Olimpia Milano vs Bayern Munich: Prediction and Betting Tips
Olimpia Milano pull off an amazing first win
After trailing by 19 points in the first half and 15 points at the end of the third quarter, Milano amazingly turned it around in the fourth quarter and won by one point in a nail-biting finale where Milano were down by one point with one second remaining and Zach Leday scored on the buzzer to give the Italian side a 1-0 lead in the series.
Milano were inspired by Spaniard Sergio Rodriquez in the final quarter whose penetrations and 13 points were one of the main reason for the Milano comeback. Zach Leday was the best scorer for the hosts who shot 42% from all distances and scored just six shots from the arc out of 25 attempts.
Bayern Munich needs to bounce back
The Germans were heartbroken after leading all of the game until the final second and still losing the game. Italian coach Andrea Trinchieri has to get his team regrouped and forget about the first game. The German side looked a bit sluggish in the final quarter as they couldn’t maintain their 19 point lead till the end.
Bayern Munich shot better than their season average of 38% from the three-point range but they couldn’t withstand the Italian surge in the final quarter. Bayern have now lost all their three meetings with Milano this season and they can’t afford to lose the fourth one as that will make this series 2-0 to the Italians.
- Milano has won two games in a row at home
- Bayern have not won against Milano this season
Olimpia Milano vs Bayern Munich Prediction
Usually, after the scenario that we saw in the first match, the winner will have a confidence boost in the next game and make sure they don’t fall into the same mistakes that they did in the first three-quarters of the match. This will be the case with Milano as even though they won, experienced coach Ettore Messina will work on fixing the problems they faced throughout the game.
In the first game, we predicted Milano to win by under 5.5 points and we were correct. We believe it will be a close match again and will back the total points scored in the match.
