The team from Sevilla sensationally avoided relegation to the second league. They were at the bottom of the table for a long time with only a few wins. And then in the last eight rounds, they achieved seven victories and preserved their elite status.
Shannon Evans shone in the last few matches of the previous season. The American playmaker was brilliant, and the most important move of the management this summer is that they managed to keep him at the club. Along with him, Dairis Bertans and BJ Johnson will be among the key players.
Rodions Kurucs signed for Real Betis after an unsuccessful episode in Partizan, so it remains to be seen whether this former NBA player will be able to revive his career.
Luis Casimiro will be the head coach of the team this season as well. He is one of the most responsible for the good performances of the Andalusian team at the end of the last competitive year. He arrived at the club in November and managed to raise the quality drastically.
Valencia is at a new beginning since Alex Mumbru became the team’s new coach in the summer. He signed a three-year contract, which shows that the team’s management believes in this young coach. In the past seasons, he led Bilbao, and under his coaching staff, this team played well. He now faces a more serious challenge, because Valencia will also participate in the Euroleague, so he has to prepare the team for a season of over 70 games.
So, Valencia’s roster for this season has 15 players. Tobey, Labeyrie, Hanlan, and Dimitrijevic left the club, while three American guards Chris Jones, Jared Harper, and Jonah Radebaugh arrived. All three are physically strong and explosive, so they should bring speed and toughness to this team’s style of play.
Bojan Dubljevic, Klemen Prepelic, Jasiel Rivero, Xabi Lopez-Arostegui, Sam Van Rossom, and Jaime Pradilla will also wear the Valencia jersey this season, so the core of the team has remained unchanged.
Valencia’s roster looks very well-balanced in all positions, so this team enters the upcoming season with a lot of confidence.
Real Betis beat Valencia in both matches last season. They won 75-68 as hosts and 84-81 as guests.
When Alex Mumbru was the coach of Bilbao, this team played quite fast. We expect this style of play to be applied in Valencia as well. On the other hand, the key players of Real Betis also love run and gun basketball. Therefore, we expect a clash with many points scored.
Prediction: 161.5 over
