Barcelona – UNICS: forecast and rate. Catalans will briskly spend the 1st half

Table of Contents


The Catalans are in very good shape. At home, Barcelona won all 7 matches, and the current winning streak stretched to 8 Victoria. In five home victories the difference in the score was not less than 13 points and only Olympiacos forced the “blue garnet” to play overtime and win there by a margin of 1 point.

Note that it is at home that Barcelona have a very decent defense. On average, the Catalans concede 74 points per match, and at home, the indicator decreases by 4 points. In the match with UNICS, which also has a strong defense, there will be a very interesting battle. Barça plays the first half of the matches especially powerfully at home. In seven meetings, the Spaniards have six wins, and on average in the first two quarters, Barça is gaining the best in the Euroleague 45.4 points.


The Kazan club has gained a furious pace, having won the last three matches, as well as 7 of the past 8 battles. Moreover, UNICS has won the last four away battles and boasts the best defense on the perimeter, allowing opponents to convert only 30% of their three-pointers. For UNICS leader Maria Herzonya, the match will be especially important, because at the age of 17 he joined Barça and spent three seasons for it. Note that the last six victories of UNICS were with a double-digit advantage and now the team is ready very well, it is quite capable of resisting even in Spain.


On the one hand, one could consider a bet on guests with a handicap (+8), because since the beginning of the season, Kazan only lost in a failed game with Fenerbahce by a large margin, but they still prefer the bet on Barcelona in the first half with handicap (-3). UNICS averaged 38 points away in the first half, seven points less than their opponents and won the first half just three times in seven games.
