Argentina - Nacional A - Zona Norte - 16th October 2016 @ 00:00
The game will be played at Orfeo Superdomo, meaning no home advantage for Atenas. Both teams are from Cordoba and they play their home games in smaller gyms...
Atenas started with four defeats, coach Adrián Capelli left and with interim coach Gustavo Rosotto they managed to beat Estudiantes de Concordia 73-65 at home. New coach Gustavo Miravet (who returns to Atenas) will make his debut in this game. He already decided to sack center Juan Manuel Torres and Atenas will have seven senior players in their roster tonight as they are yet to sign his replacement (it will be Lisandro Rasio who is in Uruguay).
Instituto played their worst game of the season on Monday and lost 68-84 at home to Estudiantes de Concordia, after previously beating them by 13 away from home. Their record is 3-2 and they managed to beat title contenders Olimpico and Quimsa pretty comfortably. Their second loss came against underdogs Echagüe. So, current pattern suggest they play better in more difficult games. Since this is local derby, I expect them to give their best again.
Considering the game is being played at neutral venue and Instituto's better roster, these odds have to be taken...
