Crvena zvezda vs Brescia
Crvena zvezda will host Brescia. Two rounds are left. CZ is 4-4 so far, Brescia is 3-5.
The Serbian team has started this competition very well and was 3-0 but then arrived road game in Brescia (69-61 loss). And from that moment seems like everything went wrong. Starting from that match, Crvena zvezda went 1-4 in last five rounds. So, small crises was clear but IMO this is now behind them. I believe the host is now in decent form and will prove this today.
CZ is coming from very convincing win in ABA, at home vs Zadar (+27 pts). They are still without lost game in ABA league. I feel today's game vs Italian team will be a payback time.
When we are talking about the first mutual meeting in Italy, it should be mentioned CZ was early in big advantage, something around 20 pts lead but already at HT Brescia was 1 point up. So, it was very strange game.
Brescia is 1-3 on the road in Eurocup. This one win away from home came on their visit to Monaco where they were in huge deficit after halftime.
As for their national league in Italy, Brescia is doing pretty bad. With 3-6 overall record they are near the bottom of the standings while away from home Brescia is still winless, 0-5.
CZ play today to secure place into next stage. Plus I believe in small revenge factor.
I see this to be the match where the host will open very strong and will have decent early lead.
