ABA League Round 4, Friday, 25.10.2019:


Where? Krešimir Ćosić Arena, Zadar

Where? 20:00

Story of the game: All eyes of the basketball fans in the region will be set on Krešimir Ćosić Hall on Friday night, as two eternal rivals – Zadar and Cibona – will be battling for their first win of the season in Krešimir Ćosić Arena in the fourth round opener.

As mentioned, besides the eternal rivalry, the stakes will be especially high this time around since both teams will be battling to avoid the danger zone at the bottom of the standings, as none of them have achieved victories so far this season and for one of the two sides, this will be the ice-breaker.

Who would you put your money on this time?

Match-up in focus: There will be a true sharp-shooting contest seen on court between Bryon Allen of Zadar and Shane Gibson of Cibona. While Allen is averaging 15.3 points per game so far in the ABA League, Gibson is averaging 12.7 points per game. Who will be more prolific this time?

Head to head in the regional league: In total 20:14; In Zadar 14:3.
