Baskonia vs Virtus Bologna Predictions 


Despite their recent loss to Maccabi, Baskonia’s form improved drastically, claiming four wins in five matches ahead of this week. Virtus Bologna lost their last five Euroleague games in the regular season, so I will stick with the Spanish side here.

  • Baskonia have won 4 of their last 6 matches. 
  • Baskonia beat Virtus Bologna 95-91 earlier this month. 
  • Virtus Bologna have lost 5 of their last 6 matches (Euroleague). 

Head to Head 


Baskonia have a 5-4 advantage against Virtus Bologna in 9 matches. 

The most recent head to head match was won by Baskonia 95-91 earlier this month in Italy. 

Baskonia Form 


Baskonia wasted their first opportunity to seal a spot in the Euroleague playoffs, suffering a convincing 113-85 defeat to Maccabi Tel Aviv on Tuesday in Belgrade, Miller-McIntyre being their top scorer with 32 points, eight rebound and seven assists. 

They ended the regular season in 8th position with a score of 18 victories and 16 defeats, looking solid in the last two rounds.  

The Basque side earned back to back victories, first against Real Madrid 95-91 in the capital, followed by another road win in Italy against Virtus Bologna with identical score.  

Before that, they were on a horrible three-game losing streak, getting outplayed by Partizan, Zalgiris and Anadolu Efes. 

Baskonia Team News 


There are no injured players for Baskonia ahead of this match. 

Virtus Bologna Form 


Virtus Bologna were tagged underdogs on Tuesday, but they were victorious in Turkey against Anadolu Efes 67-64, Tornike Shengelia once again topping the charts with 13 points, four points and three assists. 
The Italian side was in the Top 6 Euroleague zone for most of the season, but their recent form and awful losing streak pushed them down to 10th place, ending the regulation with 17-17 score.  

Their fifth consecutive defeat was seen last week in Italy against Baskonia 95-91, Gabriel Lundberg’s 18 points not being enough for nothing more than a narrow defeat. Their best player Tornike Shengelia had a rough day, ending the duel with just eight points.  

Earlier in March, Virtus Bologna suffered back to back losses against Milano, Panathinaikos, Crvena Zvezda and Zalgiris Kaunas.

Devontae Cacok is injured. 

Verdict

I am still not convinced Virtus Bologna are behind their major crisis. They lost their last five games in the Euroleague in the regular season, including a home loss to Baskonia recently. Home win in small handicap is tipped.
