Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Virtus vs Valencia


The club is now fifth in the competition table with 16 wins and ten losses. The two opponents, who are ranked higher in the overall standings, have similar statistics. Everything seems to be fine, but the Italians have only one positive result in the last four Euroleague battles. It turns out that Virtus is rolling back in the final protocol. Although, in fairness, we note the team’s harsh schedule during the period in question.

What is special about Virtus? He loves to push forward in battle against any opponent, and he doesn't care much about the fact that such tactics lead to huge difficulties behind. The team's point difference at the moment is 2093:2111. These are not critical numbers, but the essence of the above thought is clear here.

The American Keycock, who is currently in the hospital recovering from a knee injury, will miss the match with the Spaniards. Losses are always very unpleasant events, but in this case the team can survive its loss. The guy was injured in December and the Italians have already learned to play without him. Earlier in the season, the legionnaire averaged about three points per match, plus collected a little more than two rebounds per match.


The team takes ninth place in the competition table. He has 13 victories and exactly the same number of negative results. Maccabi, one line below, has similar numbers. Is Valencia feeling good? Probably not. She has only one win in the last three matches of the competition, and the schedule here was very pleasant.

The Spaniards prefer neat basketball. They do not rush forward, but rely on defense and most often they are good in this component. The difference in bat points is 1975:1962. Almost neutral, but here you can understand the style of the club.

Toure, who has back problems, will not take part in the match against Virtus due to injury. The loss is palpable. The guy knew how to be useful on the floor from time to time. He is able to both finish attacks and perform well on the shield.
