Khimki Moscow vs Real Madrid Prediction
Khimki Moscow hosts Real Madrid to the Round of 26 game at RENA MYTISHCHI on Thursday. Khimki are now in a three-game losing streak and are almost outside of the last playoff berths. The club are placed 13th in the League standings with a record of 9-16, while Real Madrid sits third in the league table with a record of 19-6.
Khimki Moscow enters to this came with a 101-86 defeat to Baskonia in Round 25 of the competition. Khimki made a confident start in the game with a 40-41 half-time advantage special thanks to Charles Jenkins, Shved and Egor Vialtsev, followed by poor performance in the next quarter as the Baskonians opened a huge 78-55 advantage in the final minute of the third quarter and then back-to-back-to-back triples from Voigtmann, Janning and Shields made it 101-86, closing the deal.
Real Madrid heads to this contest after securing a comfortable 101-86 EuroLeague win over first-placed Fenerbahce Beko special thanks to Anthony Randolph who contributed 21 points, two rebounds and two assists. Real Madrid have already defeated Khimki Moscow this season, and we expect the same trend will continue here.
