Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Lokomotiv Kuban vs Lietkabelis

Lokomotiv Kuban

The start in the Eurocup turned out to be excellent for the "railwaymen", but a little later they slowed down a little. It is possible that the rivals simply got in shape, or it may well be that Loko joined the fight in the VTB United League, where intrigue is planned for the current draw. In total, after ten matches in the Eurocup, the Krasnodar team takes third place in their group with a balance of 7/3. To the first line right now they lack one positive result. In VTB, the southerners sank to the sixth position (5/4), but there they have one or two matches in reserve relative to their rivals. If you show your best basketball in them, you will get into the fight for the highest positions.

Basically, everything is going according to plan. Williams has recovered from his injury. McCollum is in perfect condition. Plus, other basketball players look very decent. Right now, it's important to prioritize. In the national championship, the whole struggle is ahead, and the group stage of the Eurocup has already crossed its equator, probably, now we need to work more actively here in order to ensure ourselves getting into the next round from a high position.


After ten played meetings, the Lithuanians are fifth in their Eurocup group with a balance of 5/5. Note that Lietkabelis is the team that managed to defeat Hoventud (10/2), which is currently the leader in the current round of the competition. In the LKL, the club is in third position (12/5), but it has excellent prospects to add more to the table. For many Russian basketball fans, Lietkabelis is a very mysterious and unfamiliar team. But it is worth noting that the level of the team is such that it is currently actively competing in the national championship with Rytas and Zalgiris.

History of the confrontation

The teams have three common matches so far. All of them were held within the framework of the Eurocup. In the last game year, Loko was twice better than Lietkabelis (105:76 away and 94:90 at home).

Game Totals Prediction

CSKA received a really heavy slap in the face in the last round, but this is unlikely to violate its strategy of playing in several competitions at the same time. The team will definitely actively use reservists, continue to demonstrate their complete confidence in them. Kalev will try to take advantage of the opponent's difficult schedule. I predict that even if the Estonian team fails to win, they will at least retain a head start of +20.5 points. Install the 1xbet app and place a bet on the favorite!
