    Date and time: Thursday, December 20, 2018, 20:00
    Betting house: Bet365 (odds at 19.12.2018, 23:00 hs.)

    Olympiacos (Greece) hosts Herbalife Gran Canaria (Spain) in one of the matches corresponding to the fourteenth day of Euroleague 2018-19, the highest European basketball competition at the club level.

    The game is scheduled for this Thursday, December 20, 2018 at 9:00 p.m. local time (8:00 p.m. in mainland Spain and 7:00 p.m. in Canary Islands) and will be held in the La Paz and Friendship Pavilion, a stadium located in Piraeus.


    Information Olympiacos

    The Greek team comes from becoming strong at the Palau Blaugrana, where they beat Barcelona (60-69) last Tuesday and thus chained their fourth consecutive joy, counting the double competition.

    In the Euroleague he is fifth with a positive balance of 8-5. Before visiting Barça, he had surpassed Turkish Anadolu Efes (88-81).

    The numbers of Olympiacos in the Euroleague: 8 wins, 5 losses, 1036 points in favor and 999 against. At home: 4 wins, 2 falls, 503 points scored and 486 conceded.

    In another order, we have in mind that the pupils of the American -nationalized Israeli- David Blatt lead the league of their country with a mark of 8-1. In their most recent presentation they beat home Kolossos Rhodes (67-86) and next Sunday they will receive Peristeri.

    For this commitment, coach Blatt would bet on the next five initial: Williams-Goss, Spanoulis, Papanikolau, Printezis and Milutinov. In addition, it will be available to Leday, Timma, Vezenkov, Strelnieks, Toupane, Mantzaris and Bogris.


    Information Gran Canaria

    The Granca put the brakes on his back by losing at home in front of the motivated Baskonia (71-84), direct rival in the fight to get into the playoffs of this Euroleague.

    Previously he had achieved three consecutive celebrations in the European competition: 95-85 Vs Buducnost Voli, 86-94 Vs Olimpia Milano and 71-75 Vs Darussafaka (the last two, as a visitor).

    The numbers of Gran Canaria in the Euroleague: 5 wins, 8 losses, 1068 points in favor and 1154 against. Outside the home: 2 wins, 4 falls, 476 converted points and 532 received.

    In another order, it is worth knowing that the squad that now directs Victor Garcia occupies the 14th place of the classification in the ACB League. He registers a negative record of 4-8 and his campaign is obviously poor.

    Thinking of what is coming, Víctor García will not be able to count on a key piece like the American forward Chris Evans, who recently rescinded his contract with the Canarian institution. As a starting game, will be available American power forward Luke Fischer, already recovered from an injury.

    The probable starting quintet of Gran Canaria: Radicevic, Strawberry, Rabaseda, Tillie and Pasecniks. The call is completed with Eriksson, Paulí, Oliver, Fischer, Báez, Balvin and Vene.

    It will be the first confrontation in history between the two by Euroleague.


    Previous Olympiacos Vs Gran Canaria

    The bookmakers are inclined to a wide and even exaggerated previous favoritism (see bets with handicap or Over / Under to find more profitable shares) of Olympiacos, which comes very well to this game but has shown flaws in some of its games and far from being impregnable in Piraeus. It is clear that Gran Canaria won 3 fewer matches than their current opponent so far in the tournament and that has much less history, but still has weapons to generate some complications. For example, in the statistics at the collective level we must mention that El Granca scores an average of 82.2 points per game against the 79.7 that makes Olympiacos. Defensively, however, the Greeks mark a clear advantage: they receive an average of 76.8 points per game against the 88.8 that fit the Spaniards.

    In the individual aspect, the great figure of Olympiacos is the young Serbian center Nikola Milutinov, who registered 18 points and 14 rebounds against Barcelona and averages 10.7 points per game in the tournament. Giorgos Printezis (11.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 54.4% in doubles) and the experienced Vasileios Spanoulis (11.2 points and 5.2 assists) stand out in that regard. On the other hand, the Gran Canaria will have to fight without the US base Clevin Hannah, who has several matches as a base but continues to be the top scorer of his team in the Euroleague (10.9 points and 4.5 assists per match). As if that were not enough, Evans will not be the second pillar in offense (10.3 points), so the Swedish forward Marcus Eriksson (9 points and 46.3% in triples) should improve after his poor production against Baskonia.
