To have more insights on this Euroleague Zenit Petersburg vs Zalgiris Kaunas match, please check out the preview below.
Zenit Petersburg (7-20) is currently sitting in the last place of the league. They’ve lost 6 matches in a row, including ones against Alba Berlin, Bayern and Fenerbahce Ulker played at home. Important thing is that one of the leaders M. Ponitka has recovered from injuries and have already played against CSKA. It was actually a good game for Zenit against one of the top teams in this league yesterday, as they’ve only lost by 8 points playing against CSKA on the road. Even though this team is currently the last in the league, they can still be dangerous and surprise as they’ve already proven this season. None of the teams can be underestimated and so is the Zenit.
Zalgiris Kaunas (12-15) is without a doubt one of the best performing teams in the whole league since the end of 2019. Zalgiris started winning left and right as they’re currently on the 4 victory streak and have won 6 out of last 7 matches overall. Of course, most of these victories were at home arena, but it’s clear that Zalgiris can play very well on the road as well. They’re actually ranked 7th playing on the road and most of their matches even against the top teams of the leagues on the road were some close ones. Watching Zalgiris play these days is very satisfying, as the team have found the way to score in bunches while playing solid defence as well. They’re clear favourites heading into tomorrow’s match, but as Euroleague have proved already, none of the opponents can be underestimated.
