Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Olympiacos vs Virtus Bologna
Olympiacos suffered their second consecutive on-the-road defeat after losing to Anadolu Efes in the previous round. The Greek side is fifth in the Euroleague table with a 7-4 win/loss record. Despite the loss, Olympiacos have a better away record with 4-2 than at home with 3-2.
In their last match with Anadolu Efes, the Red and Whites made 44.6% of their shots from all distances which is lower than their season’s average of 49%. Olympiacos are coming into this game after a big win over arch-rivals Panathinaikos in the Greek league over the weekend.
It hasn’t been the best season for Virtus Bologna as they recorded their third loss in a row by going down to Red Star in round 11. The two-time Euroleague champions are currently in the 14th position with a 4-7 win/loss record and have lost four of their six away games.
Despite being a relatively fine shooting team with an average of 46.3%, Bologna’s defense allows 77.5 points for the opponents to score while their scoring average is 75.0. We could see that in their last game with Red Star where they made 46.9% of their shots but still lost the game.
