To have more insights on this Euroleague Barcelona – Milano match, please check out the preview below.
Barcelona (24-10) has won the regular season by an inch, but that led them to a very exciting series against St. Petersburg Zenit. The series against the Russian team was very interesting to see not only because Zenit fought well, but it was a very good experience for Šarūnas Jasikevičius as a coach, to learn from the master strategist Xavier Pascual itself. This Barcelona’s roster is one of the most expensive rosters of the tournament, which includes many most known names in European basketball, so they will definitely come into this match as favourites to win.
Milano Olimpia (21-13) have finished the regular season in the 4th spot. Olimpia had the exact scoreline as their first-round opponents Bayern Munich, but this spot played a huge role in their matchup as Olimpia had the home-court advantage. Every team which played on the home court won in this series, which led to Milan overcoming Bayern 3-2. This year Milan Olimpia is a joy to watch as they play a lot more coordinated and smarter compared to previous seasons and the core of the team had a lot of time to play together. It will be a huge challenge overcoming Barcelona, but this Milano team have a great coaching staff and a strong group of experienced and talented players, so this match will be very interesting.
