MOS Vs VAL Fantasy Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Valencia look to make further strides in the points tally as the side scrummages for its second straight win today.
Registering their third win in four games in the Euroleague 2020-21 after getting the better of Kaunas, Valencia went all the way into fourth place. The side’s start to life in the marquee league has been a stupendous one with the club taking on shape as one of the firm challengers for the glistening trophy this season.
Its been the side’s defensive setup which has worked quietly in the backdrop to register pathbreaking performances for the club. The side has not only protected its rim but has occulted almost anything sent down its paint, a club which has turned the best of attacking setups white as a sheet.
Where everyone has found it extremely tough to get out of the side’s hair, CSKA Moscow hardly look a side who’ll be able to achieve the task. The side’s 86-84 defeat the last time around was its second on the spin to see the club record its third defeat in five matchups this season.
MOS Vs VAL Fantasy Probable Winner
While CSKA Moscow did manage to take their bygone affair against Crvena all the way down into overtime, the club failed to get past the fishing line owing to its defensive setup. They’ll make for a deserving opposition today but yet again falter due to their wavering backline.

He might not have been at his best when shooting points the last time around but Mike James still ended up as a crucial contributor for his side. He had 8 dimes along with his 9 points, numbers which yet again paid testament to his electric performer as a point guard.
Daniel Hackett finally showed why CSKA Moscow had opted for his services this season. He ended up going on a rampage, dropping 29 points for his side, a player capable of resulting in an uptick in his side’s season.
Sam Van Rossom will become the first name to be ingrained in our team from Valencia for the showdown. The player’s ability to work his way past tight spaces and laydown the ball for his counterparts saw him emerge with a neat 8 dimes the last time around.
Paired alongside him for the upcoming tie is Vanja Marinovic who shot from the deep with a high conversion rate the last time around to end up with 16 points in his kitty.
With CSKA Moscow being fully aware that the only way they can pull off a win today is by delivering a stunning attacking display, Will Clyburn will be handed over a free hand to express himself. His 18 points the last time around alluded towards his affinity for the triples, a skill set which makes him a must have pick for the contest.
The only CSKA Moscow player who has been interested in bolstering his side’s defensive setup this season, Tornike Shengelia’s tenacity and ability to register his boards makes him our pick from the club.
Up against a side which just can’t defend, Louis Labeyrie can end up filling his shoes with the jump points.
He is joined up by Bojan Dubljevic who needed little over 20 minutes the last time around to end as his team’s leading scorer on the day with 16 points.
The manner in which Mike is controlling the court for his side sees him be our star player while Clyburn is the pro player.
Mike, Hackett, Sam, Vanja, Clyburn, Shengelia, Labeyrie, Bojan
