ZEN vs KB Dream11 Match Prediction


ZEN vs KB Dream11: Two teams struggling for consistency will lock horns when Zenit Saint Petersburg play host to Saski Baskonia in EuroLeague at Yubileyny Sports Palace on Wednesday night (IST).
Zenit are rock-bottom in EuroLeague standing coming into this game having won five times in 18 matches. However, of those five wins, three have come in the last six games. That shows that Zenit have a bit momentum.
Saski Baskonia, on the other hand, are one of the teams looking to make the cut into the postseason. They are within a manageable distance despite sitting 14th on the points table. The gap between Saski and top-8 will be only one game if they win this game, with a couple of results go in their favour.
