Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Panathinaikos vs Zalgiris


Seven matches of the Euroleague season are behind us. Here the Greeks managed to beat: Bayern (78:71), Baskonia (95:81) and Alba (99:85). The club's defeats came from battles with: Fenerbahce (69:83), Barcelona (72:80), Olympiacos (78:88 in overtime) and Maccabi (81:86 in extra time). On paper the situation does not look very nice, but in reality the team is quite good.

Currently, Pao is in eighth place in the competition table. The situation is normal. “Fener” (third line in the final protocol) is only a couple of wins ahead of the Greeks. We need to stay in the top ten. The table is dense. For example, Bayern (third place from bottom) is only one positive result behind.

In the last round, Kendrick Nunn made his debut for Panathinaikos in the Euroleague. Let us remember that earlier in his career the basketball player played in the NBA. In this battle, he spent about eight minutes on the floor. During this time, he managed to score six points, plus made an assist. The player was pleased with his debut. I would like to believe that Nunn will strengthen the team. We also cannot help but mention the recent injury of Spanish forward Hernangomez. He is out until early 2024 due to a broken finger. It is sad.


At the moment, the Lithuanians are in 11th place in the overall Euroleague standings. They have three wins with four misfires. Note that in the tournament table there are currently six teams with the same balance of positive results and defeats (3/4). They occupy 8-13 places. All good in theory, but there is a nuance that lies in the fact that Zalgiris is not in the most outstanding form right now. The team cannot win three battles in a row in the Euroleague. The defense lets us down.

The Lithuanians achieved their success in the tournament in battles against: Red Star (79:74), Virtus (82:79) and Baskonia (99:82). Misfires occurred in rivalries with: Real (79:93), Ephesus (82:86 in overtime), Valencia (72:87) and ASVEL (88:91).

In some places the club plays very sound basketball, but right now something is going wrong. The team seems to lack energy. Going to a direct competitor in the table, who is motivated and in good shape, promises to be difficult.
