Valencia Team News
When they lost to Baskonia and Asvel in the first two rounds of the Euroleague, everyone thought that Valencia had no place in this competition. However, after they beat Anadolu Efes and Olympiacos at road, it is clear that they are among the best European clubs.
Better Valencia form is connected with better form of Bojan Dubljevic. Montenegrian center has been the best player in this team for years and when he is in good mood, Valencia can beat anyone. Chris Jones is also playing fantastically, plus several important players are back from injury. It is obvious that new head coach Alex Mumbru will need some time to adjust as well. He is leading a team in the Euroleague for the first time in his career.
Valencia will try to achieve third win in a row in this competition. In order to do that, they will have to repeat performance from last week. In offense, it is necessary to hit in a high percentage from a distance. Defensively, Valencia need to keep the opponent below 75 points.
Monaco Team News
After six rounds of the Euroleague, Monaco is tied in first place with 5-1. They only lost to Maccabi in Tel Aviv. Even in that game they led by 19 points in the first half. Monaco are playing outstandingly and they are one of the best teams in the entire competition.
In backcourt, Monaco have Mike James, Elie Okobo and Jordan Loyd. That looks scary. When two of them are in good mood, it is very difficult to beat Monaco. When you add John Brown, who is perhaps the best defensive player in the Euroleague, it is clear what a force this team represents. Donta Hall and Donatas Motiejunas are playing on center position. They are completely different players in style, which gives head coach Sasha Obradovic many possibilities for combinatorics.
Monaco enters this game as a favorite. Certainly, there won’t be relaxation because they are aware that things in the Euroleague can change in a short time. Valencia beat Olympiacos at road last week and that’s an indication of how tricky they can be.
Valencia and Monaco never played against each other, so this will be their first clash.
Martin Hermannsson and Jasiel Rivero are injured and won’t player for Valencia. Sam Van Rossom is questionable. All players are available for Monaco.
Valencia vs. Monaco Prediction
Monaco has more talented players in offense than Valencia, while their defense is more compact. If they play close to their maximum, they should have no problem to achieve another win in the Euroleague and thus keep place in the top of the table.
