ALBA Berlin has won six of the last seven meetings against Rasta Vechta, which includes winning the most recent meeting in October of last year.
Rasta Vechta is in a major slump right now and is coming off a game where it scored just 59 points total and 25 points in the second half. ALBA Berlin is one of the few teams in the league that's playing well out of the gate and that offense is getting scarier and scarier, which includes lighting up Bamberg for 98 points in its last outing. ALBA Berlin is a nightmare matchup when its shooting a high percentage from the field. We also have the one-sided history between these two teams, and that also doesn't favor Rasta Vechta.
I'll take ALBA Berlin in a comfortable victory based on the current form and the history between these clubs.
