Panathinaikos - Olympiakos

Olympiacos are not giving up at all the series are 2-2 and is crucial for Panathinaikos to win I expect another close match but I do see 20 points average per team per Quarter i do see a 150 points game I don’t see any other result this final play offs are finally catching up in speed on this final of Greece I think this game will end that way the spread for the home side to cover the game I think is to much and the total Over points is the better bet here my prediction is for this game to end 80-75

PICK: OVER (142.5) @1.900 10/10

Olympiacos punished with -6 points in the Greek league standings

embeded-image

Olympiacos was punished, as expected, for forfeiting the Greek Cup semifinal game against Panathinaikos and received the biggest possible penalty.

The tension between Olympiacos and Greek league authorities remains high and that was confirmed today with the announcement of the punishment of the Reds for leaving the Greek Cup semifinal against Panathinaikos at halftime.

According to the bylaws of the Greek Cup and the Greek league, which have the same sports judge but different rules, Olympiacos was expecting a penalty between -1 and -6 points and the Reds naturally asked for the minimum. However, they got the maximum sentence which is based on the bylaws of the Greek league and not of the Greek Cup, since the judge has the right to decide which bylaws will be applied.

After this decision, Olympiacos has 25 points in the league standings, having dropped to the sixth spot. The club has the right to appeal the sanction.

The developments in Olympiacos are rampant in the last few hours, with the end of Briante Weber, and on the other hand, with the sudden request of Axel Tupan to leave the team. "Reds" do not intend to stay with their hands crossed. Their next move will be to use the last change they have for the Basket League to bring a play maker

These news and finance situation for Olympiakos brings a value covering the today's PAOK handicap +6.5 or ML with nice @3.28 odds

Olympiacos season will end on Wednesday with a relegation

embeded-image

The Reds are expected to forfeit the last regular season game of the Greek League because of the presence of referee Panagiotis Anastopoulos and they will be automatically relegated to the second division

The Greek central refereeing committee announced today that Panagiotis Anastopoulos will call the upcoming Greek League game between Olympiacos and Promitheas Patron, putting practically an early end on the season of the Reds.

Olympiacos is expected to forfeit the game which is scheduled to be played next Wednesday and the end result will be for the Reds to be relegated. Anastopoulos was one of the referees who called the Greek Cup semifinal game against Panathinaikos and Olympiacos. The Reds left at halftime in protest and announced that “from now on the team won’t compete in any game of domestic competitions against any opponent if the game is officiated by referees Anastopoulos, Manos and Panagiotou”.

Olympiacos has also announced that “from now on the team won’t participate in any game of domestic competitions against Panathinaikos without the presence of foreign referees, exclusively”. As a result, the Reds forfeited the Greek league game against Panathinaikos.

With Olympiacos not backing down, the refereeing committee avoided appointing the three referees in Olympiacos’ games. However, officially the referees were always available for any game. Panathinaikos was asking for them to be appointed in Olympiacos games, protesting about the fact that the refereeing committee was following Olympiacos’ wishes on this matter.

The protest of Panathinaikos became more than official today with owner Dimitris Giannakopoulos being present in the meeting of the refereeing committee and saying to the media before the announcements: “For nine rounds the central refereeing committee is not upholding the rules, they accept and subdue to the blackmail of Olympiacos. What that proves? It proves that what Olympiacos fans are saying, that the state is Olympiacos, is true. But the point is that we are leaving on a state which is a brothel”.

According to the committee, as the league rules are asking, Anastopoulos was included in a draw that ultimately decided the outcome of their decision. Olympiacos has already been punished with -8 points, however, if they forfeit two league games, then all their results during the season are nullified.

I think it's could be also a smart move for them. If they will decide to play in second Greece division instead of ABA league than they have perfect conditions for Euroleague next season. They easily can allow themselves to play along youngsters in second division and have enough time to prepare for Euroleague and avoid injuries especially knowing that next season will be more double week.

Olympiacos to play against Promitheas and avoid relegation

embeded-image

Olympiacos will play against Promitheas since referee Anastopoulos was replaced after his request not to officiate in the game.

Olympiacos posted a game announcement for their last match of the regular season in the Greek League against Promitheas Patras, thus will avoid relegation.

The Reds were initially expected to forfeit the game after referee Panagiotis Anastopoulos was selected in the officiating team. However, things changed as Anastopoulos informed the Referees Union and the Greek Basketball Federation that he will be unable to join the game.

Anastopoulos was one of the referees who called the Greek Cup semifinal game against Panathinaikos and Olympiacos. The latter left at halftime in protest and announced that “from now on the team won’t compete in any game of domestic competitions against any opponent if the game is officiated by referees Anastopoulos, Manos and Panagiotou”.

That being said, the game between the two teams is expected to take place as normal, since Anastopoulos was replaced.

Olympiacos will not compete in the Greek League playoffs

Olympiacos announced that they will not compete in the Greek League playoffs.

Olympiacos won’t compete in the Greek League playoffs series against Panathinaikos starting off Monday, as made known this Saturday. The team has been informed for this decision by owner Giorgos Aggelopoulos. That being said, the Reds will be relegated to the second division of Greece, while leaving an open door for the Adriatic League.

The Greek Basket League board met on Saturday morning and once more turned down Olympiacos‘ requests and legal actions taken earlier on. With that in mind, the General Secretariat of Sports could cancel the last game day of the regular season.

Olympiacos holds on to its decision not to play after referees Tasos Manos and Panagiotis Anastopoulos were drawn to officiate the first game of the playoffs against Panathinaikos.
