Fenerbahce still too early to slow down
The Turkish club should probably get to the Euroleague play-offs, the team is fifth in the regular season, the loss to the ninth round means two victories. With five games left before the end of the regular season, a place in the play-offs is not yet guaranteed. Fenerbahce suffered a marked decline in results, suffering three defeats in four Euroleague matches. In the last meeting, the club lost on the floor to Olimpia Milano with the score 75:82. Injuries will prevent three players from entering the court.
Żalgiris is very motivated
For Zalgiris this season is going well, the team is in ninth place in the Euroleague, behind Baskonia in eighth only by additional indicators. The result determines whether the team will advance to the playoffs. In the last meeting, the Lithuanian club managed to make up for the losses at home to Olympiacos, losing 14 points during the meeting, but in the end they still lost 72:74. Żalgiris has two personnel losses before this confrontation.
The hosts have a clear advantage in this confrontation, although not everything is so obvious, because Żalgiris will come for the victory, and Fenerbahce does not show the most stable results. Teams are expected to play productive basketball, we don’t agree with that, so we’re taking a total bet of less than 161.5 points.
