Fenerbahce Ulker vs Barcelona - 16/01/2020 Preview

19th round of the Euroleague and two of the strongest teams Fenerbahce Ulker vs Barcelona will face off against each other. Currently, 12th placed Fenerbahce Ulker hasn’t been performing well throughout the first round of the competition, but there is no doubt it’s still one of the stronger teams of the tournament. To have more insights on this Euroleague Fenerbahce Ulker vs Barcelona match, please check out the preview below.

Fenerbahce Ulker

Ulker added a former player J. Nunnally to their roster last week and managed to win 2 previous matches against Olympiacos and Baskonia. Even though Ulker is currently out of the playoffs, they’re only 2 victories down to an 8th placed Crvena Zvezda, so 2nd round of the competition will be a very important one in case of making the playoffs. Nando De Colo was playing exceptionally well and he’s also the most consistent player of the team. Adding L. Westermann, who’s been in form recently, this team is a dangerous opponent even for a tournament favorite like Barcelona.

Barcelona

Arguably the best roster of the tournament has been struggling recently as Barcelona is coming to this match after facing a 2 loss streak. They’ve lost against Baskonia by 2 points in away match. Also hasn’t found the answer for Anadolu Efes in the last tour, losing at home by 4 points. It would be very surprising to see Barcelona losing 3rd match in a row, so they should come up strong in this match in order to set up the right tempo for the victory. The only question mark is on Kevin Pangos, who hasn’t played in the last few matches due to injury, but all of the other players will be able to play.
