Zenit St. Petersburg to cement their place in the final eight

In that game, they shot 55% field goals from all distances, 66% from two-point

(24-36) distance and 33% from the three-point range (6-18). 

Coach Xavi Pascual knows they are facing a very good team who are eager to enter the playoffs after back-to-back wins thus must prepare very well for this match.

Valencia Basket pushing for a place in the final eight

Valencia are ninth in the Euroleague standings and two games away from a top-eight finish. They are on a two-game-winning run against Real Madrid and CSKA Moscow and would like to continue that run coming to St. Petersburg on Thursday.

In their last match against Real Madrid, Valencia shot 56.9% from all distances, 65% from two points (21-32), and 46.2% from the three-point range (12-26).

They are a very strong shooting team as they are fourth in the Euroleague with a 50.9% shooting average and coach Jaume Ponsarnau will hope his team will be at the same level of shooting in their visit to St. Petersburg.

Ket Stats

  • Zenit are fifth in the Euroleague with 48.2% field goals
  • Valencia are fourth in the Euroleague with 49.4% field goals
  • Zenit have a 37.5% shooting percentage from 3-point range
  • Valencia have a 36.6% shooting percentage from 3-point range

Zenit St. Petersburg vs Valencia Basket Prediction

Both of these teams are in a good form recently and have been scoring very well. They have a quite high percentage in shooting this season and especially from the 3-point range as we can see in their statistics.

We believe they will both take their chances of shooting from outside and that will result in a high-scoring game if they can sustain their high shooting percentage.

We predict over 155.5 total points in this game.
