In one of the Euroleague basketball matches, Zenit and Anadolu Efes players will clash face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this meeting.
The St. Petersburg team, despite a major defeat by Monaco (77:86), is the best Russian team in the Euroleague regular season. The St. Petersburg team is on the fifth line, having 12 victories to its credit. Under the "blue-white-blue" are Kazan UNICS and CSKA Moscow with a similar number of victories. In a recent duel with the Monegasques, Pascual's team lost in all game segments. The French increased the pace during the meeting and broke away, providing a comfortable advantage of 9 points during the meeting.
In the standings, Anadolu is located under the Russian monolithic trio and is in the TOP 8, closing this zone. The current Euroleague champion has an equal and round number of wins and losses - ten each. The Brewers were close to losing last week. They played with Panathinaikos in Istanbul. Two seconds before the final siren, Efes was losing with a score of 79:81, but Adrien Moerman's "three-piece" turned the fight around.
Statistics and figures:
- Anadolu is the favorite of the meeting;
- The St. Petersburg team won three times in 5 matches;
- Anadolu has 3 wins in 5 matches;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 90:79 in favor of Zenit.
It is worth noting that recently the residents of St. Petersburg have been playing very confidently against their opponent. In the three previous meetings, the St. Petersburg team invariably defeated one of the best Euroleague clubs. I believe that the victory awaits the Russian team this time too.
