Unics Kazan vs Real Madrid
Date: 09th February 2017
Kick-off: 17:00 CET
In the first Euroleague game on Thursday, Unics Kazan will be hosting Real Madrid in a game that could be over after just a single quarter.
It has been a tough season so far for Unics, as the club has performed pretty miserably overall. They have also been winless in the past four games, which has absolutely destroyed whatever hopes they have had to reach the playoffs. Unfortunately for Unics, they will have to face Real Madrid on Thursday evening, which means that their losing streak will most likely be extended to five matches.
Real Madrid are currently occupying the first spot in the regular season table, looking like strong contenders for the title. The Whites have not lost a single game in their past seven matches, which is undoubtedly quite impressive. On Thursday, they will be looking for their eighth consecutive victory and given that they will face Unics, it should not be so hard to achieve it.
