ABA League Round 9, Friday, 4 December 2020:


Where? Dražen Petrović Arena, Zagreb

When? 20:00

Story of the game: In the opening game of the ABA League Round 9, Cibona will be hosting FMP in a game, that will be of exceptional importance for both sides, as they will be fighting for their third win this season, that would take the winning squad towards the middle of the standings.

However, it’s clear that right now the two squads do not have the same situation, as Cibona have played eight games so far and FMP only 5 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has caused them plenty of problems.

Therefore, many are expecting that FMP could grab a new pair of points this time, but it’s worth mentioning that Cibona have the home court advantage and that when playing in Zagreb, Cibona have historically been more successful than FMP in their mutual encounters.

How will it unfold this time?

Match-up in focus: Youth vs. experience! Roko Prkačin vs. Sava Lešić! Who of them will prevail this time under both rims? Currently, Prkačin is having 11.4 points and 6.7 rebounds per game and Lešić is averaging 11.6 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. How about this time?

Head to head in the regional league: in total 8:15; In Zagreb 7:4.
