- 2 Does Alba Berlin stand a chance in the EuroLeague?
- 3 Key game details
Alba Berlin and Olimpia Milano combine for only one win in the first four rounds of the EuroLeague season. Their confidence is not on the desirable level but the state of emergency will kick in.
Prediction 1: Alba Berlin +6.5 @ 17/20 (1.85)
Alba Berlin is simply not on the demanded level to be competitive in the EuroLeague with the current roster. Head coach Israel Gonzalez has major issues to get the best out of his players and that may cost his job if they fail again. Olimpia Milano has a couple of experienced players who can make a difference in this one. Nikola Mirotic is still searching for his rhythm and this game may give him a chance to score a lot. Olimpia Milano is definitely the favourite to win but still, Alba Berlin should be able to cover the +6.5 points spread.
Prediction 2: Nicolo Melli over 5.5 points @ 17/20 (1.85)
Nicolo Melli has scored a total of 10 points in the first three games for Olimpia Milano this season. Last week, he took only one shot against Real Madrid in 18 minutes on the floor. There is no doubt that Melli is still a solid scorer who can hit outside shots as well finish from the paint. He will need to step up big time for his team and the game against Alba Berlin is a perfect opportunity for him to score at least six points.
Does Alba Berlin stand a chance in the EuroLeague?
Alba Berlin is one of the teams that regularly plays in the EuroLeague every season, but it has been a while since they were a Playoff contender. They finished 16th last season with a 11-23 record and things do not look more promising this season as well. They signed a couple of players in the offseason, but it seems like they may be at the very bottom this season.
Alba Berlin news, injuries, and starting lineups
Alba Berlin is one of only two teams that has yet to win in the EuroLeague this season. Head coach Isreal Gonzalez is on a hot seat and he may be the next one to get sacked if the German team losses this game. It is a fact that Alba Berlin had a tough week with two road games in Bologna and Monaco but the 0-4 record is unacceptable.

Olimpia Milano news, injuries, and starting lineups
Olimpia Milano has a 1-2 record so far in the EuroLeague. They stood no chance in the last game against Real Madrid losing 88-71. They bounced back with a 79-75 win against Tortona in the LNB League, but this team was built to win in the elite competition. Nikola Mirotic is not on the expected level or at least he has yet to find a way to carry the team to the victory.
