Two teams heading int he opposite directions will meet as Crvena Zvezda host BC Khimki in the sixth round of Euro League 2019-20 season at Aleksandar Nikolić Hall.
Zvezda opened this week’s Euro League with a tough 85-70 defeat on the road against Anadolu Efes and now head back to their base to snap three-game losing run.
That said, Zvezda tasted their first win in six games when they defeated Mega Bemax 88-70 in an ABA League game last week but they know they will have to play out of their skins as the level of competition in Euro League is far higher.
BC Khimki, meanwhile, will fancy their chances against an out-of-form team as they come into this game on the back of three consecutive wins, with two of those coming in Euro League. They are 3rd on the points table as a result.
