Zadar - Split
Tonight, the fifth round of the Croatian basketball league is scheduled. Zadar and Split will compete. My bet is the victory of Zadar, including possible overtime.
Split is not entering this season with high expectations. Last season they were led by the excellent veteran Roko Leni Ukic, but this season he is not there and I do not see who could pull for Split this season. Their budget is very low, they are in financial trouble, and bankruptcy was an option, which could happen if the city of Split does not decide to give them money from the city budget. On the other hand, Zadar is a stable team, and in my opinion at this time far better than Split. They have a nice team, several very good young players, and the goal in the domestic championship is the highest, and that is winning. As hosts they were very convincing against Split in the past, and in 19 matches as hosts they won 17 of them. They won the last 5 matches as hosts with a 15+ difference, and I expect a similar outcome tonight. Good luck
