ABA League Round 21, Sunday, 8.3.2020:
Where? Krešimir Ćosić Arena
Story of the game: Big game is coming up in Višnjik in the last ABA League clash for the 2019/20 ABA League season in Zadar. The Dalmatians will be hosting Koper Primorska in the game, that could be decisive for the outcome of the season for each of the two squads.
With 2 rounds left to be played in the ABA League season, Zadar are placed in the last place in the standings, with one win less on their record than Krka, Cibona and Mega Bemax. So they can still escape the bottom, but they desperately need to win.
On the other side, Koper Primorska are one of the three teams, that are still sharing the fourth place in the standings with 12 wins on their record, besides Cedevita Olimpija and Mornar. They need to win to stay in the Playoffs race, while a defeat would probably already knock them out of the race.
Both of the squads have won their last ABA League game, but Koper Primorska have been much more successful lately, having won four of their last five games, while Zadar have won only one.
