Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on UNICS vs CSKA


With a balance of 12/1, Kazan is the main pursuer of CSKA in the VTB United League 2022/23, coming in second in the table. The only defeat of UNICS happened in a match against the "soldiers" in Moscow. Now basketball players from Tatarstan have a chance for revenge to get involved in the battle for the first line in the regular season. Kazan has the best defense of the tournament.

In the last match VTB team played with Minsk, which is really weak. UNICS did not know any problems in that match, but none of the team's basketball players entered the top five of the week after the tour. On the one hand, this is a little annoying, but if you think about it, it may be part of the preparation for CSKA. If we talk about the bright personalities of that battle, then we need to highlight Daryl Macon. The American scored 26 points for the Belarusians, made two rebounds and gave the same number of assists, and he only recently recovered from an injury. Also in the match against Minsk, Kazan showed their best defense game in the championship. They missed only 53 points.


Muscovites have won all 13 matches in the VTB United League 2022/23. Phenomenal result. The equator of the regular season is already behind, but there are no defeats. Muscovites did not become champions in the last tournament. After that, many felt that the “army team” had passed. Turns out they just needed a break. CSKA changed its coach and there was a rotation of the composition. These nuances were as painless as possible for the club.

At the moment, the capital's basketball players have the best point difference and the most powerful attack group in the VTB League 2022/23. Aleksey Shved made it to the last team of the week of the tournament. He made a double-double in the battle with PARMA (17 points and 14 assists). In general, it must be said that CSKA players are constantly included in the top five of the weekly championship. More often than others, it turns out to be Milutinov. Serbs are really cool. He is the leader of the current "army".

Game Totals Prediction

CSKA is consistently good. It has a deep squad that has stood the test of time. There aren't many newcomers on the team, and they fit in well with the roster. That's not the case for UNICS. A lot of basketball players came in during the summer. They're very good, but they need time to get used to it. That's an incredibly important moment in a battle against strong opponents. CSKA will win (Win 2). The win will not be too big, but the fans won't need Validol at the end of the match either - a handicap of 2 (-6). Kazan will again do a good job defensively, making the overall score of the battle relatively low (Total less than 167.5).
