Please read our preview about this interesting Euroleague Zalgiris Kaunas vs Barcelona match here below.
Zalgiris made a comeback of the year surely in the previous round. They were losing by 7 points with 1 minute remaining but managed to win, so this only shows that the team is ready to fight till the end against every team. And this time they are facing also a tough opponent, however, Barcelona lost in the previous round, so it might help for Lithuanians. Nevertheless, one thing that Zalgiris is missing it is stability, they won against Fenerbahce, but two days earlier they lost against Zenit. So, Zalgiris must start playing every game as they did against Fenerbahce.
Before the last round, Barcelona was the only team that has not lost. However, they lost against Olimpia. Barca performed not well and did deserve to lose. However, after that loss, they recovered in the local cup and won against Fuenlabrada. So, now Spaniards must make conclusions because the opponent is very dangerous and if Barca will underestimate them, that might be a crucial mistake. Because in their own arena Zalgiris plays much better. Also, another disadvantage is that Victor Claver is out for the next game. So, Barca must remember how did they played first 5 games and start playing the same, because otherwise they might get burned the second time in the row.
