Second day of the 8 Euroleague race with many interesting matches. In one of them Olympiacos has been welcoming the SEF's evil demon in recent years Zalgiris.
Olympiacos, who comes from two crashes and even inside his stadium, does not say. Okay Maccabi and Efes are great teams but the way the Piraeus players are treated is at least funny. Generally games start well but over time performance drops and when the opponent passes forward there is no slight reaction. I have also emphasized in previous analyzes that the roster is new and needs games to get chemistry. But without league games the team will be slow to become a 'team' when most of the new players are of questionable quality. Papanikolaou returns, whose energy the team needs. But Kouzmiskas had to say goodbye, and he would continue in Kuban.
On the other hand, Zalgiris remains the well-known Zalgiris of Yasikevitsius who despite all player transfers remains a compact team. He generally had a difficult schedule at first even though he had more at home. However, the score is not bad as it lost games that were the favorite but also won off-plan victories like the one in City against Fener. The latter looks improved and it seems that as time goes on the coach's work will become increasingly visible who can take on the best of players with an exemplary Lendey who is another player this year for sure.
summarizing I think Olympiacos has a significant offensive problem even with the wiser teams, let alone Zalgiris. που has taken the air with 5 wins in the last 6 matches. It is a tough team but with teams playing defense it is getting dark.
The point I choose is ... Zalgiris (-2.5 & Under 157.5 pts) in performance 3.06 at stoiximan.
