It is a well-worked group and we will try our best to defend our game. We have to control the pace and not let them play their game

    BC Neptunas - Happy Casa Brindisi (15.10.2019)

    Both teams with no minor injury problems for this clash.

    Neptunas has met six Italian clubs in the Champions League and achieved five victories. Although the statistics are good for the Neptunas team from Klaipeda, on Tuesday night they are waiting for a very hard oponent to beat.

    Coach of Neptunas: I think we arere ready. We did our homework. Of course, it is not easy, because we were playing with Kaunas Zalgiris on Sunday, so we had one day to prepare for the match. There is always a shortage of time, but we will be ready. There are five Americans on the Brindisi team, they make up the starting five and the whole base. Most of the Happy Casa duel relies on them. It is open and fast basketball, lots of improvisation. In defense, Brindisi basketball players take a lot of risks, but thanks to that risk they take a lot of balls and run for quick attacks. The fans in Klaipeda are always very noisy, they become the sixth player on the field and an important factor in the match.We must stop their leaders, not give them the freedom to accelerate. We must not be mistaken in attacking to prevent the Italians from fleeing and attacking in a fast or early attack where they are very good. The main focus is to slow down the pace and not let your opponents realize their weapons.

    The Champions League debutant, Happy Casa Brindisi, has made a powerful start to the season in the Italian Championship. In the first round, Francesco Vituccis team lost to Brescia, but then won three games, including Euroleague side Armani Milano. This series of victories allowed Happy Casa to advance to second place in the league.

      VEF Riga - KK Mornar Bar (15.10.2019)

      VEF Riga,
      according to sport director, will play with best possible team. Riga is weaponed by 5 foreign players now with all joined the team before the season. USA guards Lester Medford (joined from MZT Skopje), Ron Curry from Falco and last USA forward LaQuinton Ross (playing in D-league). Other two foreign players are finland national team player Alexander Madsen (move from USK Prague) and croatian center Kristijan Krajina (last seaston rotation player of ABA league side KK Zadar). VEF Riga team started the season with four wins in the Latvian-Estonian Basketball League tournament, two of them finishing (over Kalev / TLU 99:96, over BC Liepaja 76:70).

      Sport director of VEF Riga: The team is strong in terms of lineup. I think Mornar Bar and Nizhny Novgorod are some of the strongest teams to qualify, so we did not really do well with our opponents. But I think tomorrow will be a good game.Some players have micro-injuries, but that's normal. There are no major injuries on the team right now.I think it is good to start the tournament at home. Because if we start with a win, it is a good push for the next games.

      Mornar Bar will play still without Nemanja Vranjes, who was key player of the last season, but Mornar have quite huge roster.

      Mornar Bar team made the biggest success in the clubs 45-year history in the 2018 season when they won the title of Montenegrin champion. Last year was not so successful, but in the summer the team strengthened considerably. Montenegrin team players Derek Nidham and Sead Sehovic, Slovenian center Mirza Begic, and Georgia-USA guard Jacob Pullen have joined. The line-up will also included Montenegrin forward Milko Bjelica, who played at World Cup 2019.

      Coach of Mornar Bar: We are attacking every trophy this year. We must not skip the Fiba Champions League without thinking of the ABA League. Before the ABA league game with Igokea, I never looked at the Riga team, because my principle is to go game by game. At the moment, we are only thinking about VEF Riga, and then we are going to the Partizan derby. On the downside, we had very little time to prepare for the match in Riga. My asistants did some scouting and it is clear that a tough game is ahead of us. We respect every opponent, but we believe in ourselves, because they only make a team of experienced, proven players. We are entering a deadly rhythm. Latvia is a country of basketball. They have a style with a lot of runs and a lot of shots for three points. If they are allowed to swing, they can surprise anyone. And we have our trump cards, we will look to use every opportunity on the side, if it comes to us, to get points.

        PAOK Thessaloniki - Besiktas Sompo Japan (15.10.2019)

        may do without service of key USA player Zane Knowles. The PAOK center that has viral symptoms has been examined by a physician yesterday morning, his participation in the Basketball Champions League premiere will depend on his condition on Tuesday.

