Real Madrid - Khimki

Zenit-Real Madrid: all eyes on a sixth consecutive Euroleague win

See video

NEWS | 29/11/2019

The Whites take on the Russian team for the first time in this competition (6:00pm CET).
Real Madrid are all set for their third consecutive Euroleague clash against Russian opposition. After beating Khimki and CSKA last week at the WiZink Center, the Whites head to Zenit St. Petersburg this evening on match day 11. Laso's men boast the competition's best record in November, at 5-0; their opposition's score reads the same, but against. It's an unprecedented Euroleague tie for the Whites, who travelled to Russia without Llull, Reyes or Mejri.

On the 1st of November, Real Madrid sat 13th in the table ahead of hosting Alba Berlin. Today, 28 days on, they're third and just one win behind the two teams at the top following five successive wins (Alba BerlinCrvena zvezda, Barça, Khimki and CSKA). Nobody has more wins this month and if they win in St. Petersburg they'll equal the best run of any team in the Euroleague this term, currently held by Olimpia Milan and Maccabi, at 6. The madridistas' form is in stark contrast to Zenit's. Joan Plaza's men were ahead of the Whites at the start of the month but have fallen to the foot of the table since (2-8).

Real Madrid are the Euroleague's best team in November with 5 wins.

With a squad boasting 6 players with an ACB past, Zenit's strengths are their offensive rebound and swift movement of the ball up top. Hollins, Ponitka and, particularly former madridista Ayón, are the key men. The Mexican centre tops his team for points, rebounds, steals, two-point shots and PIR in 22 minutes of play. Real Madrid know him well. The defense will be crucial in stopping the hosts, who haven't found it easy to score (74.7 points on average). The Whites have had no such trouble (83.3). Randolph, Campazzo and Deck are all enjoying fine spells of form and in the last three games have managed an average of 43.9 points and 60.5 PIR between them. 

A friendly clash in summer
There is no history between these two teams in Europe's top competition as this is the first time the Russians are involved. They did however cross paths in pre-season, in what was the Whites' first friendly in September at the Torneo de la Costa del Sol. Real Madrid came out on top, 80-77. This will be the 48th team the Whites have faced in Euroleague history and they'll be hoping to mark the occasion with another win.
