The Take

Valencia is undefeated in Group C after respective wins against ASVEL and Turk Telekom. Despite its many injuries, Valencia has been strong behind Will Thomas (16 ppg.) and Sam Van Rossom (8.5 apg.), who ranks second in the competition in assists so far. Partizan downed Zenit 89-82 last week to snap an eight-game losing streak. Vanja Marinkovic (15.5 ppg.) and Rade Zagorac (12.5 ppg., 21 PIR) have been Partizan's pillars so far.

Marquee matchup:

Zagorac comes off a great all-around game against Zenit (16 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists, 5 steals) and hopes to keep leading Partizan. With Fernando San Emeterio sidelined and Joan Sastre battling back problems, it is time for Alberto Abalde to showcase his defensive skills and versatility.

Keys to victory: Valencia

Valencia rallied from double-digit deficits in both games to take the win, so a stronger start is something to work on. Van Rossom and Guillem Vives must set the right game tempo and find advantages in the paint by getting Will Thomas and Bojan Dubljevic involved.

Keys to victory: Partizan

Partizan had six scorers in double digits in its win against Zenit and that diversified offense is something to keep working on throughout the season. Partizan dished 23 assists and committed just 8 turnovers; it will need similar numbers to win on one of the toughest courts in the EuroCup.

Interesting fact:

Incredibly enough, Partizan and Valencia are set to face each other for the first time in European competitions.

Valencia has won its last eight EuroCup regular season games - and 19 of the last 20. Partizan is 5-17 in EuroCup regular season action.
