The VTB United League is perceived by many teams as a game practice right up to the playoff stage. The giants are well aware that they will almost ironically find themselves in decisive battles for the title, since they perform very powerfully, some victories are taken even by the second squad. But Zenit has recently begun to stumble too often - twice in the last three meetings. This simply could not but affect the emotional state and tournament position. The team lost the lead and fell immediately to the fourth position in the table.

Zenit vs CSKA
This was immediately taken advantage of by CSKA, which froze a little at the start of the competition. He is traditionally gaining momentum progressively, trying not to force things too much. This is what allows us to approach the playoffs almost at the peak, to give out our best basketball. On January 17, the rivals will meet each other in a principled confrontation on the floor of the Sibur Arena in St. Petersburg.
The Euroleague came out from the New Year holidays and offers basketball fans the most interesting matches. Moscow CSKA is in excellent emotional and functional condition. The team has issued a series of three victories in a row in all competitions, adding from match to match. The leaders have finally recovered from damage, so they are ready to demonstrate the optimal level of play.

CSKA vs ASVEL
ASVEL lost four matches in a row and fell out of the playoff zone, having lost confidence in their abilities. Only in the last match did he finally break his black streak. But one gets the feeling that the only victory in a long time cannot be considered a full-fledged harbinger of a way out of the crisis. On January 14, the rivals will meet each other on the floor of the Megasport Arena in Moscow.
Coronavirus has not canceled all Euroleague matches, individual teams continue to struggle with their last strength to get into the playoffs of the competition.

It is for this reason that basketball players openly give up.


CSKA is having one of the toughest seasons in recent memory. He is in a borderline position, and each misfire can greatly affect the chances of getting into the playoffs. It is for this reason that every single fight has to go to the limit of motivation. On January 12, the rivals will meet each other on the floor of the Olympic Indoor Hall in Athens.
The Euroleague is going through the most difficult times, as almost all matches are postponed due to the coronavirus. Some clubs cannot even collect a full application to take part in the meeting.

But over time, it became clear that resources for the entire season may simply not be enough, you need to learn how to correctly distribute your forces over the entire distance.

Olympia Milano vs Zenit
Zenith issued a series of four victories in a row and is definitely not going to stop there. The leaders have rebooted and are again swaggering over their rivals, acting very powerfully. Therefore, even on the road, the club from St. Petersburg may well surprise. On January 7, the opponents will converge on the floor of the Mediolanum arena in Milan.

After the controversial start of the season, UNICS reached a completely different level of play, literally began to destroy rivals.

This Euroleague season is turning out to be one of the most exciting in recent years. The main reason is that each team can win even against a recognized leader. Zenit started the rally excellently and settled at the top of the tournament table. He even had a real chance of competing for first place, but suddenly failed two matches in a row. This seriously reduced the likelihood of becoming the winner of the regular championship.