        Coach of PAOK before the match: It is a game against a big opponent with very different data from ours. I think this years Basketball Champions League event is an opportunity for us to give some young players experiences that will prove useful to them in the Greek league and in the future. Beyond that, these games will help us build the mindset and perception needed to achieve our domestic goals. This does not mean that we will not try to claim the best we can in all Basketball Champions League games. In anyone's mind, whether playing in Greece or in a European event, it is about playing for the best and the team achieving as many wins as possible. Looking at our work, we had a problem with Zane Knowles, who is sick, but we hope to be able to play tomorrow. Our roster is not big, as you know, and every absence is important. "

        About Besiktas: We know the style of her coach, Dusko Ivanovic, who has been playing a very aggressive defense for years. He has very athletic kids in all positions, with Shaquille McKissic, who is very strong, but also with Jodan Theodore and Todrick Gother we know from the Greek league. It's a very athletic team, running and pressing hard on defense. The area that needs a lot of attention is its defense, and we've been trying to adapt since yesterday as we started preparing for this game. Beyond that, if we don't have problems in attack and don't make a lot of mistakes, I think we can have luck. "

        Besiktas, who not have any injured player, in this year's championship, after three games, has a 1-2 record, losing at home to champion Anadolu Efes and away against Galatasaray. On the bench is from the start of last season Montenegro Dusko Ivanovic, who spent the 2014-2015 season off the Panathinaikos bench and has previously coached teams such as Barcelona, Baskonia and Khimki. In the team's roster, there are two players who have been past the Greek league in the recent past. This is Jordan Theodore, who played for AEK last year and Toddrick Gotcher, who played for Korivos Amaliada for the 2016-2017 season and for Lefnos Hephaestus last year. Besiktas' roster includes two more Americans: Shaquille McKissic, who has faced PAOK with Usak in the past, and James McAdoo, who has won two NBA championships with the Golden State Warriors. Besiktas's top scorer in the first three league games is McKissic with 13.3 points per game, followed by Turkish power forward Burak Yildizli with 12.3 points per game.

          SIG Strasgbourg - Filou Oostende (15.10.2019)

          Vincent Collet (Strasbourg): We are expecting the first game at home, so we can not make a mistake. We want to get involved in the fight cause we want to qualify. We have a group that we know. It will not be easy to get out, that's why tomorrow's match is so important, we want to start with a win at home.

          About lost in last league round: Saturday's defeat can be explained firstly by the difference in energy between the two teams: if there is one thing that matters in relation to Saturday's match, it is first of all to be much more In addition, it is very suitable for the opponent we are going to play in. If we have to dominate them somewhere to win, it is in this category. found an aggressiveness and an intensity that we did not have Saturday.We took 97 points.This is not possible, whatever the adversary and the competition.

          About opponent: They kept some players. They kept a block and added athletic value with Thompson, McIntosh, Sylla. They are walking in the Belgian league. It's a dangerous team. They will be competitive in BCL this year even more than last year.

          About opponents in group: Sassari and Ankara are the favorites in this group and behind them there are a number of teams that will fight for the third and four seat.

          SIG Strasbourg & FILOU Oostende are 2 of the 9 teams starting their 4th season in the Basketball Champions League - We played against each other 4 times of which Ostende could only win once. Only one head coach won more home games in the Basketball Champions League than Vincent Collet (18) - Walter De Raffaele, 21 won home games with Umana Reyer Venezia.

            Rasta Vechta - Anwil Wloclawek (15.10.2019)

            ASTA Vechta celebrates his eagerly awaited premiere in the European Cup. And right at the beginning it gets RASTA to do with European extra class. Because with Anwil Wloclawek comes the Polish champion from 2018 and 2019 and brings plenty of stars to Germany.

            Max DiLeo (player of Vechta): I have never played international cup before, that will be a really cool experience. The fact that we start at Rasta Dome at home is all the more cool - the atmosphere will be great again. Vechta is a clean sheet in the competition and enters the group stage as a clear outsider. As an excuse that should not apply.Great challenges await us. No team participates in the European Cup, so as not to give everything to win. We can not take any opponent lightly. However, it is clear to us that in every game we are going with the same attitude that we always want to play for victory.

