ABA League Round 1, Monday, 1.10.2018:


Where? Morača, Podgorica

When? 21:00

Story of the game: A special night is coming up in Podgorica, as Budućnost VOLI will be hosting Krka in Morača. Not only will the home fans have an opportunity to greet their favourites for the first time after winning the ABA League trophy in an official game, but for several other reasons as well.

Krka are coming in Podgorica as the reigning ABA League 2 champions and they will immediately get to test themselves against ABA League champs of Budućnost. Also, it will be an emotional clash for the home side’s head coach Aleksandar Džikić, who will command his team against his former squad of Krka.

While Krka are coming to Morača without their key player Marko Jošilo, who is currently sidelined, Budućnost VOLI might not be able to count on Nikola Ivanović, who is questionable.

Match-up in focus: The main focus will be on the point guards, as huge burden will be on Nemanja Gordić in case Nikola Ivanović would be sidelined, on the side of the home team. On the other side, he will be tested by excellent Paolo Marinelli, one of the key players of Krka squad, that won the ABA League 2 trophy last season. Who will come out on top?

Head to head in regional league: In total 14:6; In Podgorica 9:1.
