The hosts are seeking to bounce back from their first loss of the season. Olympiacos will also be looking for a fourth win against Spanish opposition in just six games this season; they have already beaten Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Cazoo Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz away from home. As for Valencia, they come off a strong 87-73 victory over ALBA Berlin.
Olympiacos (4-1) leads the 2022/23 EuroLeague in Performance Index Rating (106.2) mainly because of their great attacking rhythm. The Greeks are averaging 86.4 points per night, shooting the ball well inside the arc (57.5%, second overall) and from the free throw line (89.3%, first). Having the team’s roles really well-defined definitely helps, as Sasha Vezenkov (21.0 ppg., 9.6 rpg., 26.2 PIR) and Kostas Sloukas (13.2 ppg. 7.2 apg., 19.8 PIR, are its undeniable leaders.
As for their guests, Valencia (2-3) sits last when it comes to two-point shooting defence with opponents converting 58.9% of their two-pointers against them. It will take a team effort for the ‘Taronges’ to bring those numbers down, but if they can, it will greatly impact the game.
