Limoges vs Valencia
Limoges is an offensive side while Valencia is a team that does involve defense especially on the road. Limoges after 3-4 games with 80+ points ended at 72 points in Belgrade so obviously their offense is susceptible to defense. After all against Lokomotiv Kuban they stayed under 70 points at home. Valencia plays faster at home and in some recent away games but we could see them controlling their opponents in Euro Cup games...Lyon 72 pts, Partizan 61 pts, Turk Telekom 67 pts...only against Zenit the game didn't go the way they planned. This time I expect Valencia to dictate the tempo since this is next stage of the competition and there are not a lot of games so they can't afford to lose games and after all Limoges got a late ticket for this stage while Valencia takes this competition seriously...somewhat like Sevilla does in football Europa League, this way they already had their ticket for Euroleague since through ACB it is really hard to get it because it is very competitive league with plenty of good teams.
Valencia recipe to success on road games is defense and I expect to see it once again.
I could see 72:77 result in this game.
