To have more insights about Zenit Petersburg vs Fenerbahce, please read our preview below.
Zenit have managed to build a very good team with very good coach and such players like Ponitka, Rivers, Gudaitis have improved the team well. Pascual likes to build team on offense but also pressing opponents on defense, making them to work for every pass. As they did against Zalgiris when the Russians ran on offense, but also pressed Zalgiris players on every attack and did not allow them to collect fast break points. This strategy is starting to pay off, because Zenit have won 3 games in a row and currently are in 5th place with 2 games to spare. So it is safe to say, that team is improving and starting to look like real contenders of this season.
Fenerbahce so far are in 13th position with only 4 wins and so far are on 4 games losing streak. This is a poor result, and their coach is on a hot seat, because a few more losses, and he will be fired. However, the timing is not good, because their opponent is once again a tough one. And it hard to imagine how Fenerbahce could win without their leader De Colo and in an away game. Nevertheless, in this year’s Euroleague there are so many surprises, that anyone can win. This should be a game with a lot of points and whoever will score more from three-point range should win. Also, Fenerbahce will have troubles by trying to break Zenit’s defense, so this should be an interesting game.
