Bayern Munich vs Olimpia Milano: Prediction and Betting Tips
Bayern Munich need to improve to get back in the series
Bayern will think they deserved to win the first game of this series as they were leading by 19 points in the third quarter. But a slump in the fourth quarter saw the German side suffer an on the buzzer loss by one point. The second game was a different story though as Bayern trailed during the whole game to their hosts and lost in the end by 11 points.
Bayern have averaged 73.5 points on 40.8% two-point shooting and 13 assists in the first two games. They were averaging 78.3 points on 51% two-point shooting 16.4 assists in the regular season. Coach Andrea Trinchieri will have to work on those aspects and improve them if they want to get back into this tie as they host their first-ever Euroleague playoff game at the Audi Dome.
Olimpia Milano can still improve
Milano have done their job in the first two matches and travel to Munich with a commanding 2-0 lead in the series. The Italian side had to fight hard in the first match but thanks to Sergio Fernandez’s inspiration, they managed to win by one point. Milano have now won five straight matches in all competitions and have scored over 79 points in all those games.
Milan were second in the Euroleague in three-point shooting accuracy during the regular season with 41.6% but coach Ettore Messina’s team dropped that averaged during the first two games as they made just 13 of 45 from the arc with an average of 29%. Of course, Messina will be delighted that his team still won those two games but if they raise their average from the arc they are in for a clean sweep.
- Bayern Munich have lost their last two home matches in the German league
- Bayern Munich are averaging 78 points per game in the Euroleague this season
- Milano have won their last three of four away matches in all competitions
- Milano are the third team in the Euroleague with the most points scored with 81 points
Bayern Munich vs Olimpia Milano Prediction
Bayern coach Trinchieri knows his team has to find a much better form than the last game and similar to the first three-quarters of the first match. 15 turnovers were just too many and Bayern have to improve on that.
Milano on the other hand showed how they have improved in recent months and that their qualification to the playoffs was not by chance. We think the defense will be key and thus we expect a low-scoring match.
