In one of the matches of the next round of the Euroleague basketball, the main forces of Zenit and Bayern will clash. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.
ZENIT St. Petersburg will play its first home match in the Euroleague only in the fourth round of the Euroleague basketball. Away meetings in Kazan and Kaunas brought victories. At this, the white stripe of the "blue-white-blue" is interrupted. On Tuesday, they once again played with CSKA, losing to old acquaintances with a score of 67:77. Pascual's team harnessed for a long time, and woke up only when the gap from the opponent was 14 points. It was not possible to win back such a handicap, despite Loyd's 19 points.
The Munich team shamed its big name this week. A couple of days ago, the Germans started shockingly in Kazan against UNICS and led with a score of 37:26. In the third quarter, the Trinchieri team seemed to have forgotten what a high-quality offensive game is. As a result, the "greens" reduced the gap from the "reds" and were able to defeat the opponent. The guests with three losses are in the penultimate place in the Euroleague standings.
Statistics and figures:
- Zenit is the favorite of the meeting;
- The St. Petersburg team won three times in 5 matches;
- Bayern managed to win twice in 5 previous matches;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 82:80 in favor of Bayern.
In fact, nothing shines for Bayern in Russia. The St. Petersburg team has perfectly prepared for a full-time match with the opponent and will do everything to win this confrontation. Our bet will be in favor of the St. Petersburg handicap.
