Unics Kazan vs CSKA Moscow
Date: 28th March 2017
Kick-off: 17:00 CET
In the first Euroleague game on Friday, Unics Kazan are hosting CSKA Moscow, as the reigning champs are fighting to finish the regular season on top of the table.
Unics are undoubtedly the worst-performing team at the moment, as they have lost ten games in a row. The last win for the team from Kazan came in Round 17, when they defeated Brose Bamberg. Unics have been eliminated from the playoff race for a long time now and have nothing left fighting for. On Friday, they will CSKA, which means that the chances of their losing streak coming to an end are pretty small.
CSKA managed to defeat Darussafaka Dogus in the previous and thus earned a pretty important victory. Thanks to it, the reigning champs have secured home-court advantage throughout the playoffs, which is definitely more than important. Nonetheless, CSKA still have work to do, as they are aiming towards the top of the table.

Unics Kazan vs CSKA Moscow: Prediction
The game on Friday between Unics and CSKA will definitely be one-sided, even though the game will be played in Kazan. The reigning champs are undoubtedly the better team and are more motivated to get the win than the hosts.
Moreover, CSKA are better than Unics in almost statistical category. The Moscow club is the best offensive team in the Euroleague (87.6 ppg) and their defense has been slowly improving throughout the campaign (79.3 ppg). Unics are nowhere near CSKA in terms of offense, as they average 76.6 ppg and haven’t been that good on defense either, allowing 81.1 ppg.
Expect a one-sided game, in which CSKA will emerge victorious.
