To have more insights on this Barcelona vs CSKA Moscow Euroleague match, please read our preview below.
Barcelona has spent a lot of money this summer, especially to sign Nicola Mirotic and so far it does not look wasted. Barca is sharing 1st place with Anadolu Efes. Both teams lost only twice. Mirotic’s and Higgin’s duo is working just perfectly. Both players with the help of Brandon Davies are just dominating opponents from far and close range. However, CSKA knows how to play such games and also have their own advantages. So the Russians here cannot be underestimated because they are one of the top teams not without a reason.
CSKA this season will be trying to repeat their last season’s triumph. However, this year competition is much higher, that shows previous round loss against Real, where CSKA didn‘t stand a chance. For now, they are on 2 games losing streak, and if Russians will again play in such poor manner, there soon will be the third loss. Team has players who can surprise such as Strelnieks, Hackett, James but although a few games they looked nothing like themselves. Of course, knowing that you will be facing a tough opponent in front of their own fans should give some extra motivation to prove that CSKA is still capable of competing with the richest team in Europe.
