ZAL vs VAL Dream11 Match Prediction

ZAL vs VAL Dream11: Zalgiris Kaunas host Valencia Basket in EuroLeague round-13 matchup at Žalgiris arena with both the teams looking to return back to winning ways.

Zalgiris are second from the bottom on the table and have lost a whopping nine games already in the season which is only 12 round old. It goes without saying that their chances of making into the knockout rounds are fading with each defeat and if they don’t strut their stuff soon, even the slimmer hopes will end.

But any suggestion of them turning their fortunes around soon should be gauged through the fact that they are the worst team in EuroLeague on current form, as they come into this game on the back of six successive defeats.

Valencia Basket, on the other hand, are slightly better than their next opponent. Only better by margins, or by one game, as they have just four wins to show for their efforts in the regular season, and are 14th on the points table.
