In the 5th match of the quarterfinal match of the Euroleague basketball playoffs, the players of Olimpia and Bayern will come face to face. Will Munich be able to win this game?
The Milan team got rid of the label of the Euroleague middleweight. The team from Italy spent the regular season at a very respectable level and managed to advance ahead of schedule to the playoffs of the tournament, taking fourth place. In the first knockout game, Ettore Messina's team narrowly escaped defeat by Bayern Munich. They had a shock fourth quarter and beat the Germans by a one-point margin. The second game was played according to the scenario of "Milan" and ended with the score 80: 69.
"Bayern" can be considered the main opening of the regular season 2020/2021. A registered outsider managed to break into the elite of European basketball. For the first time in its history, the team took part in the play-off stage and managed to beat such authorities as Real Madrid and Fenerbahce in the standings. In Munich, the team of Trinkieri took advantage of the home floor and equalized the score in the series. In the first match on their own field, they won with a score of 85: 79, and in the second - 85:82.
Statistics and figures:
- The hosts are the favorites of the meeting;
- The score in the series is 2: 2;
- The last meeting ended with the score 85: 82 in favor of "Bayern".»;
- The opponents won 3 victories in 5 meetings.
Four games in the playoff round once again proved the equality of the teams in the class. We expect that the fifth game will also take place on a counter course. Admittedly, I will go to Munich with a handicap of 6.5 points. We will make our forecast for this event.
