Valencia Team News 

In sports, just one victory or match is enough to change the entire system and game. Not so long ago, Alex Mumbru was fired. There was consideration of dismissal, but a double round and too little room for maneuver left him on the bench. And they returned from Istanbul with great results and form. First, the champion Efes was defeated, and then Fener had a hard time beating Valencia. The positive energy was also seen on Sunday, when Valencia defeated the unpleasant Obradoiro away from home.

Valencia forces attacking basketball, without much contact, but with many shots for three, fast flow of the ball, assists and at the end of the transition. Chris Jones and Radebaugh arrived, who are just the kind of players who like to shoot and run into space.

However, the main player is certainly Bojan Dubljević, who is an absolute legend and the leader of the Valencia team. With the improvement in the quality of his game, Valencia also started to play much better.

The biggest problem of the home team is the defense, so we expect them to engage in a battle with their guard down against Alba, which has a similar style of basketball.

Alba Berlin Team News 

A real little miracle is being made by Alba’s team this season. An example of team basketball where each player has the right role and trust. We saw this best in the last round when, without four players from the first five, they defeated Panathinaikos by almost 30 points. What is particularly interesting is the performance of players who don’t even have minutes in the German championship, they entered the Euroleague and did the job. We are especially thinking of total anonymous people on the European basketball scene, guys like Dellow, Wetzell, Mattisseck, Schneuder and others. But they got a chance against Panata and Efes, and did a great job.

The two main players, Lo and Smith, were injured and did not play in the last four games, but Alba won three of the four games and showed fighting spirit and team basketball.

The key player is Luke Sikma, who creates the play of the team from Berlin from position PF. A big improvement in Alba was shown by center Koumadje, who dominates the racket and brings a big advantage in the jump. In the absence of Smith and Lo, top games were played by Tamir Blatt, who decided the matches against Bonn and made the difference against Panata. Alba got a new Payton Siva with Blatt, who has a much better shot, what they have been waiting for in previous years, is paying off.

Valencia vs. Alba Berlin Prediction

For Valencia, Hermannsson, who has knee problems, will be absent in this match, while Rivero and Webb will also be absent. There is still no Eriksson for Alba, who has not played since the beginning of the season, while the performances of Lo, Smith and Thiemann are questionable.

The duels between these two teams, which emphasize an attacking style of play, never disappoint. We expect a large number of points, so that they score over 160 points. The results from the last four show that.
