AdmiralBet ABA League Round 23, Sunday, 26 March 2023:
PARTIZAN MOZZART BET - CEDEVITA OLIMPIJA
Where? Štark Arena, Belgrade
Story of the game: Another very special game will be held in Štark Arena, Belgrade, where Partizan Mozzart Bet are about to host Cedevita Olimpija in this week’s NLB Match of the Round.
Just two days after their big win against Olympiacos Piraeus in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, Partizan Mozzart Bet are in front of another very important game. Partizan Mozzart Bet (19-2) are currently holding the first place on the standings with one win more than their Crvena zvezda Meridianbet (18-3) and if the black-and-whites want to stay at the top spot they will need to keep that 1-win gap from their arch rivals as they do not have a better head-to-head score against the red-and-whites.
Meanwhile Cedevita Olimpija are fighting for the 3rd place with Budućnost VOLI and the two teams are currently all tied with the overall score of 15-6. The Dragons haven’t really been in good form recently, which is why they parted ways with head coach Jurica Golemac, but it should be mentioned that they know how to play against Partizan Mozzart Bet as they triumphed in 5 out of 7 games against the Belgrade team.
In the first part of the 2022/23 season, Cedevita Olimpija defeated Partizan Mozzart Bet by 77:74.
Match-up in focus: Dante Exum (Partizan Mozzart Bet) vs. Yogi Ferrell (Cedevita Olimpija).
Exum is playing a fantastic season and he is the top scorer of Partizan Mozzart Bet team in AdmiralBet ABA League with 11.6 points per game. At the same time, Ferrell is a true leader of Cedevita Olimpija and he is the team top scorer with 16.4 points per game.
This battle of point guards may determine many things in the upcoming game.
Head-to-head in the regional league: In total 2:5; In Belgrade 2:1.
