26/02/2016 19:45 – FC Barcelona Lassa v Olympiacos Piraeus – Betting Tips
It is fifth versus sixth, with both teams sitting with a 3-4 record in Group F in the Top 16 in the Euroleague. This is a must-win game for both sides and it is could well be another match to add to the long and tense history between these two sides in the Euroleague.
One of the best moments in Barcelona’s history came against Olympiacos Piraeus back in 2010 in the Championship game but the Catalan club has also struggled against their Greek rivals. If Barcelona are looking for inspiration, the fact that Juan Carlos Navarro is in their squad should be a great starting point. As one of the leading scorers in the Euroleague, Navarro has the influence and expertise that can make all the difference in a tight game like this. FC Barcelona started their European campaign so well but have fallen away badly. A win at home this week is essential if they are to maintain their playoff hopes.

The Greeks need the win as badly as the home team
Olympiacos were the winners between these two teams last season in the playoffs and they know that an away win could make all the difference to their playoff hopes this year. In Vassilis Spanoulis, the away team has one of the other all-time top scorers in the Euroleague so there are points in both teams. If the away team is looking to win this one, the form of DJ Strawberry and Darius Johnson-Odum could make all the difference. This is expected to be a very tense game in Catalonia and the team that holds their nerve best could be the team that grabs the all-important win.
The Catalan club are the favourites with the bookmakers and you can see that Barca should have enough about them to take care of the job. You should take FC Barcelona Lassa at -6, which is on offer at odds of 1.90. If you are looking to get involved with the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 158.5 which is also available at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
