We can say that this season is quite successful for the Olympiacos team so far, but winning the title in the domestic championship would make this season even more successful. The team from Athens managed to “wake up” in the second part of the regular part of the Euroleague, and thanks to a great series of positive results, they even managed to qualify for the Final Four, where they were unhappily defeated by Anadolu Efes in the semifinals, which later became European champion. In the quarterfinals of the domestic championship, they managed to eliminate the Peristeri without much difficulty, thanks to the victories of 79:67 and 92:57. In those two games, we could see a really great game in defense and a very small number of turnovers, which is a clear sign that the Olympiacos team really cares about ending this season with a trophy. We are convinced that the players of the home team with an identical approach will play both games against Promitheas, and that they will fully justify the epithet of the big favorite.

Promitheas “fought on two fronts” this season, and we are not sure we can say that they left an overly great impression. In the Eurocup, they finished the competition in the first phase, considering that they managed to achieve only four victories in eighteen matches, which was enough for the last place in the group. In the domestic championship, they recorded twelve victories and twelve defeats in twenty-four matches, but we must mention the fact that they played very badly in the finish of the regular part of the competition (four defeats in the last five games). Despite their poor form, they managed to eliminate the AEK team in the quarterfinals, and we must say that they managed to prepare a big surprise. After winning 95:82 in the first away match, they were more successful at home with 77:75, and in those two matches, we could see the “two faces” of the Promitheas team. They rely on precision in shoots from a distance, and as soon as they start to miss, they immediately create unnecessary nervousness, which very often knows how to completely reverse the rhythm of the match.

Olympiacos vs Promitheas Prediction
Olympiacos and Panathinaikos are the main candidates for the title in the Greek basketball championship this season, but we still have to give preference to the team of Olympiacos, which despite its obligations in the Euroleague managed to achieve an incredible result of twenty-three wins and only one defeat in the domestic championship. They reached the semifinals without too many problems and having in mind the quality they have, it is to be expected that they will not bother too much against Promitheas. Promitheas has Agravanis and Grant on their team as players who can make the necessary difference on the field, while the rest of the team is below average. On the other hand, the Olympiacos team is made up of a large number of great individuals (Printezis, Sloukas, Vezenkov, Walkup), and it is really hard to expect Promitheas to be able to offer more serious resistance.
Olympiacos have shown a great game on defense many times this season, and if the players of the home team are concentrated enough, we believe that they will be able to limit the visiting team to less than seventy points.
