Khimki vs Barcelona
6th round of matches in the Euroleague and we have Khimki playing against Barcelona.
So Khimki this year have lost 4 from 5 matches in the league but over their last few matches they seem to be getting their form back. Khimki against Anadolu Efes lost by a point and that has kick-start their good form since, they also lost by a point against Emperor Milano and that shows a massive upgrade on their form from earlier this season, Khimki have now won 4 from thier last 5 matches including a 87:72 win over Gran Canaria in the Euroleague.
Barcelona on the other hand have a 3-2 record in the Euroleague but I don't see them a better team than Khimki. Barcelona lost their last match by 6 points away at Fuenlabadra and that was somewhat expected as the team have been struggling of late, despite winning their matches. Barcelona have lost to CSKA Moscow and Gran Canaria in the Euroleague but have had to play against weaker teams Darrussafaka, Maccabi and Bayern hence why they have 3 victories from 5 matches.
Khimki do really need a win today to keep the hope of making the playoffs alive, the team in my opinion has enough quality to beat this Barcelona team and I think they'll win by at least 4 points.
