AdmiralBet ABA League Round 8, Saturday, 26 November 2022:
CEDEVITA OLIMPIJA - ZADAR
Where? Morača Sports Hall, Podgorica
Story of the game: In the legendary Tivoli Sports Hall in Ljubljana, Cedevita Olimpija will be hosting Zadar in the Round 8 of the AdmiralBet ABA League season.
It is a game of two squads, that are currently in a similar position in the standings after 7 rounds, as each of them have not only won 4 games so far, but each of them have also celebrated 3 times in their last 5 appearances.
However, it’s worth noting that the Dragons are heading into the game after an away victory over Igokea m:tel, while Zadar have been defeated at home in Round 7 by Budućnost VOLI. Also, Cedevita Olimpija have grabbed 4 wins in 6 games played so far, while Zadar have played 7.
However, what remains is the fact, that it is impossible to predict the outcome of the game in Tivoli, as have always been the games between the Ljubljana and Zadar sides.
Match-up in focus: The same question that has been set ahead of every single Zadar game this season in the AdmiralBet ABA League is here again – can anyone stop Luka Božić? The Dalmatian forward has been shining all around the court this season and is currently the top scorer, rebounder and passer of Zadar, averaging 30.3 points, 9.8 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game. On the other side, Edo Murić, Slovenia National Team member with vast experience and famous for his excellent defensive skills, will try to shadow him this time. Can he do it? Let’s tune in on Saturday night and find out!
Head-to-head score in the regional league: In total 4:2; In Ljubljana 2:1.
