With Casale’s success against Derthona and the simultaneous knockout of Virtus Bologna in Treviso, Olimpia Milano take the lead in the LBA Serie A UnipolSai 2022-2023 standings with 40 minutes left of the end of the regular season.
The home factor in the playoffs is at stake. Both teams have 44 points, but the Italian champions have the advantage of direct confrontation with a total of +16.
On the final day of the game, Olimpia Milano play Dinamo Sassari at home, still in contention for third place. Virtus Bologna hosts Varese instead, already safe and eliminated from the playoffs.
Olimpia Milano will take first place if they finish the match with the same score as Virtus Bologna, win or lose. Virtus is initially confirmed, like a year ago, only if he wins and Milan loses.
