Second round in Lithuanian LKL league will give us 17 time champions (last 5 times won) Zalgiris playing away against Prienai Vytautas who were 9th last season.
As it is start of season we have to look at transfers in and out and Prienai is in big rebuilding mode since last season, they lost sponsors and now found new one and will be changing their name to BC Vytautas. If we look at players they changed them all so its basically a new team (9 out of 12 players). So complete new starting 5 (Butkevicius, Dylis, Sulskis, Sirutavicius, Vasilinauskas). Except Butekvicius, 2 players from bench (Cepukaitis and Kiselius) are only new players that has been already playing for club in 2012 when they finished 3rd in the league and actually won one game aginst Zalgiris.
Zalgiris on other hand is weaker then last year cause they lost James Anderson who left for NBA, Milaknis who had breakout season left for Russian team UNICS, young back up center Gudaitis who left for rivals Lietuvos Rytas and starting point guard Will Cherry from USA who left for Germany to ALBA Berlin. They did good job in getting great players in as replacements, instead of Cherry they returned back home Kalnietis who was best assister of last EURO, Instead of Anderson they got back another member of Lithuania national team and former player of team Pocius from Galatasaray, third member of national team is Seibutis (player they took from rivals Lietuvos Rytas) who will take place of young Milaknis, and they brought in few foreign players who will be young jokers from bench (Australian PF Motum, Candaian SG Hanlan and Greek center Vougioukas). They again have best team in the league and have good chances to get into top 16 phase of Euroleague. Zalgiris had 7 players in national teams on EURO 2015 (only Fenerbahce had more - 8).
Vytautas won twice against Zalgiris , but teams are changing so it doesnt mean much, all wins zalgiris made were over 11,5 . +13, +29, +16, +34, +27. This season in first round Prinai won +19 at home against another rebuilding team Lietkabalis while Zalgiris has beaten Sialuai away at 14 with terrible shoot percentage. With all that being said its quite obvious that Zalgiris is better at every level then rebuilding team of Vytautas and will win with double digits once again.
