18:45, Apr 30 2021

Olimpia Milano vs Bayern Munich prediction for Tuesday’s Euroleague playoff clash at Mediolanum Forum in Milano. Fourth-placed Olimpia Milano host fifth-placed Bayern for this first match of the Euroleague playoffs. Read along for our free prediction and betting tips

Olimpia Milano hoping to be on their long-range shooting form

Milano are back at the Euroleague playoffs for the first time since 2014 and are looking for their first final four berth in 29 years. In the H2H matches during the regular season, Milano won both matches, for that reason they have the home-court advantage even though both teams finished with the same 21 matches winning record. This is the first of a best of five-game series.

Milano have had an unstable season having beaten top teams like Real Madrid, Fenerbahce, and Efes and losing to teams who didn’t make it to the playoffs like Lyon, Zenit, and Baskonia. They are a very good scoring team being fourth in total match points scored in the Euroleague with 81 points per game and are the second in the league at the three-point distance.

Bayern in their first-ever final eight playoffs

In their first-ever appearance in the Euroleague playoffs, Bayern tend to be at their best especially that they lost both of their regular-season matches against Milano. Bayern have lost two of their last five matches and have lost nine of their 17 away matches this season.

Bayern are eighth in the league with 38% shooting from all distances. They have to improve in this aspect if they want to go far in this series. They have to improve their shooting from the arc as well especially against Milano who are the second-best in that range. Coach Andrea Trinchieri needs to strengthen his defense as his team has been letting in over 83 points in three of their last five games.

Key Stats

  • Milano have lost two of their last five home matches
  • Bayern have lost three of their last five away matches

Olimpia Milano vs Bayern Munich Prediction

Bayern have done very well to reach the fifth position in the regular season after passing teams like Real Madrid and Fenerbahce. Coming into this game, Bayern had a good win in their last Euroleague game against Barcelona who played most of the time with their reserves.

Milano on the other hand have the home-court advantage but the fact that the matches are being played without fans due to covid restrictions, the home teams are not able to put the pressure that their fans would on visiting teams. That is why we have seen so many away wins this season. But still, we see Milano as a better team and will be keen to get the first win at home

We predict Milano will win this first game.
