In the 27th round of action in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Basketball, two defensive powerhouses face each other, when Crvena Zvezda Mts Belgrade (15-11) are hosting Olympiakos Pireaus (18-8) at the Kombank Arena of Belgrade, Serbia on Wednesday March 22nd 2017.

Crvena Zvezda have a 15-11 record so far this season and are currently tied with two more teams in the 5th place of the league table. They have won three of their last four matches and last week they won on the road against Milano with a 71-78 score.

He is followed by Ognen Kuzmic with 9.8 ppg, adding a team high 7.4 rebounds per game (tied for third-best in the league), while Charles Jenkins adds 9.2 ppg and a team high 2 steals per game. Stefan Jovic adds 7.9 ppg and a team high 5.9 assists per game.

Olympiakos have a league second-best record of 18-8 so far this season and currently sit on the third place of the league table. Last week they saw a two game winning streak getting snapped when they suffered a surprise loss at home against Galatasaray with a 71-80 score. Georgios Printezis leads the team in scoring with 12.8 ppg and 4.9 rpg, followed by Vassilis Spanoulis with 12.4 ppg, adding a team high 6.1 assists per game (tied for second-best in the league). Khem Birch adds 8.2 ppg and team highs in rebounds, with 6.5 per game, and blocks with 1 per game.

This will be the fourth time these two teams meet in Euroleague with Olympiakos having a 3-0 lead. In their previous meeting earlier this season, Olympiakos won at home with a 73-65 score. Crvena Zvezda have a 9-4 home record so far, while Olympiakos are 7-5 on the road. Olympiakos are better offensively, scoring 78.6 ppg to Crvena Zvezda’s 74.8 (second-worse in the league), while both teams are the two top defensive in the league, Olympiakos first with 73.73 ppg and Crvena Zvezda second with 74.15. Olympiakos have better accuracy both in from inside (52.1% and 50.4%) and outside the arc (34.3% to 33.8%). Olympiakos are second-best in rebounds, with 33.8 while Crvena Zvezda are last with 27.9. Crvena Zvezda are better in assists (17.1 to 15.1) and steals (8.9 to 6). It is going to be a close game, but Crvena Zvezda are playing better lately and can get away with the win tonight.
