Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on UNICS vs CSKA


UNICS is gaining right in the course of the season and adding quality. He has won four games in a row in all competitions and is in excellent emotional condition. True, in the last meeting there was still a misfire, the team lost to Real Madrid - 68:85. It seemed that on the road she frankly crumbled to pieces, and could not make up a decent resistance to her opponent. Firstly, the defense looked weak, a large number of mistakes and losses were made. Secondly, nothing happened in the attack either, only 44.8% of shots were made from the game.

With such a level of implementation, it is quite difficult to count on something against the leader of the main club tournament of the Old World. The Kazan club was mentally prepared for an away defeat from the "creamy", so it is unlikely to go into a protracted depression.


CSKA continues to amaze with its instability, but this only makes it more interesting to watch him. The team in the last round suffered a painful defeat from Olimpia Milano - 57:67. The opponent completely surpassed the “army men” in all key indicators. It is for this reason that it seems that it will be quite difficult to rise above seventh place in the standings. The problem of the Russian club is that now there is no strong leader capable of deciding the fate of the match alone. Moreover, some individuals seem to begin to act brightly and beautifully, but they cannot adhere to such a line for a long time. Therefore, the main characters change from match to match, which is not always good.


History of the confrontation

Throughout the history of the existence of these teams, they very often collided with each other in the vastness of various tournaments. But it will be more revealing to analyze the statistics for the previous five head-to-head matches.

Game Totals Prediction

UNICS has been looking very convincing lately, rushing to the top of the Euroleague standings. Of course, the defeat from Real Madrid in the last round cannot go completely without a trace. But at the same time, the team should not be especially killed after a misfire in a match with a grand and the strongest representative of the draw at the moment. CSKA is not distinguished by stability and self-confidence. There are constant breakdowns and failed matches, so now you should not expect a particularly bright game on the road. We predict that according to the results of the meeting, the victory will remain with UNICS. The team from Kazan will be able to coolly take advantage of the home court.
