RM vs MOS Dream11: Two teams heading in the wrong direction will meet when an in-form Real Madrid team entertain the defending champions CSKA Moscow in round-10 in EuroLeague matchup at WiZink Center, in Madrid, Spain.
Not so long ago, Moscow were sitting atop the EuroLeague table, after opening the season with four consecutive wins, but for reasons unknown, inconsistency have marred their progress and now the reigning champions find themselves at 5th on the points table. That said, Moscow are only two games away from reclaiming the top spot back from Anadolu Efes who beat Olimpia Milano in their game.
Real Madrid come into this game on the back of a resounding 104-76 win over BCK Khimki in round-9. It was a collective effort from Madrid as Facundo Campazzo, Edy Tavares, and Anthony Randolph set to tone from the off, while the likes of Jordan Mickey and Jaycee Carroll entered the double-digit mark from the bench to maintained the high level of performance.
CSKA Moscow suffered their third defeat in five games as they went down 80-70 against Saski Baskonia.
CSKA hold the 18-7 advantage over Real Madrid in the head-to-head encounters in Europe. CSKA beat Madrid three times in as many games last season.
Host: Real Madrid
Visitors: CSKA Moscow
Match Timing: November 23, @ 01:30 AM
Venue: WiZink Center, in Madrid, Spain
Facundo Campazzo: He is critical in every sense for Real Madrid. The 28-year-old scored 15 points in the last game. He is recording a team-high 5.3 assists per game this season and is the joint-leader in the league with 1.9 steals per game.
Anthony Randolph: Scored 19 points in the last game. He is the leading scorer for Real Madrid this season with 12.6 points per game. He is 2nd on the team's list with 1.0 steals per game.
Jordan Mickey: He is the 3rd best player on the team's roster this season with 9.3 points per game. He scored 13 points and had 4 assists in the last match.
Mike James: One of the best players in the EuroLeague at the moment. He not only is the highest scorer for the team this season with 19.7 points per game in the EuroLeague but leads the team in assist and free throws categories as well.
Darrun Hillard: Moscow's 2nd best player as he averages 12.1 points per game this season in the EuroLeague.
Real Madrid have Salah Mejri on their roster, but he is yet to make his EuroLeague debut this season. We expect this to be the case here as well. Felipe Reyes is expected to miss the game as head coach Pablo Laso is expected to stick with the squad that has brought so much success in the last few weeks.
Trey Thompkins made his EuroLeague debut for Real Madrid in Round 9 and should be on the roster, while teenage talent Mario Nakic is still waiting for his first outing as a Real Madrid player.
Real Madrid: Sergio Llull, Jordan Mickey, Trey Thompkins, Jeffrey Taylor, Anthony Randolph, Rudy Fernandez, Facundo Campazzo, Nicolas Laprovittola, Gabriel Deck, Usman Garuba, Jaycee Carroll, Walter Tavares
