KB vs ZAL Dream11 Match Prediction

KB vs ZAL Dream11: Saski Baskonia will be looking for their second straight win in EuroLeague when they entertain Zalgiris Kaunas in EuroLeague round-25 at Fernando Buesa Arena on Thursday night (IST).
The stakes are quite high in this game as both the teams are on an identical 9-15 record on the season, and are separated by only point difference, and also faces a two-game deficit in the playoff race. So it’s clear that the losing team will be down by three games after this round, with the task becoming tad harder considering only nine games will be remaining after this round.
As for the form, the hosts are in better shape having won the last game 79-65 against ASVEL Basket and three times in the last four rounds, while Kaunas are the complete opposite having lost three times in the last four EuroLeague games.
