Valencia vs Baskonia Odds
One of the biggest surprises at the start of the season in the Euroleague was the Valencia team, which was left without a large number of important players, but at the start of the season, they were playing excellent basketball and were at 5-5, just like the Baskonia team. These two teams opened the season diametrically opposite. Valencia opened the season with victories, while lately they have been playing very poorly and are looking for a way out of the crisis against Baskonia. While Baskonia started the season very badly, with the change of coach they lost and caught the right rhythm.
Valencia struggled a lot with injuries to some key players, and playmakers Jović and Hermannsson will be missing in this match as well. At the beginning of the season, they were led by Davies, but injury problems derailed him, which significantly affected his form, which has been much worse lately. They depend a lot on the tandem of Jones and Harper, who are key players at the guard positions. Defensively, along with Real Madrid, they are the best defensive team and allow opponents only 74 points on average. The defense will be their biggest asset in this match. They are especially aggressive at the passing line and defend the three-point line very well. Ojeleye and Inglis, who can cover multiple positions with their strength and mobility, just like Jones, who, although he is limited by height, is one of the strongest defenders in Europe, gave them great solidity in defense.
Valencia and Baskonia played a duel this season in the Spanish Endesa league, where the host was Baskonia, which came to a safe victory with a difference of 9 points, and in the ranks of Valencia, Inglis was the most effective with 19 points and 11 rebounds, while Davies added 14 points.

Baskonia Team News
The change of coach and shock therapy in the ranks of Baskonia was definitely successful, and after four consecutive victories, they experienced their first defeat under the leadership of Dusko Ivanovic. They were defeated by the Monaco team in the last seconds of the match, when after a missed shot by Mike James, the offensive rebound was caught and returned to the basket by Blossomgame bringing the victory to Monaco. It should be said that Monaco had a double-digit advantage for a few minutes before the end of the match, but Baskonia did not give up even then. What is especially important for Baskonia fans is that Ivanovic managed to distribute roles to all players and get the most out of each player. This is best seen in Markus Howard, who has been breathing since Ivanovic came to the Baskonia bench and reminds me of that Howard from last season when he was unstoppable for opposing defenses. Howard did not play in the match with Valencia in the domestic championship, but that did not stop Baskonia from winning.
The real revelation this season is Chima Moneke, who is the leader of the Baskonia team and dominates in both directions. Defense, jumping, energy, taking responsibility, all this brings Moneke to the Baskonia team. Tadas Sederkerskis plays a particularly important role in Dusko Ivanovic’s system, bringing safety in the jump, while also being able to spread the racket. Baskonia has raised their attacking rhythm and they are playing their game, and we expect them to be fired up in this match as well and to find a solution for Valencia’s defense.

Valencia vs Baskonia Prediction
This is a duel between two teams that play opposite styles of basketball. Valencia is a defensive-oriented team, while Baskonia is an attacking team, and the team that imposes its style of play will be closer to victory. We believe that Baskonia can win this match, primarily because of their better form lately.
