Olimpija vs Igokea by Umicuma
Although two very similar team comparing quality at both, there should not be such big home advantage on Olimpia because Slovenian team have one of the weaker season in overall and still is three victory behind Igokea at the moment. The biggest strength for home team in coach Pipan, but Bosnian champion also made great addition at the bench, with sign of ex Partizan coach Jovanovic (Won few titles with Belgrade team, and played Euroleague). He should speed - up play of team, and try to reach fourth place which lead to playoff. Also, Igokea is off from Eurocup, while Olimpija (playing well there) still have to concentrate on both competition.
Jovanovic will probably try with Nikolic - Wiliams at the post, and Jorovic at power forward. That should give Igokea huge advantage under the basket because Jorovic (204) is faster that any of his defender, and Wiliams (206),Uros Nikolic (207) are much stronger than Omic (217) from home team where they can easy make enough space at the arc. Guard Bakic should recover for away team playing along Gordic, and with that power in front team can make well result in Ljubljana.
Olimpija will try their standard slow attack, but with many shooting. Some of their players like Drobnjak and Joksimovic are in late playing years, and it question if can perform on top level all season long, especially at two competition.
First match in Aleksandrovac, Igokea won 74:61 where both teams were performing much worse that now+
