ABA League Round 19, Saturday, 8.2.2020:
Where? Stožice Arena, Ljubljana
Story of the game: A very important clash is coming up for both sides on Saturday night in Stožice Arena, as Cedevita Olimpija will be taking on Zadar in the 19th round of the ABA League season.
There is no need to especially emphasize what winning would mean for both sides, as Cedevita Olimpija need a pair of points in their battle for the ABA League Playoffs, while on the other side Zadar desperately need to win in order to escape the last place in the standings which means relegation to the ABA League 2.
Besides that, the game will have a special importance for Cedevita Olimpija, which will be also battling for their pride, in order to demonstrate to their fans in Ljubljana, that their 38-point defeat in the first half of the season on the road in Zadar was only a coincidence.
Lately, none of the two teams were shining, as both of them have won only one game in their last five. But, while Zadar are on a 4-game winless streak, Cedevita Olimpija have won their last game.
