KB vs BEL Dream11 Match Prediction

KB vs BEL Dream11: Saski Baskonia will play hosts to Crvena Zvezda in EuroLeague round-26 match at Fernando Buesa Arena on Thursday night (IST). This is a direct encounter between the two teams chasing the playoff spots, so the stakes are higher with neither team in a position to lose this game. Zvezda could be in the top-8 after this round if they win this game. They are 10-15 on the season.
That said, the hosts are hard-pressed more for a win here, for they are down at 15th on the table coming into this game, facing a two-game deficit in the playoff race. They know a defeat here will create a three-game gap which will be tough to bridge in the remaining eight regular-season games. Saski have 9-16 record this season and arrive in this game on the back of a 60-74 defeat against Zalgiris Kaunas in the last round.
