OLY vs ZAL Dream11 Team Prediction


OLY vs ZAL Dream11: In one of the standout fixtures in EuroLeague this week, Greek giants Olympiacos face Zalgiris Kaunas in round-8 of the EuroLeague 2019-20 season. The host could do with a win here as they come into this match off the back of two straight defeats.

Olympiacos recorded their biggest result of the season so far, as they took down CSKA Moscow 79-84 in their own backyard. It was a big lift for the Greek team as no game can be tougher for any team in EuroLeague than the one against the defending champions, but they failed to build on that result and lost the next two against Maccabi Tel Aviv and Anadolu Efes.

After those two defeats, Olympiacos’ record in the season stands at 2-5, and sit 15th on the points table.

Meanwhile, Zalgiris Kaunas have also been very inconsistent this season in the EuroLeague. But the visitors have gained some momentum of late, following a run of three wins from the last five games. They also won the last encounter in Europe, beating Fenerbahce 76-79 last week.
