Olympiacos Piraeus vs Unics Kazan
Date: 09th December 2016
Kick-off: 20:45 CET
In what would most likely be the most lopsided game on Friday, Olympiacos Piraeus will host Unics Kazan at the Peace and Friendship Stadium.
Olympiacos have been performing pretty well since the start of the 2016-17 Euroleague season and they currently own a 6-4 record. The team from Piraeus has won three of its last four games in the tournament, with their only loss in that stretch coming against Maccabi Tel Aviv. Olympiacos are without a doubt the favorites to win their game against Unics Kazan on Friday and except if something extraordinary doesn’t happen, the Greek club will be cheering up their fans.
It has been a tough season for Unics so far, as the club from Kazan has won just three times in the ten games they have had so far. They managed to beat Emporio Armani at home in the previous round, but that was definitely a pretty shocking turn of events, However, things will most likely go back to normal when they visit Olympiacos in Piraeus on Friday night.

Olympiacos Piraeus vs Unics Kazan: Prediction
If Olympiacos don’t underestimate Unics on Friday, they will most likely have very few problems getting a win. Both clubs perform similarly in terms of offense, but the Greeks allow fewer points on defense – 77.0 points per game compared to 83.1 by Unics.
The main threat for Olympiacos, and Unics hope of getting a win, will be Keith Langford who has scored 22 or more already eight times since the start of the season. However, he will have to go through Vassilis Spanoulis, who is known to be a pretty good defender.
Expect an easy win for Olympiacos in a low scoring game, thanks to their stellar defense.
