UNI vs CZ Dream11: Unicaja Baloncesto Malaga will be facing fellow Spanish rivals Basket Zaragoza in the quarter-final of Copa del Rey at Palacio de Deportes José María Martín Carpena on Friday night (IST).
Unicaja saw their three-game winning run coming to end in the last game following 98-95 defeat in Liga ACB against Bilbao Basket. But that negative result should be taken as an indicator of their current form, which at the moment, is one of the best in Spain. They have won three times in the last four games and 8 times in the last 12 games in all competitions.
Basket Zaragoza, on the other hand, are coming into this game on the back of a shock 85-67 defeat away at Basquet Manresa in Liga ACB at the weekend. The defeat ended their seven-game win streak, but they are in a good position on the seaosn, for they are only two games behind league leaders Barcelona.
Teams: Unicaja Baloncesto Malaga and Basket Zaragoza
Venue: Palacio de Deportes José María Martín Carpena
Match Timing: February 15, @ 02:00 AM
