ULM Vs CM Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Merlins in dire need of a first win in Group A of the league.
When Crailsheim Merlins had cantered their way into the ongoing stage of the Germany BBL 2019-20, the side found themselves having earned the nomenclature of firm contenders for the title. It was a title befittingly serenaded upon them, one which the side had achieved after galloping its way into third spot in the points tally.
Winning all of their last five games prior to the league being curbed owing to Coronavirus, Merlins were widely expected to dole out the spitting same touch once the league returned. However, things have unfortunately been anything but with the pressure being too much to cope with for the side which finds itself currently languishing in bottom spot.
Losing both of their opening rounds in Group A, time is fast running out for Merlins. Where things have completely turned around for them for the bad, for Ratiopharm Ulm, things have overturned for the better. From crumbling in the points tally to sit in 10th place, the team is currently in second spot in Group A after having thumped Oldenburg 85-66 in their first group stage fixture.
Had this game being contested three months back, we would have had no qualms in determining Merlins as winners. However, three months is a long time in the world of sports, one which has had a telling affect on both these side’s form.
And it’s this overhaul by Ulm which will see them pull off a win from this one.
