They hold a 4-2 record so far, and they will be keen to upgrade this to a 5-2 record with this home game. With an average of 76.3 points per game, they have the firepower to take down their opponents, but it is worth noting that Belgrade have scored an average of 76.2 points per season. This is a game between two sides that score at a similar rate.

Things are tough for the team from Belgrade

Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade hold a 1-5 record in the Top 16 and an overall record of 7-9 record in the Euroleague this season.

Boban Marjanovic is a top player for the Belgrade side, offering up an average of 15.7 points and an average of 9.9 rebounds. They can also look to Marcus Williams for support, as he has managed to deliver an average of 6.5 assists per game this season.

Belgrade are currently top of the Adriatic League, sitting with a 20-1 record. Their most recent game was a loss to Krka, the final score ending up 77-67.
