In the match of the 13th round of the Euroleague regular season, Barcelona will host Turkish Fenerbahce at home.
Roger Grimau's team did not play in the best way yesterday and eventually broke a streak of three consecutive wins in the Euroleague. Barcelona had a good first half of the match in Italy against Bologna, but then the Catalan club could no longer play from the advantage and eventually suffered a defeat with the score 75:80 (24:18; 21:15; 16:23; 14:24). In this match, the Spanish forward Willy Hernangomez showed himself quite well in Barcelona, he scored 15 points and made five rebounds.
Dimitris Itoudis' team also continues to show a rather unsuccessful basketball. Fenerbahce have already lost five of their last six matches in the Euroleague. Yesterday Fenerbahce imposed a very good fight on Baskonia in Spain and could well have won the coveted victory, but still the Turkish club lost with the score 79:80 (18:10; 19:28; 18:19; 24:23). In this meeting, American forward Nigel Hayes showed himself well in Fenerbahce, he scored 19 points, made four rebounds and completed six assists.
Fenerbahce and Barcelona last played on March tenth as part of the 28th round of the Euroleague regular season. Then Fenerbahce were stronger on the home court in Istanbul with the score 81:73 (18:30; 19:10; 24:16; 20:17).
In this match, Barcelona is, of course, considered by the bookmakers to be an extremely clear favorite. The Catalan club should improve over the last match, but of course Fenerbahce should not be underestimated.
