more than 73 points, which speaks enough about Olympiaco’s defensive strength.

After Panathinaikos lost to Olympiacos in mid-April this year and thus lost first place in the Greek league and home-court advantage in this final series, owner Dimitrios Giannakopoulos has decided to fire the entire sports management. Head coach Dimitris Priftis, general managers Dimitris Diamantidis and Fragiskos Alvertis, plus technical director Nikos Pappas were fired. Georgios Vovoras has been appointed as interim head coach, while Argyris Pedoulakis has become general manager and will have the freedom to put together a team for the next season. Panathinaikos has been recording very poor results in the Euroleague for several years, which is not in line with the club’s reputation. The fact is that investments are the lowest in the 21st century, but even so, the results are below all realistic expectations. Panathinaikos also had problems in the semifinals of the Greek league, as they lost twice to Larisa, so they reached the finals only after the decisive fifth game. In any case, the situation and atmosphere within the team is not good before the start of the final series.

Oly vs. PAO Prediction
Olympiacos is a much better team than Panathinaikos this season and there is no drop in intensity in games like this. It is to be expected that the home team will play their best basketball from the beginning and it won’t be a surprise if they have double-digit lead by half time.
