Prediction: Bilbao Basket - Real Madrid
- Title : Prediction: Bilbao Basket - Real Madrid
I have sympathies for the home team, but they can hardly avoid defeat here, although they were regularly able to beat Real Madrid on this court in one period about ten years ago. Now it seems to me that Real Madrid is too strong and if they are not tired of the Euroleague, they will easily make a difference at the start. Real Madrid has a long bench with moving centers and fast guards, so I expect here even a victory with AH at the end of the game with a very good defense of the Real Madrid.
The start of the season in the ACB League is in huge contrast to the start of the Euroleague season as it comes to Real Madrid. In this competition, the royal club is perfect with 4 wins from 4 matches played while in the Euroleague at 1-2.
Bilbao is certainly not anymore a team that, until a couple of seasons or more ago, was fear and trepidation for many favorites on this court. It is a respectable team even now with a large number of foreigners, but I doubt very much that they will manage to qualify for the playoffs this season. A bad start confirms that. In the previous 5 games, Bilbao has won only once. Also, no team leader has been imposed. A couple of team players have about 11-12 points on average such as Brown, Hakanson, Zyskovsky, Rouselle .. I predict this team a fight for survival because by name they are much weaker than most teams in the league.
Bilbao: PG J. Brown SG L.Hakanson SF J.Rouselle PF J.Zyskovsky C A.Kulboka
Real Madrid: PG Campazzo SG Laprovitolla SF Llull PF J.Taylor C Tavares
