ABA League Round 20, Sunday, 1.3.2020:
Where? Ranko Žeravica Sports Hall, Belgrade
Story of the game: In the opening game of the Sunday’s ABA League program, Mega Bemax will be hosting Igokea at home in Ranko Žeravica Sports Hall. It will be one of the most important games of the season for sure for Mega Bemax, as they need to win in order to get away from the danger zone near the bottom of the standings and thus avoid relegation to the ABA League 2.
On the other side, Igokea seem to have already accomplished their main goal of securing another season in the ABA League, however, they do not want to let anything surprise them and will therefore give their best in order to properly challenge Mega on the road in Belgrade.
What goes in Mega Bemax’s favour is the home court advantage, as in the clashes of the two sides, Mega Bemax have prevailed over Igokea in 5 out of 6 home court encounters. And one thing is certain – one team’s winning run will end in Belgrade, as both of them have been victorious last round, with Mega Bemax winning 2 out of their last 5 games and Igokea 3 of their last five games.
Who will be more successful this time around?
