CSKA Moscow: Form of the moment, latest results, statistics
CSKA Moscow is the most titrated team in Russia. Since 1991 he has lost only twice the championship. In total he won 25 times the title and seven times Euroleague. Under the mandate of Dimitros Itoudis, CSKA conquered the Euroleague only once, although it is the richest team in the competition. In the current season, in the VTB Cup, it has already reached the semifinals, where it will most likely pass easily by Zenit St’Petersburg. Now he focuses on the Euroleague, where he has good chances in the trophy. In the regular season he did not have problems, he was ranked second with 24 wins and six defeats. The way to the Final Four was not a difficult one. In the play-off he passed the Basconia, although after the first two hives the score was 1-1. The offensive has always been the strength of the team, with an average of 86.3 points scored per match. The main marker is Cory Higgins, but let’s not even look at the French Nando de Colo, who has an impressive resume.
- The probable Team: Daniel Hacket, Nando De Colo, Othello Hunter, Andrey Vorontsevich, Nikita Kurbanov;
Real Madrid: Form of the moment, latest results, statistics
Pablo Laso has been on the bench since 2011, and since then has won with Real Madrid not less than 16 trophies. Given what’s going on so far this season, he can win at least one trophy. In the domestic championship, with two rounds before the end of the regular season, he was on the first place with 52 points and on his own ground he lost only two points. Even in the Euroleague it has not done so badly so far. In the regular season it ranked third, with 22 wins and eight defeats. For a place in the Final Four he ducked with Panathinaikos, but he had a pretty easy job. The first game was more balanced, and in the last two it was set smoothly. Luka DOncic’s absence has not been felt until now, but only now is the brunt. Real has at its disposal a valuable lot and with some luck, can get an excellent result.
- The probable team: Edy Tavares, Anthony Randolph, Jeffery Taylor, Rudy Fernandez, Facundo Campazzo;
CSKA Moscow vs Real Madrid Picks
A balanced duel is announced in which the two bands start with equal chances. In the regular season CSKA was forced every time, but there were balanced matches. Now the situation is totally different, but I think CSKA will get tickets for the big final.
