Olympiacos hoping to continue their good start 

Three-time Euroleague winners Olympiacos are one of the most successful Greek teams. In addition, the Red and Whites have won 12 Greek championships and nine cups. However, the Greek team didn’t qualify for the final for of the Euroleague in the past three seasons.

Hence, a good start was important for coach Georgios Bartzokas and they did just that. In fact, a 25 point demolition of Baskonia (75-50) in their first match was proof that Olympiacos mean business. It was a great display by Bartzokas’s team as they forced Baskonia to commit 20 turnovers.

Olympiacos Key Stats

  • Olympiacos made 29.6% of their shots from the arc 
  • The Red and Whites committed just six turnovers
  • 11 steals show Olympiacos’ defensive aggressiveness

Real Madrid will be ready for a tough trip 

Undoubtedly Real Madrid are the most the biggest club in Europe not just in football but also in basketball. Notably, ten Euroleague titles and 35 Spanish championships make the Spanish giants the record holders for those titles. 

Already, coach Pablo Laso’s team started their season with a seven-match winning streak. During their first Euroleague game, Real beat the reigning champions Anadolu Efes. In any case, coach Laso knows it’s a difficult trip as they lost two of their last three trips to Athens.

Real Madrid Key stats

  • Real made 64.5% of their two-point shots in their match against Efes
  • Very good teamwork let Real have 19 assists
  • Only two turnovers in the whole match is remarkable by Real

Olympiacos vs Real Madrid Prediction

One thing is for sure, this will be the most exciting match of the Euroleague second round. As we covered above, all of the last four games in Athens were close. Moreover, two of them went into extra time.

Coupled with both teams wanting to maintain their winning start, we expect a tough defensive game. Then again, there are great scorers on either side and hence the over 153 total points bet at Vbet is probable.

Accordingly, for our prediction, we will back over 153 points with good odds value of 1.76. In addition for our second bet, we are going with the bookie’s favorites Real Madrid to win.
