To have more insights on this Euroleague Khimki Moscow vs Lyon-Villeurbanne match, please check out the preview below.
Khimki Moscow (11-14) are one of the most inconsistent teams of the Euroleague. Most of this team’s success depends on whether A. Shved will have a good game or not. He’s the player who does whatever he decides to do and sometimes it leads to success, and sometimes to failure. After losing 3 matches in a row, Khimki responded with 2 victories and is now sitting in 8th place, together with 3 other teams. The race for the playoffs spot is only getting tougher and every victory is important, especially at home. Khimki should have all of the key players ready for Friday’s match, so they’re rightfully considered the favorite to win it comfortably against visiting the Lyon team.
Lyon-Villeurbanne (9-16) is the worst road team in the competition. They’ve only won once on the road in 12 played matches, so it’s hard to expect something from this kind of team. Anyway, knowing that this team has the lowest budget of the competition and still competed well against every team they played against, Lyon-Villeurbanne deserves the credit for it. Their chances to make the playoffs are small, but not very realistic. That’s why some younger players like T. Maledon are getting more and more minutes with each passing game in order to raise youth for next year’s competitions. In order to win against Khimki, Lyon should start making shots, because they’re only doing it on good percentages while playing at home. A tough task is waiting for this team, but we’ll have to see if Lyon may surprise.
