Please read our preview about very interesting Euroleague Khimki Moscow vs Barcelona match, here below.
Khimki started this season very well and was one of the top teams. However, now they suffered three losses in a row, and have been knocked down. Moreover, now they are playing against one of the best team, so this won’t be an easy game. Nevertheless, the home arena should be a huge advantage, since Barca looks weaker in away games. Surely, Russians have everything they need to compete with such teams and this is a good chance to prove it. CSKA already proved that last week when they trashed Barca by 29 points in their own arena. So, everything here is in Khimki’s hands.
Barca were the favourites to win Euroleague since they signed Mirotic and so far it doesn’t look like so impossible. Spaniards are in the second place just one win away from first and considering that this is only the 12th round, there is plenty of time to improve their game. However, last week Barca looked nothing like themselves when they lost In their own arena against Cska 67-96. Nevertheless, if Mirotic, Higgins, Davies will perform well, there should be a much better view, because these three players are the leaders. But if Khimki will manage to stop them, Barca might suffer second loss in a row.
