Olympiacos vs Zalgiris Kaunas will be the eighth round of this year Euroleague which will take place in Peace and Friendship Stadium (Greece). So far both teams are not fulfilling their potential and suffered some unexpected loses. So this match is very important for both sides. Please read our thoughts about this interesting Euroleague Olympiacos vs Zalgiris Kaunas match, here below.
This season Olympiacos are looking, even more, weaker than last one. It seems that glorious days when Greeks were among elite Europe teams have come to an end. Oly already suffered 5 defeats and won only 2 times, so far it looks like they have no chances of reaching top8. Even though Oly doesn’t play in the A1 League and have even more time to prepare for Euroleague fights, it seems that this season team is reaching the bottom. Nevertheless, they have shown that underestimating them might be a mistake, as they won against CSKA in an away game. So this time the only advantage the Greeks will have will be their own arena.
Zalgiris this season are looking a bit better if we are talking about their performance. However, they still lack stability and focus. Zalgiris managed to lose against Zenitas in a home arena after two days wok against Fenerbahce in Turkey. It only shows how unpredictable the team is and in the final stage it might be a disadvantage. In the previous round Lithuanians lost against Barca, but it wasn’t a poor performance. Barca won only by Higgins and Mirotic individual performances. Nevertheless, now Zalgiris is facing a struggling opponent, and it is a good chance for them, to grab 2 points.
Olympiacos ve Zalgiris H2H
Both teams faced each other 20 times in the past 11 years, so far the result is equal to 10:10, but the last 4 meetings ended with Olympiacos loses, so this is a good motivation for Lithuanians.
