KRA Vs LIE Fantasy Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Krasnodar scramble to revert to winning ways as the club grows adrift of top spot.
Suffering their first defeat in five games the last time around, Krasnodar know they can’t afford any further slipups if they are to remain in contention for top spot in Group C. With Bologna refusing to give any leeway at the top of the table, Krasnodar are aware that every clash is a must win one for them from this point onwards.
Up against the table toppers themselves the last time they took to the court, Krasnodar managed to get past the finishing line. Despite giving everything they had into the contest, the club failed to stave away Bologna’s attacking might to fall short 89-83 on the day.
While the result put them back in the scuffle for top spot, Krasnodar won’t be massively dejected with the result. The Russian based side has been a stalwart in the group, a team which has taken on the identity of a ruthless juggernaut.

Recording a double-double comprising of 12 points and 11 assists the last time he stepped onto the court, Mantas Kalnietis makes for a must have pick for us from Krasnodar. The visiting team will also find representation in this unit of our side with us roping in Margiris Normantas who registered 12 points in his last appearance.
He will find company in the electric Kyle Vinales who top scored for his side in that tie as he burst onto the stage with a gargantuan 23 points.
For Lietkabelis, any chance of pulling off an unprecedented win today will rely on Vytenis Lipkevicius. The player is a defensive powerhouse, a name endowed not only with the ability to win the battle of the boards but pull off steals as well.
Troy Barnies joins him owing to his ability to shoot from the midrange region.
Krasnodar’s Kevin Hervery is going to love his time out in the middle today. Up against a regressing defence, he can easily end up filling his shoes and adding to the 21 point performance which won his side the clash the last time around.
Stanislav Ilnitskiy can run the court and drop his jump points to see him form the one-two of picks from the club.
Alan Williams ended up pulling off his second double-double on the bounce the last time he took to the middle to once again stamp his authority on the court.
The 15-16 he dropped sees Williams emerge as our star player while Hervey is the pro player.
Kalnietis, Normantas, Vinales, Lipkevicius, Barnies, Hervey, Stanislav, Williams
