The "Taronja European Classic" against Khimki Moscow Region reaches 17 editions


Valencia Basket began yesterday to prepare the first of the five rounds remaining in the Regular Season of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, which will take him to travel to the court that has visited the most in continental competitions, the Khimki Moscow Region’s one, on Friday, March 19 at 6:00 p.m. The eighth visit to the court of the yellow team increases the number of clashes between these two teams to 17, which extends the history of the European Classic Taronja against its most frequent rival in continental competitions. After six defeats in a row in Khimki, last season Jaume Ponsarnau's men managed to win on the court of the yellow team for the first time. A triumph that they will try to repeat to improve their balance as a visitor in the Euroleague and to continue adding victories to keep their options to qualify for the Playoffs. In front, an opponent who has lost many pieces along the way in a bad season in terms of results but who has improved his feelings by betting on a block of Russian players and with the step in front of his only two foreign players who enter the 12-men roster: Errick McCollum and Jordan Mickey.
