Unics Kazan to bounce back from their first defeat
This is Unics Kazan’s sixth participation in the Euroleague since 2016. Notably, Kazan’s best achievement in Europe is winning the EuroCup in 2011 and Eurochallenge in 2004. Domestically the Russian team finished second in the VTB United League last season. That was their best finish. Also, Kazan have three Russian Cup wins.
In their first match of the Euroleague this season, Kazan lost narrowly to Zenit by one point. In fact, coach Perasovic’s side won the first and last quarter of the game. However, Kazan players couldn’t respond to Zenit’s last quarter surge who opened a ten-point gap. And when they did in the end with a 9-0 run it was too little too late.
Unics Kazan Key Stats

Monaco chasing a second straight win
Monaco are making their debut in the Euroleague this season after winning the EuroCup last season. Domestically, the Monegasque also have a modest history, winning the Fench A-League cup three times as their best achievement.
During their first match of the season in the Euroleague, Monaco had an impressive win over six-time champions Panathinaikos. Danilo Andjusic led Monaco with 17 points while Mike James added 11. Certainly, it was a good team effort by Monaco as five players scored ten points or more.
Monaco Key Stats
- Monaco are averaging 78 points per game this season
- The Red and Whites made 43% of their field goals against Panathinaikos
- Andjusic’s team won the first three-quarters of the game against Panathinaikos
Unics Kazan vs Monaco Prediction
Despite the fact that Monaco won the last four competitive h2h matches, still, the bookies are favoring Unics Kazan to win. With both teams having lots of scoring talent in their team, we expect a high-scoring game.
To illustrate, over160 points was the total in three of the last four competitive games. However, the defense will be key and may decide the outcome of this match. Kazan have many players to offer coach Perasovic defensive options and surely he will make the most of it.
In the end, we think both teams are of similar strength and it will be best to bet on the total points of the match. As for our second prediction, Kazan won the first quarter of their last two matches and we will back them to repeat the feat against Monaco.
