Levski Lukoil and Tirana looking to stop the bad run of form
The one game in SIGAL-UNIQA Balkan League for tonight sees BC Levski Lukoil taking on SK Tirana. It will start at 18.30 hrs local time and will be broadcast LIVE on BNT and SportMedia.tv.
Both teams are not in the best shape and their recent form has not been good. Levski lost the last two games in the competition while the Albanians have five defeats in a row. That′s why both teams will be trying to give their all and will hope to put the bad luck behind. It′s clear that both teams can′t go to the Final Four directly but will try to get the best possible position before the playoffs.
Levski needs to improve a lot as in the last games the team is not looking good. The players of coach Papazov will try to regain their best form and to make up for the defeats in the recent days. Papazov is using a deep rotation and is giving chance to everybody so it′s up to the players to perform. Levski has 3-5 record in the league so it needs to win in order not to get into any more trouble.
Tirana is coming fresh off a Albanian cup trophy but of course now the other team is much stronger. Shima and Hysenagolli are playing well but they need more help from the likes of Brchkov, Abdul-Bassit and Strowbridge. Those are the main players the Albanians count on so they′ll need to be at a 100% in order for the team to have any chance of doing something.
