The Greek Olympiacos Piraeus are hosting the Spanish Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz at the Peace and Friendship Stadium in Piraeus on Friday, October 1, 2021, at 14:00 ET in this opening round matchup of Euroleague Basketball. Both squads are looking to do better this season as they did not make it to the postseason last year. Olympiacos had six consecutive losses before ending the season with 5-2 wins, but it was too late. Baskonia ended last season with a 9-3 record in their last 12 matches but they didn’t crack the top-8 either. 

 

Olympiacos finished last season with a 16-18 record and were placed in the 12th place of the league. In their last game they defeated Khimki Moscow at home with an 82-75 score. They shot way better than their opponents from inside the arc, making 68.6% of their shots, while holding them into just 38.2%. Six of their players scored double digits, led by Aleksandar Vezenkov with 20 points. He also added a game-high 11 rebounds, while Georgios Printezis added 14 points and 4 boards. 

 

Vezenkov led the team both in scoring with 11.5 ppg and in rebounding with 5.4 per game. Kostas Sloukas followed with 11 ppg and a team-high 6 assists per game. 

 

Olympiacos averaged 78.6 ppg last year, while allowing 79.8 ppg defensively. They had a 47.1% field goal percentage and a 34.8% 3-point percentage.

Baskonia won both meetings against Olympiacos last year. At home with a 91-66 score and on the road with 76-90. They are 3-1 in their previous four matchups but Olympiacos have a commanding 15-1 lead in their previous 16 meetings in Piraeus. They had a 7-10 home record last year, while Baskonia were 7-10 on the road. Last time Baskonia won on the road was back in the 2003/4 season and don’t expect that to change today and pick Olympiacos to beat the odds.
