Six games will be played today, and five more tomorrow, November 1. Today’s programme starts at 18.00 CET as Budivelnik Kiev will host Partizan NIS Belgrade. Budivelnik Kiev didn’t start well in this season and at this moemnt they have 0-2 record.
Partizan NIS have 1-1 record and it seems that they are in good mood, as they going pretty well in ABA Adriatic league with 4-1 score.
Budivelnik Kiev will try to use home court and reach first win in this regular season but it will be tough goal. Not sure if we may consider any of teams as favorites, so maybe home court will give small advantage to Budivelnik Kiev.
In the Game of the Week, Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul hosts CSKA Moscow in the first meeting this decade between legendary head coaches Zeljko Obradovic and Ettore Messina.
Both teams currently with perfect 2-0 score and it will be interesting to see which team will remain undefeated after Game 3. Will Fenerbahce Ulker use home court or this won’t be big problem for CSKA Moscow?
