Real Madrid vs Anadolu Efes: Prediction and Betting Tips
Real Madrid to bounce back
Coach Pablo Laso finds himself and his team in a very difficult situation in their playoff series against Efes as they trail by 2-0 losing their first two games in Istanbul by 27 and 23 points. Los Blancos couldn’t cope with the solid defense of the Turkish side and scored just 65.5 points on average in both matches. Real were shooting just 34% and 38% in the first two games.
Real Madrid have now lost three of their four meetings this season in the Euroleague against Efes. In their last meeting in Madrid during the regular season, Efes won that match 83-108 in yet another sweep by the Turkish side. Coach Laso has a lot of work to do as his team are not able to find easy shots after hitting just four three points from 25 attempts in game two.
Anadolu Efes looking for a clean sweep
Anadolu Efes have established themselves as one of the contenders to go far in this season’s Euroleague. Efes have now won five of their last six matches in the Euroleague. Coach Ergin Ataman’s players shot an incredible 60% from the ar in game two bettering their season average of 40% with a significant margin.
Keeping their opponents under 69 points in both of the first two games is also a big accomplishment by Efes as no other team this season in the Euroleague and the ACB has been able to do that. The main reason for the two wins for Efes has been their shooting, their Rebounding, and very high-intensity defense on their opponents. Can coach Ataman’s team maintain their form?

Real Madrid vs Anadolu Efes Prediction
Real Madrid seems to have a big difficulty in beating Efes in their last three matches. With Efes shooting with a very high percentage, we think they will be able to come to WiZink center and play for a third win.
Coach Laso will rely on his experienced players Llull and Fernandez. If these two deliver a good game, Real may have a chance to win otherwise coach Laso has to find other solutions.
We think under 160 points will be scored again in this match.
