In the final match of the regular season game day of the Men's Euroleague basketball, Italian "Milan" will host the German "Alba" on their home court.

"Milan"

After last year's collapse (and defeat from "Virtus" in the Italian Super Cup), "Milan" is viewed with scepticism, although much of the difficulties stemmed not only from Ettore Messina's inability to muster something interesting, but from conventional injuries of the aging squad.

Milan's journey this season began with one victory in the first six matches.

In November, the club gradually managed to level their game, "Olympia" managed to defeat "Valencia" (83:52), "Efes" (92:76), and "Crvena Zvezda" (71:93).

However, Milan could not consolidate their success. Three consecutive losses from "Zalgiris" (70:83), "Bayern" (91:84), and "Partizan" (82:69) once again pushed "Olympia" away from the play-in zone.

December was more successful for the Italian team: victories over "Barcelona" (86:90), "Villeurbanne" (84:61), and "Baskonia" (76:67) to some extent corrected the club's tournament situation and returned it to the play-in race.

In the first matches of 2024, the Italian club lost to "Olympiakos" (79:74) and defeated "Bayern" (76:62).

Currently, the team occupies 12th place in the Euroleague Championship.

"Alba"

"Alba" had an unsuccessful performance last season and then lost many of its long-standing leaders: Sikma, Jaylen Smith, and Maodo Lo.
The team is starting all over again, now mainly relying on the trio of Sterling Brown, Matt Thomas, and Johannes Timann.

Nevertheless, the likelihood that "Alba" will not finish last is about the same as that of Sterling Brown managing not to get embroiled in a scandal during his European career.

"Alba" started in the Euroleague with four consecutive defeats: from "Bayern" (80:68), "Baskonia" (86:91), "Virtus" (87:76), and "Monaco" (86:75).

The unsuccessful series was broken only in the game against the Italian "Olympia" (85:82). However, maintaining the winning wave was not possible: the German club lost to "Valencia" (79:71), "Panathinaikos" (85:99), "ASVEL" (68:73), "Partizan" (89:74), "Real" (99:75) and the Israeli "Maccabi" (102:81).

Unexpectedly, the sweet spoon of honey in the barrel of the German club's performances was a victory in the first match of December over the Lithuanian "Zalgiris" (64:62), but after that the Germans lost twice to "Anadolu Efes" (89:97) and "Crvena Zvezda" (85:71).

The German club unexpectedly managed to break the unsuccessful series in a game against "Barcelona" (74:70). However, just three days later "Alba" lost to the Turkish "Fenerbahçe" (82:91).

Ending the year with a victory was also unsuccessful: "Olympiakos" brought 27 points to the German club in an away game and almost reached a hundred (67:94).

In the new year, "Alba" lost to "Zalgiris" (77:71) and "Virtus" (68:83).

The team's most productive player, as expected, is Johannes Timann, (14.4 points on average per game), but his efforts are not enough to rise from the bottom of the table.

So far, "Alba" is the 17th regular season team with a 3-16 result.

Head-to-head 

In the first round of this regular Euroleague season, the German club won (85:82).

Prediction

"Alba" is at the bottom of the league table and it can't be said that there are any prerequisites for a rise from the abyss. I think that the Milan players, despite their squad problems, should confidently beat this season's underdog and the negative handicap on home advantage is the optimal choice for betting on this game.
