This season Panathinaikos are lacking stability, however, so far they have 7 wins and only 4 losses. Of course, the team started playing much better when Pitino returned to coach them. Also, Pao is showing very good results playing at home with only two losses at home this season. However, the opponent is also starting to show solid results, so this should be a very interesting defensive game, very important how Pappas and Calathes will perform, because both players know what it means to play against Olympiacos, if they will manage to improve their performance, Panathinaikos should not have any problems.
Olympiacos started the season in a worst possible way, however then the team started to improve, victories against CSKA, Zalgiris, Alba and Olimpia have shown, that the Greeks are not planning to end their season after the first round. However, the opponent once again is tough and also is playing in their own arena. Unlike before, Olympiacos this season the key weapon is three-point shots, but knowing how Greece derbies are going, the main thing should defence. If Olympiacos won’t be able to stop Calathes and Pappas, there might be sad consequences. Also, Oly is starting to concentrate their game under the rim and it makes them even more dangerous than before. So this should be a very interesting game.
