So far, both teams have a good chance of advancing further, so this should be an interesting game because it also can determine which team will end up higher. Please read our preview about one more very exciting EuroCup Venezia vs Lokomotiv Kuban match, here below.
Last week Venezia surprised everyone by defeating group leaders Partizan in their own arena. Instantly, it gave them extra points and strengthen their position fighting for the second place. Nevertheless, if Venezia loses this game, it will be Russians who will move up, while Italians will fall to 4th place. Considering how Lokomotiv is struggling, it is a good chance for Venezia to grab another win which would be 4th in a row in Eurocup. Also, Venezia hasn’t lost at home alhaven’t5 games in a row. So it only proves, that current champions of Italy are ready to play every opponent and have only one goal- to win the title.
The Russians were the favourites to win Eurocup before the season, but now there is a significant chance, that they might not even reach the next round. Lokomotiv lost against Rytas second time last week, and it was a very poor performance. If the offence was working well, the defence was resting that evening, because, under the rim, they allowed Lithuanians to do whatever they wanted to. Kairys scored 8/8 2 points. Clearly, the coach should take responsibility for such results, and it is surprising how he is not yet fired, because the first round is coming to the end, and soon it might be too late. The Russians also have a very difficult schedule, only one home game against Partizan and the rest 3 away. So, if Lokomotiv wants to advance further, they must start playing as they are supposed to.
