Crvena Zvezda Belgrade vs Unics Kazan
Date: 31st March 2017
Kick-off: 19:00 CET
On Friday evening, Crvena Zvezda Belgrade will be hosting Unics Kazan in a game where they could have potentially booked their place in the playoffs.
Crvena Zvezda have not been in their best form lately, as they have lost five of their last eight games, thus dropping to the eight spot in the standings. Darussafaka won their game at Bamberg , therefore this match has no more stake for either team. The serbs have an important match in ABA league on Tuesday against Buducnost followed by the decisive match in Istanbul 3 days later. So basically it will be the most important week of the season for Zvezda.
Unics are nowhere near the playoffs, as they have suffered 12 consecutive losses. The club from Kazan is currently occupying the second-to-last spot in the regular standings, but quite soon, they could find themselves dead last. On Friday, Unics will visit Crvena Zvezda in a game that will be quite hard for them.

Crvena Zvezda Belgrade vs Unics Kazan: Prediction
Crvena Zvezda are the second-worst team in the Euroleague, as they barely average 73.7 ppg. However, their defense has been the best in the competition, as they are limiting their opponents to an impressive 73.6 ppg. Unics have performed slightly better on offense, averaging 76.5 ppg on offense and allowing 81.2 ppg.
As I stated above, this match has no more stake for Zvezda as the qualification will be played in Turkey, no matter what they do here. If they want to qualify they must beat Darussafaka away.
