Cedevita Junior Team News
Cedevita Junior has been the stable fourth team in Croatia for several seasons. Cibona, Zadar, and Split are far ahead in every matter, primarily because they participate in the ABA league. However, compared to the rest of the competition in the domestic championship, Cedevita Junior stood out.
At the beginning of this season, Cedevita Junior made a massive transfer. They signed veteran Krunoslav Simon, who won two European championships with Anadolu Efes. For Damir Mulaomerović, this is the second year he has been on the bench, and the primary goal was to reach the semifinals of the Croatian League. From this perspective, it looks like a done deal, and the only question is who they will play against at that competition stage.
The problem for Cedevita Junior is the same as precisely 12 months ago. Even then, they were very dominant in the first part of the season, but as soon as the league for the champion started, a vast difference was visible compared to the three best Croatian clubs. And now they are in a series of three defeats and will need the best game to stop it against Split.

Split Team News
On Friday, Split defeated Borac Cacak and thus came very close to qualifying for the quarterfinals of the ABA League. If they beat MZT Skoplje in front of the home fans in the next round, they will almost certainly be part of the finals of the regional competition.
It is a huge step forward for Srdan Subotic’s team if it is known that in the previous two seasons, Split fought battles for survival until the end. This time they made a fantastic selection. Shannon Shorter, Tyrell Nelson, and Lewis Sullivan lead the “Yellows,” along with the excellent Dominic Mavra. The impression is that Split has more quality than Zadar and Cibona, and winning the title would be a fantastic result. That road will be much easier if they fight for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
This is precisely why this match in Zagreb is essential. Split is on a 21-4 record, just like the leading Zadar, while Cibona has a winless. “Yellows” must not allow any relaxation and must be maximally focused in this clash.
THE END: With an amazing scoring performance, @kksplit_ have outgunned @BoracKlub and keep their Playoffs dream alive! #ABALiga pic.twitter.com/aK4J6zQb7d— AdmiralBet ABA League (@ABA_League) March 31, 2023

Cedevita Junior vs Split Prediction
If we look exclusively at the quality of both teams, Split is better by a minimum of ten points. Cedevita Junior is in a slump, while coach Subotic’s team looks great. On top of all that, they will undoubtedly be motivated to take revenge on Cedevita for two heavy defeats earlier in the season. If the approach is correct, anything but a routine victory for Split will be a surprise.