            Igor Milicic (coach of Anwil): Last season this team was the black horse of the German league, they finished fourth. In the summer, however, a lot of changes in the composition, because other clubs took the best basketball players. This is an aggressive team in defense that pushes the ball forward, counterattacks, but also threatens with throws for three points.
            About high quality of his team:. Certainly one that does not allow us to treat us as an outsider in a clash with any rival in the Champions League group. Everyone worked intensively in the preparatory period, there were no injuries until the Super Cup. It's hard, that's life. Szymons (rotation player Szewczyk) absence will last three or four weeks, we hope so.

              Iberostar Tenerife - Nizhny Novgorod (15.10.2019)

              Tenerife will play with all posible players today.

              Tenerife coach Vidorreta about Novgorod: Now a demanding match comes, they have a great squad. The key is their Russian players and coach, they have been together for many years. They have won against Zenit. We have to be at the same level of intensity. They have talented players but also great dynamics as a block from an aggressive defense. In attack we have to be able to read their different defenses well in individual. We will seek to be fluent in front of a team that makes it difficult.

              Nizhny Nogorov reached a place in the FIBA Champions League after eliminating in the pre-Warsaw phase, but remember that last season he reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League, after eliminating Reyer Venezia in the round of 16. This weekend, the Novgorod defeated the St. Petersburg Zenit of Joan Plaza and the former Aurinegros Tim Abromaitis, Colton Iverson and Mateusz Ponitka (69-76), in a match corresponding to the VTB League, something that he also did in preseason , coinciding with the Yaroslavl Cup.
              The Novgorod has in its ranks the ex-ACB, Alec Brown, as well as the American Brandon Brown, Chavaughn Lewis and Darral Willis, players incorporated this summer to the roster from Bulgaria, Estonia and Greece. Among its list of nationals, the presence of the Evgenii Baburin, international with its country in the recent World Cup in China, stands out.

              Zoran Lukic (coach of Novgorod): I consider Tenerife to be the favorite of our group. This is enough to understand what game awaits us.

              Also Novgorod will have all players ready for the game.

                AEK Athens - Paul Lacq Ortez (16.10.2019)


                will miss rotation powerforward Stefan Jankovic, otherwise team is complete.

                Elias Papatheodorou (AEK): It has the characteristics that almost all French teams have and this is in stark contrast to the game we play in Greece. We have to control the pace, not let them run because they are good athletes. But that does not mean that we will freeze the game. We want to play smart, fast and creative. The team will be good and can reach quite high this year as well. I don't want to say big words like we're going to get it, but we have to have goals and see.

                French PAU are coming to Athens after defeating Le Portel (64-57) and with a 2-2 record in the French league. It's still early in the season, but there are certainly some Ortez players that stand out. First and best is 28-year-old guard Tireus McGee (No. 3). The American, with many years in Italy (Orlando, Cremona, Venice, Pistoia, Sassari), won the FIBA **8203;**8203;Europe Cup last year with Gianmarco Pozzeko's team. In four games this year he has averaged 14.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists. Following is 29-year-old guard Travis Leslie (No. 6), who started his career with the Clippers (2011) and has been in France since 2017 (Levallois, Bullazac, Ortez). He averages 14.8 points and 3.8 rebounds. Another new player at Pau is 31-year-old center-back Nicholas De Jong (# 37), who averages 11.8 points and 4.5 rebounds in four games.

                PAU traveled with best possible squad.

                  ERA Nymburk - Brose Bamberg (16.10.2019)

                  (complete squad) underwent a series of changes and basically changed the whole alien lineup when the American beers Zach Hankins, Hayden Dalton, the quarterbacks Roko Rogic and Deishuan Booker and the wing of Ivan Almeida came.

                  Martin Peterka (Nymburk) about opponents in group: Tenerife will definitely be the strongest, which is the first favorite. We also know Bamberg, who changed the team a lot, but he will still be a favorite to advance with Tenerife. But we also want to be as high as possible.

                  Martin Peterka (Nymburk) about Bamberg: There was almost no one from last season in Bamberg. I remember the quarterback of Paris Lee who played for Antwerp. The manager and coach came from there, so they will probably play in a similar style to last year's Antwerp. It is a brand new team for us and we have to load it in the video.

