Prat Joventut vs Melilla
Prat's struggle continues as they lost their 8th straight league game and 10th in their 11 so far and they seem unable to stop the bleeding, not even at home where they have been crushed every time they faced a team from the top half of the table. Their young roster's quality is below the required for the league and things have gotten even worse for them since they are playing through injuries for quite a while now with the young stars G Zagars and F Bieshaar among the most important.
Melilla on the other side is a better and far more consistent team that aims for the playoffs this season. Their record is at 7-5 overall and they are currently in good shape with 3 wins over their last 4 games. Their away record is at 3-3 with 2 of those losses against top teams Betis and Lleida but they have not been troubled by bottom half teams.
Prat lost in the playoffs semis (3-2) against Melilla last season although they had a much better (lost players) and healthy team and this time they seem unable to trouble their opponents, Melilla, who are obliged to get wins like this one if they are about to make it to the playoffs and it's completely up to them to have an easy afternoon.
