The Greens from Greece need to keep winning
Panathinaikos have a 9-7 record overall in the Euroleague, which contains a 5-5 record in the regular season and the team has been on fine form in the Top 16. They hold a 4-2 record so far, and they will be keen to upgrade this to a 5-2 record with this home game. With an average of 76.3 points per game, they have the firepower to take down their opponents, but it is worth noting that Belgrade have scored an average of 76.2 points per season. This is a game between two sides that score at a similar rate.
AJ Slaughter is the top man for Panathinaikos so far this campaign, averaging 11.7 points per game while Esteban Batista has provided an average of 6.1 assists per game this season. Diamtidis has also chipped in, offering up an average of 5.7 assists so far this campaign.
Panathinaikos are currently second in the A1, sitting with a 13-2 record. In their most recent domestic outing, Panathinaikos won by a score of 90-65 against Kolossos.
Things are tough for the team from Belgrade
Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade hold a 1-5 record in the Top 16 and an overall record of 7-9 record in the Euroleague this season. The 6-4 record obtained in the regular season was enough to see them through to this round but it looks unlikely that the team from Belgrade will be making any further progress in Europe this season.
With an average of 76.2 points scored this season, Belgrade will consider themselves near enough at the same level as their opponents tonight, which could make for a close game. Boban Marjanovic is a top player for the Belgrade side, offering up an average of 15.7 points and an average of 9.9 rebounds. They can also look to Marcus Williams for support, as he has managed to deliver an average of 6.5 assists per game this season.
Belgrade are currently top of the Adriatic League, sitting with a 20-1 record. Their most recent game was a loss to Krka, the final score ending up 77-67.
Even with a -9.5 handicap, at odds of 1.90, this looks like a game for Panathinaikos and taking them is never a bad idea.
