Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Lokomotiv Kuban vs UNICS

Lokomotiv Kuban

The season has already gone to the "railroad" in the asset. Nobody expected them even in the semi-finals at the start, and now the southerners are fighting for gold medals in the VTB United League. Now you need to win, as they say, the appetite came with eating. The main series of the tournament started on the opponent's territory, but the "railwaymen" immediately deprived UNICS of the advantage of their parquet. Then Kazan bounced back in the second battle, but this is no longer critical.

Then Loko stumbled in the first final match on its territory. In that battle, the opponent started very aggressively, putting a lot of effort into his dash. Krasnodar waited out this outbreak, bounced back, but in the end it was corny unlucky. There is a feeling that "locomotives" are now better than their rival in terms of physics.

At the same time, in the last game, the southerners had problems with the implementation. Everyone was waiting for almost perfect statistics here, but almost nothing flew at the start, later they managed to tighten up this moment, but still this is not what is called shots on shot rings. Maybe it was just a bad day. It seems that in the next battle Lokomotiv will again try to throw a lot from a distance.


Kazan went through the season powerfully and smoothly. Until the semi-finals, everything went fine, and in the 1/2 it became a little alarming when Zenit turned out to be the rivals, but UNICS did not disappoint. Now he is measured by forces with the Locomotive. The series started in Tatarstan, but the club did not take advantage of its site, taking only one out of two matches there.

The first away battle in Krasnodar was won. Now the opponent does not have a head start in the form of native parquet. The situation is positive, but nothing has been decided yet. The main struggle is ahead. In any case, we are waiting for another game in Kazan.

Note that the team looked tired in the last meeting. It's a little stressful. Plus, it must be emphasized that Macon liked to talk to the judges in that battle. As you know, this is not done from a good life. Dimitrievich, who was supposed to carry UNICS, did not show his level. Kazan had a lot of fouls in the game, including violations of the rules in attack. No strength? It is possible that this is all part of a cunning plan from the coach of Kazan, but there is a temptation to believe that the truth is on the surface.
