Anadolu Efes started this season with an unexpected loss against Zenit. The Russians played well on both sides, but to be fair, Anadolu were playing without their leader Larkin. Nevertheless, they were still the favorites to win this match, and being without a leader does not change the fact, that Anadolu played a poor game and have to resurface. However, this time the opponent is well known and this should be a tougher game for Efes. Fenerbahce have played a good game in their previous match and have proven that they are ready to come back to the elite of Europe. A huge advantage for Anadolu is that their squad have not changed much during the summer, therefore all players know each other well.
In their first game Fenerbahce managed to quite easily overcome Crvena Zvezda. Although they lost Sloukas, the Turks are ready to prove that they belong in the elite of Europe. Obradovic is probably one of the best coaches in the world, who knows how to prepare his team. Fenerbahce will be the underdogs in this match, but nevertheless, it should be a close game, because, during summer, both teams had very little of practice and they still lack quality. Their previous win should give extra confidence, but also it is a small disadvantage that Anadolu lost their first game, because now they will be more motivated, more dangerous.
