The Bulgarian derby opens up the week
The last week before the break in the Balkan League will start with a Bulgarian derby. At 18.30 hrs local time in Plovdiv BC Academic Bultex 99 will host BC Beroe as both sides will be going for the win.
Academic had its first victory of the season last week in Prizren and will look to continue in the same way. The Plovdiv side counts a lot on the performance of Vasil Bachev and Daishon Knight who are ones again expected to be the main go-to-players. For a win against Beroe however the likes of Olisemeka, Vitkovic, Hristov and Vujovic will also have to step up and perform to the taks. Academic is in a bad run of results and a win tonight is really important for the team.
Beroe on the other side has two wins in BIBL and is trying to get the third one. The good news for the team is that the injured players are almost 100% fit and head coach Minchev will be able to count on a full roster. On the paper Beroe has a deeper squad and will try to use that. However the good form of Frankamp and Bachynski is the one carrying them so far but they are just a part of what Beroe has gathered as a good team.
The match will be broadcast LIVE on YouTube and SportMedia.tv.
