To have more insights on this Euroleague Zalgiris Kaunas vs Alba Berlin match, please check out the preview below.
16th placed Zalgiris is underperforming this season and struggle to fulfill the expectations. Either way, the system that coach Jasikevičius often talks about seems to be working, but players just couldn’t hit their shots from comfortable spots. This team is one of the youngest of this Euroleague competition and it might be one of the reasons why Zalgiris struggled a lot with shooting percentages this year. Despite that, with a victory in away match against Bayern, Zalgiris finally showed their true selves. They’ve followed it up with a victory over one of the strongest teams of the Euroleague this year. Maccabi Tel Aviv (73-68). They’ve also had a strong performance last week after taking down Crvena Zvezda (76-70) and losing to Panathinaikos (94-96) only by 2 points in away match. Zalgiris is a clear favorite to win tomorrow’s match as well.
14th placed Alba is one victory ahead of Zalgiris and it’s mostly due to their great performance last week. Alba defeated both Olympiacos and Crvena Zvezda playing away last week while being considered as a clear underdog for both matches. This is a team that fights for every ball and every possession. Alba can’t be underestimated as they’re showing great results while being placed as an underdog team by the bookmakers. It’s also worth to mention, that Alba doesn’t rely on any single player as they’re playing as a team and every player can step up on any given day. It will be interesting to see how Alba will respond while playing against one of the biggest crowds in Europe on Friday.
