With a bit more luck last week, Crvena zvezda could have had one or even two more victories on the EuroLeague stage. The away games against Valencia and Baskonia were decided in a “photo finish,” but losses were recorded in both matches. In connection with this, the pressure on coach Sferopoulos and his team is increasing week by week.
Although the odds for Alba’s victory are an impressive 5.00, the victory of the red and whites in this match should not be in question. However, it is crucial to note that tradition is not on Crvena zvezda’s side. Alba has triumphed in the last four visits to Belgrade, with eight wins in the last nine EuroLeague encounters against Serbian representative!
It’s true that Alba is the weakest team in the EuroLeague this season, but we must emphasize the fact that they have shown certain signs of life recently. Some key players have returned to the court, and the German representative could deliver better performances in the coming period.
Crvena zvezda is a significant favorite in this match, and there is no doubt about it, but Alba, led by tradition, could offer strong resistance and, in the worst case scenario, avoid a double-digit defeat. The odds for Alba’s victory with a handicap of +9.5 can be played at odds of 1.95 at 1xBet.
