Please read our preview about great Euroleague Zalgiris Kaunas vs Zenit Petersburg match, here below.
Zalgiris started Euroleague with two losses in a row, but then followed wins against Real and Asvel. In the local cup, they remain the only undefeated team. So it seems that Zalgiris finally is starting to perform as they did at the end of the last season. Jasikevicius found a way to properly use LeDay and Landale, who can easily be team leaders. And if they will keep performing in the same way as they did in the previous two matches, there should be no problem to defeat struggling Zenit. Another advantage is that Zalgiris is playing in front of their own fans, which gives a great boost to the whole team.
Zenit came here as a wild card, but results are not showing them to be worthy play in Euroleague. Only 1 win in 4 matches, first two games lost more than by 20 points. Russian’s only win was against struggling Olympiacos. Zenit has spent a lot of money, however, so far it does not look to be repaid. And now they face a very strong opponent in their own arena, so if they won’t start improving their game, the result will remain disappointing.
