Baskonia vs Valencia Preview & Betting Tips
An exciting start to the quarterfinals of the ACB League! Valencia barely managed to beat the current champion Basconia and defend the home field. Valencia opened the game very well, and they won the first period (22-18), but in the second period, Baskonia demonstrated strength and won (26-13). In the second half, we watched a great battle between these teams, Valencia made a turnaround, but Basconia regained control of the game and the result. The guests kept the single-digit lead until the end of the game, but Valencia came out as the winner in the end.
In the winning team, Bojan Dubljevic scored 20 points in 27 minutes and added 3 rebounds and 2 assists. Also, Nikola Kalinic was impressive, scoring 18 points in 30 minutes, with 7 rebounds and 2 assists. Among the guests, Alec Peters scored 16 points, 2 rebounds, and 1 assist. The trio Dubljebic, Kalinic and Labeyrie had a great influence on the match's outcome, scoring a total of 23 points in the final 10 minutes.
Basconia lacked luck in the finale of the match to take a break from Jaume Ponsarnau and get one step closer to qualifying for the semifinals. As for this second game, Baskonia is now the host, and I think they will defend their fortress without any problems. And also, I would be surprised if this series ended in two games, so I trust the home team in this clash.
- Basconia has lost 6 of the previous 8 home games in all competitions.
- Basconia is now in a series of four consecutive defeats.
- Valencia has won 9 of the previous 10 games in all competitions.
- Basconia has won each of the previous 5 home matches against Valencia.
