To have more insights on Valencia vs Khimki game, please read our preview below.
Before the season it was difficult to predict how good Valencia is going to be, but they are proving to belong among the top teams of Europe. Although they are in the 6th place now, only 3 wins separate them from the 1st place. The team is showing very good results in both sides of the game. However, the big problem is stability, because they manage the defeat good teams, they also manage to lose against teams like Zvezda in a home game. Considering in how deep trouble Khimki is now, there should not be any problems for Valencia to grab an easy win, but still, they should not underestimate the Russians, because they also can surprise them any moment.
Khimki was very confident that this season might be the best for them, knowing that they have players like Shved, Monroe, Jerebko it seemed to make sense. However, at first, there were Coronavirus situation when they had only 5 players who were able to play. But now when the team is ready, Khimki still cannot find a way to victory. In the previous round they were winning by 15 against Asvel, not the toughest team, but still managed to lose that game. It is clear that coach Kurtinaitis is running out of time to show the board that he is the man for the job. Considering how many coaches and assistants just were fired, it is safe to say that Kurtinaitis might be also counting his last days in Russia.
