Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Samara vs UNICS


Now the team is in seventh position in the championship table with a balance of 8/12. PARMA, which is lagging behind, has similar statistics, and Avtodor, which is not in the TOP-8, has seven wins and 13 losses. It turns out that the situation is slippery for Samarans. They are close to reaching the next round of the tournament, but so far they are not guaranteed it.

Samara knows how and loves to score points. There is a feeling that this nuance will come in handy in the upcoming battle. The opponent has already solved all his problems at this stage of the competition, and now he can play for the soul. Its line-up is filled with bright attacking basketball players, who in the upcoming match can get more freedom of action than usual. It's worth betting on it. In this case, Samara needs a high realization of her moments, then she will have a chance at least for something. We must accept the fact that the opponent has an undeniable class. Competing with him on equal terms will not work.


UNICS will finish the regular season in second place. Now he has 18 wins and two losses. He can no longer catch up with CSKA, while fearing Zenith, which is currently third in the table, is also not worth it. It turns out that the remaining couple of games in the tournament is a kind of formality for Kazan. At the same time, it should be understood that the honor of the club is above all, and misfires definitely do not paint anyone.

In the last round, UNICS defeated PARMA, but only in overtime. Perhaps, even then, the Kazan team began to falter a little in attacks and did not work out from behind. The second moment was especially noticeable in the battle with the Permians. Kazan missed a lot of unnecessary points in that battle. There is reason to believe that the trip to Samara will be the same. Basketball players from Tatarstan will play for their own pleasure and will let the opponent do the same.

Game Totals Prediction

Zenit are superior to Loko on all counts. In addition, the southerners are not having their best period, and the recent unnecessary loss can be safely put down to the opponent's luck and underestimation of their side's strength. Pasquale will find the right words to get his men in the right frame of mind for the Railroaders. The home team will put their best players on the board and win with a handicap of 1 (-15). Zenit will play strictly defensively and this will have an effect on the total score - Total less (163.5).
