CSKA Moscow vs Real Madrid
Cska Moscow will host team of Real Madrid. Two of the several best teams in Euroleague this season. But at this point, I must give clear advantage to Russian team. Beside they will play at home, CSKA seems in much better situation with their roster. Namely Real Madrid went to Russia with it's best player Luka Doncic injured. He has sprained his ankle and missed training sessions. They said Doncic could play but IMO in Real won't risk with their best player. Not now when they are already weakened big time with numerous injuries. So, even if he takes some minutes, probably it will be very limited. We know from earlier that Real is very weakened on center position. Anthony Randolph is back though and went with the team but IMO he is another guy with whom Real will take it slow.
CSKA Moscow is extremely powerful in offense, the highest scoring team in Euroleague. Real ranks near the top too but IMO the Spanish team won't be able to cope with CSKA today.
BTW this is going to be 500th game for coach Laso, hopefully it won't be successful for him.
I expect from CSKA to dominate from the beginning and to take the job done here. Beside the fact CSKA has lost just once at home (from Fenerbahce) we should count also on revenge factor. Namely the host will be eager to get revenge for 82:69 loss in Madrid earlier in the season.
