Tonight we′ll know who the new champion in EUROHOLD Balkan League will be. At 19.30 hrs local time in Samokov (18.30 CET) BC Rilski Sportist is hosting KB Sigal Prishtina in the second game of the Big Final in the competition. After the first game Sigal has 2-point advantage which means that everything is still open.

Last week Rilski did a good job of coming out determined and had a great start to the game. The team from Samokov played well for most of the time, except in the first minutes of the last quarter. However the players bounced back and managed to cut in to the deficit and leave themselves a big chance at home. Zarko Rakocevic and Vernon Taylor were the main go-to guys for Rilski in Prishtina and they are expected to do the same. The captain Bozov will be very very important tonight due to his experience and he′ll have to lead his teammates in key moments. The best coach of the season - Rosen Barchovski will also count a lot on Zlatin Georgiev and Tony Gugino while the Julian Norfleet and Simeon Iliev will have to provide the spark off the bench.

Sigal Prishtina on the other hand is also coming very determined to leave with the trophy. The team didn′t play its best game at home but that′s also because of the way Rilski performed. Dardan Berisha and Edin Bavcic are the two main players of Sigal and are two of the best in EUROHOLD Balkan League. Their performance is key to the way their team plays and they are the ones to watch out tonight. Of course Sigal has a deep rotation and is using 8-9 players which may also prove to be important. Jordan Hulls, Julian Mavunga and Bojan Trajkovski have had their share of good games and Demontez Stitt and Edmond Azemi will also get minutes and head coach Ilievski would probably also use a high line-up with Trajkovski, Mavunga and Bavcic that had some success in Game 1.

What is certain is that both teams are going to play extremely hard in order to get the trophy. That surely guarantees a great match-up and intensified battle from first to the last second.   Rilski Sportist for second time or Sigal Prishtina for first? This is the question which answer we are going to find out tonight.
