Barcelona vs Olympiacos by Tipitip
Barcelona will host Olympiacos in the 5th round of Euroleague. Barcelona is in a very bad shape at the moment with losing 5 in a row. Good news for Barcelona before this match is that Victor Claver and Rakim Sanders are ready to play. They have a good fixture ahead, in which they will play 4 home matches out of 5. IMO, this fact will make them more motivated. But as Adam Hanga stated, their biggest problem lies in their defence. This is mostly because of Huertel's lack of defense ability. On the other hand, Olympiacos is on a hot streak with winning last 7 games. I watched both teams in previous rounds. Olympiacos showed a good performance during the pre season and now they benefited from a well prepared pre season. Until this round they have played only 1 game in away, which was against Maccabi and they have barely won by 1 point. After losing Matt Lojeski, they couldn't find a player to replace his 3 point threat. Hollis Thompson is a player, who loves attack to the rim and he needs time to imrove his shooting beyond the arc. I watched Barcelona's first game, which was against Panathinaikos. They performed a decent performance in the second half and they outscored 22 points in that half. If they managed to play like this second half in this game, I believe that Barcelona will get the needed victory with a huge fan support. My pick is Barcelona to win (2 way) @1.81 .
