Zalgiris Kaunas v Olympiacos Piraeus Betting TipsThese two teams first met in the semi-finals of 1999, and this will always be a happy memory for the hosts. Zalgiris won this game and went on to win their only Euroleague title so far. This will be the 12th clash between these two teams and they have contrasting fortunes in the Euroleague so far this season.

The hosts are currently 0-3 and they have an overall 5-8 record for the season. Given the fact that Zalgiris have the poorest defensive record in the Euroleague Top 16 so far, allowing 92.3 points per game, this is an area that needs worked on very quickly. They are also allowing an average of 38 rebounds per game in the Top 16 and these two statistics provide plenty of insight into why the team has lost their three games at this stage of the campaign so far. Paulius Jankunas is the key man for the hosts and he’ll need to be at his very best if the Kaunas fans are going to have much to cheer in this game.