                  Petr Safarcik (Nymburk) - I expect that the euphoria of the World Cup will also be brought to the club level. I hope people come because we need them very much. Right from the start we have a tough opponent, but when you have your audience in your back, it is played quite differently. We need to win home games. And we start with two matches at home, so it would be ideal to win both and make full use of the home environment and the form of the boys from the national team

                  Bamberg (complete squad) was not very successful in the Final Four and the club made a radical change. He brought the key characters from Antwerp, the biggest surprise of last season. Along with Lea de Rycke's Sports Director, Roel Moors' best coach of last season and Paris Lee's quarterback came from Belgium. Before him is the difficult task of replacing Tyrese Rice, the most useful player of last season. However, he was placed in the top five of the competition and in the summer he graduated from the NBA Summer League. But the whole Bamberg team has changed significantly. Gone are Ricky Hickman and Nikos Zisis, Augustine Rubit and Cliff Alexander, Patrick Heckmann and Arnoldas Kulboka. New faces in the team include Lee's shooter Kameron Taylor, Venezuelan Michael Carrera, German representative Christian Sengfelder and Egyptian pivot Asem Marei, who was last year's best rebounder of the FIBA Europe Cup in the Pinar short.

                  Roel Moors (coach of Bamberg): Czech teams are always very organized and disciplined. That was not least seen at the World Cup. This also applies to Nymburk. They make up the majority of internationals. Besides, it is always difficult to play there. Therefore, it is particularly important to focus on the game from the beginning. We have had many good approaches in the last few games, but also many discrepancies. It is important to further minimize.

                    Polski Cukier Torun - Hapoel Holon under 168.5
                    1.87 (Pinnacle)

                    Cukier without starting center Damian Kulig (18 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 3 APG). It's a big lost for attack of team from Torun. In PLK team from Poland played with teams with very high pace and poor defence - Stelmet, Dabrowa, Astoria. For me it's too big line now. CL games have almost a good defence with average pace. I think Cukier lost quality in offence and game end with 165 points or smaller.

                      Polski Cukier Torun - Dinamo Sassari over 169.5
                      1.88 (Pinnacle)

                      Polski Cukier lost a lot of points in the last two matches without Damian Kulig - 122 points with Holon and 104 with King. Sassari is also a team that has a wide composition and plays very quickly. Polski Cukier will be in an 8-person rotation today without Jakub Schenk (reserve PG). This means Chris Wright (PG) thick minutes, who only plays fast actions and Hornsby (SG) does the same. So both key players for Polski Cukier will play fast, and defense doesn't think it will get any better. I expect another shooting cannonade from both sides and again there can be a very fat result.

                      05/11/2019 20:00 CET
                      Nymburk - Tenerife over 156
                      1.90 (Pinnacle)

                      Nymburk plays at a great pace similar to Polish teams. In his league he basically sparring and throws 90-100 points to his opponents. Tenerife is a pack of players with well-known players in European basketball who guarantee quality. With medium shooting form and tempo that Nymburk plays normally, this line should enter easy.

                        1.88 (Pinnacle)

                        I need to play bet only to play over points in Anwil matches in LM. Anwil keeps playing forward and does not stop. He can't defend and play controlled basketball. Another match for 180 points or more? I think yes.

                          1.91 (Pinnacle)

                          Polski Cukier has finally been playing with Damian Kulig and Jakub Schenk for some time. In my opinion, this team is not as weak as the results and the balance in the Champions League. Strasbourg is also no a top team in CL and for me is medium CL team. Cukier in the league recently plays very confidently and smashes its opponents. In my opinion, Kulig will be able to fight with the French on his return and the handicap is too high. Let me remind you that in the first match Cukier won high.

                            Anwil Wloclawek - San Pablo Burgos over 173
                            1.86 (Pinnacle)

                            Burgos is an excellent opponent to make an offensive battle. The first match in Burgos was 110:78 and 188 points. Anwil continues to play quickly and weakly in defense. Recent PLK matches show that if someone approaches the game strongly offensively and plays quickly, +175 points in Anwil matches are practically always on fast pace with poor defence and only poor performance on shooting can not beat it line. I expect matches today like in Burgos, Jerusalem or a week ago with Vechta. Fast pace and attack with many points.
