FAE vs LEG Dream11: Faeton Basketball Club will be looking to end their three-game losing run when they play Legends Basketball Club in the 3rd round game of the ongoing 2019-20 Tajikistan Basketball League season at Manezh on Sunday (IST). As things stand, Faeton are the 3rd best team in the league with a 10-6 record in the season so far. As mentioned above, they lost the last three matches, last losing 82-74 to Diesel Power, a game that could prove to be a catalyst in their quest for the second-place, for Diesel are now at 2nd, holding a two-game advantage over them on the points table. But Faeton have a one game-in-hand and know they can cut the deficit down to just one game with a win in their next game.
Legends Basketball Club, meanwhile, are also hard-pressed for a win as well following a 125-74 defeat to the runaway leaders Basketball Club Dushanbe. Although that result was the most likely outcome from the matchup against Dushanbe, the manner in which Legends lost, with no fight and being mauled, the team must regroup and show that they are serious about moving up the table.
Faeton Basketball vs Legends Basketball team news:
Faeton Basketball: The hosts are sweating over the fitness of Khurshed Aslonov who had to sit out the last game due to an injury. He will be asked to prove his match fitness before the game and will be considered for the game only if he passes the fitness test.
Worth mentioning that Umed Ibodov, Dilshod Asrorov, and Iskander Payruzov are not being used from the bench as often as the trio would like. So it will be a risk to consider them.
Legends Basketball: Portland have their own fair share of injury issues at the moment, with a handful of first-team players missing the action. The players missing are Zach Collins (knee injury), Rodney Hood (Achilles tendon injury), Skal Labissiere (shoulder injury), and Jusuf Nurkic (leg injury).
