In one of the matches of the VTB Basketball United League, the main forces of Parma and CSKA Moscow will clash. On whose side will the victory be?
As you know, there is an uneven calendar in the regular VTB United League championship. As of mid-October, the participating teams of the tournament held a different number of meetings. So far, only three teams go the distance without defeats. Parma is among such teams. It is worth noting, however, that the Parmesans played only one meeting, managing to defeat an outsider in the face of "Tsmoki-Minsk" in the capital of Belarus with a score of 78:75. The owners are now on the third line.
CSKA Moscow leads the VTB United League standings. The home team has three wins in three matches over Nizhny Novgorod, Zelenaya Gura and Tsmoki-Minsk. The opponents, of course, are not the most serious, but the "army" were able to beat them on one leg, having an advantage of 20 to 48 points. Last week, the Itudis team played Midvik in the Euroleague, where they were able to win difficult victories over Zenit and Crvena Zvezda.
Statistics and figures:
- CSKA is the favorite of the meeting;
- Parma has 4 wins in 5 matches;
- CSKA won 4 meetings in a row;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 94:58 in favor of the "army".
CSKA after the Euroleague, and the game against "Crvena Zvezda" seriously battered the "Army". In addition, the current metropolitan team will be forced to play without one of its leaders, Tornike Shengelia, who was recognized as the most valuable player of the match in two consecutive rounds of the Euroleague. We can't expect defeat from CSKA. Most likely, we are waiting for an ordinary victory of the "army" with a difference of 8-10 points. No more.
