CM Vs BO Dream11 Prediction: Crailsheim Merlins Vs Basketball Oldenburg. Merlins fast losing relevance with three defeats on the spin.
The only side in Group A to yet register a win, for Crailsheim Merlins, the prevelant edition of the Germany BBL is turning out to be a horrid outing. The side has completely lost its way since returning onto the court with the extended period off the game being too much for the side to cope with.
Unable to acclimatise themselves with the return of the league, Merlins have served as only fillers in the group. The side is currently on a three game losing spin, one which took birth after being defeated 90-82 by Ulm the last time around to leave the side languishing in place.
Barking up the wrong tree, the team has been unable to dress the elephant on the room across the last week. The side has only itself to beat for its crumbling showing with the shambolic lack of a fight telling in the side’s displays, ones which allude towards the side being fast ousted for the race of a spot in the ensuing round.
Where Merlins have been left yearning for a win all season long, Oldenburg on the other hand make an advent into the fixture having raked up their first win of the season after downing Gottingen 80-62. That stern defensive performance makes the side a formidable opposition on the day, a trait which will see them put part Merlins with ease.
