Baskonia Team News

Baskonia has been in a big decline for several years. Due to financial problems, the investments are much smaller, as can be seen from their roster. Last season they were one of the weakest teams in the Euroleague and it seems that will be the case in this campaign as well.

Although they beat Valencia at road last week, it happened because of an extremely poor performance from home team. This season, Baskonia has only a few players of Euroleague renown. They are Markus Howard, Darius Thompson, Rokas Giedraitis and Maik Kotsar. It was the Estonian center who was the MVP of the Euroleague first round. Apart from them, rest of the team is mostly at the Eurocup level and with these players, head coach Joan Penarroya can hardly do much in the Euroleague.

However, a possible win against Partizan would bring Baskonia to 2-0. That would be a remarkable start, all things considered. For this reason, we should expect an extremely motivated home team for whom this will be the first game in the Euroleague in front of home fans this season.

Partizan Team News

Partizan returned to the Euroleague after eight seasons and their ambitions are very high. It cannot be otherwise when your head coach is Zeljko Obradovic, the best in European history. During the summer, roster was additionally strengthened and now trophies in domestic competitions are expected, plus hunt on the Euroleague quarterfinals spot.

Between two seasons, Partizan signed Dante Exum, Ioannis Papapetrou, James Nunnally and Danilo Andjusic. If the opportunity arises, black and whites will look for another point guard and center on the market, especially since Aleksa Avramovic and Alen Smailagic are injured until mid-December. Against Alba, Partizan’s defense looked scandalously bad. They allowed the opponent to destroy them on the rebound and that is something they will have to fix in Vitoria.

Compared to the first game in the Euroleague, Partizan will have to change several things. First of all, their defense will have to be much more aggressive and energetic. In offense, it will be necessary for them to find other solutions and speed up the game, as they failed to do so in Berlin.

H2H

In total, these two teams played against each other seven times. Baskonia leads 4-3. The last clash took place in 2010/2011 season, when the home team won both times.

Injuries

Steven Enoch is injured and won’t play for Baskonia. Aleksa Avramovic and Alen Smailagic are out of action at Partizan.

Baskonia vs. Partizan Prediction

Conceptually speaking, Alba is a team that is less suited to Partizan than Baskonia. We should expect a reaction from Obradovic’s team and a much more serious approach than it was in the capital of Germany. It is also time for some Partizan players like Punter and LeDay to show all their potential and play according to their abilities. That is why we expect the guests not to lose by seven or more points.
