Zalgiris vs Olimpia Milano should be a very exciting 26th round of the Euroleague match, which will be held at Zalgiris Arena, in Kaunas. This will be an interesting match between two good teams, who are very close to reaching the playoff spot. To have more insights on this Euroleague Zalgiris vs Olimpia Milano match, please check out the preview below.

Zalgiris

Zalgiris (10-15) have suddenly become a real playoff contender, after having such a weak start of the season. Kaunas Zalgiris were only with 3 victories and 9 losses at some moment earlier this season, but things have changed since then and now we’re looking at the absolutely different team. Zalgiris improved their shooting percentages and overall team play, which required some time due to pre-season additions. Zalgiris have won 4 out of last 5 matches played in Euroleague and is one of the hottest teams at the moment. With the current form Zalgiris may be more than just a playoff contender as they’re always in close range of any opponent they face. Zalgiris is a clear favorite for Friday’s match, but everything will have to be proven on the court.

Olimpia Milano

Olimpia Milano (11-14) is one of the worst teams of the tournament at the moment. It’s an absolutely different situation compared to Zalgiris, as Olimpia Milano started the season strong and there were a lot of hopes for this team. Anyway, all of it went to dust as the team is losing to most of the opponents in both the Euroleague and Italy National league. Even though the roster of the team is a strong one, the lack of team play and bad defense, Olimpia Milano just can’t find the way to victories. Olimpia Milano have lost 4 out of last 5 matches played. They’ve also lost 10 out of 12 matches played on the road. Friday’s match won’t get any easier in Zalgiris Arena, so Olimpia’s chances to win the match are very limited.
