Alba Berlin vs Ratiopharm Ulm Preview & Betting Tips
Alba Berlin is great this season. Without a doubt, they are considered one of the main candidates for the BBL trophy. Alba Berlin demonstrated strength in the quarter-finals, and they were the first to reserve a place in the BBL semi-finals, as they eliminated Hamburg in three games (3-0) and achieved their third victory on the road with 85-73. After two convincing victories in Berlin, Alba came to Hamburg 2-0 and did the job in the third game and started defending the title in a great way.
Although Ulm finished the regular season in 6th place, they proved that they have a team ready for big games like Oldenburg. Former basketball player Jaka Lakovic is leading his team very well this season, and they certainly surprised Oldenburg in this playoff series. Ulm took a break in the first game in Oldenburg, then Oldenburg equalized, and the series moved to Ulm, where the host won both games at home and booked the semifinals.
In the regular season, Ulm lost both games against Alba Berlin (93-83 at home and 84-76 on the road), a total of 11 wins in a row for Aito Garcia Reneses. However, these results from the regular season have little significance, unlike the playoffs, and Ulm has improved significantly in recent weeks. All in all, Alba Berlin will have the support of almost 1000 fans in the first game, and I hope that they will open this semi-final series in great style.
- Alba Berlin has been great lately, winning 9 of the previous 10 games in all competitions.
- Ulm have significantly improved their game in recent weeks, winning 8 of the previous 10 competitive matches.
- Alba Berlin tied 11 consecutive victories against Ulm in all competitions.
