Please read our thoughts about this Euroleague Olympiakos vs Zenit Petersburg match here below.
Olympiakos started Euroleague with a surprising loss against Lyon. But in the previous match recovered against Valencia with a crushing win 89:63. Milutinov, Spanoulis and Kuzminskas scored 47 points combined. Milutinov also grabbed 14 rebounds. It was Olympiakos 1st win this season. Olympiakos must start to perform better because it would be a shame to miss top8 two years in a row. This year it should be easier for them because they don‘t play anymore in the local cup, so they can totally focus on Euroleague.
Zenit started the season with a big statement as they defeated CSKA in VTB Cup, but then followed 2 loses in a row and so far they remain winless in Euroleague. In the previous round, they lost against Barcelona. It was a good first three quarters for the Russians, but they lost the 4th 7:28. This shows that Zenit is not yet ready to play against elite teams. However it is the only the start of the season and knowing how ambitious they are, maybe they will improve soon, but it must be soon, otherwise, they won‘t have even theoretical chances.
