Olympiacos after huge loss in Italy will try to rebound against German champs in Greece.
Surprising result in Milan was not a big suprise. Olympiacos often fails as huge away favorite. Today they are going to take revenge for 68:82 loss in Bamberg and forget Milan result. All players are healthy and ready to produce good result at home.
“What we want to do, to do a restart, more aggression in defense, something we had yesterday (25/1), and bring the game to our measures of our defense ” – said Olympiacos coach.
Brose is possession-minded team, which doesn’t have big scorers and play collective basketball, but that doesn’t help against well-working defense, which is not doing mistakes and put constant pressure. This season they produced more than 74 points only to weak Maccabi defense and Galatasaray (another weak defense). Olympiacos is best home defense in Europe and they create many problems for Brose talent-less offense.
In Bamberg game pace was a slow one (141 attacks). Today it should be around 140-145 attacks, but this time I expect Olympiacos to defend much better than they did in Germany. I expect Brose to score 60-65 points and Oly should produce around 80 points.
