Zenit vs Fenerbahce. Will the Russian club be able to cope with the game problems?

This Euroleague season is turning out to be one of the most exciting in recent years. The main reason is that each team can win even against a recognized leader. Zenit started the rally excellently and settled at the top of the tournament table. He even had a real chance of competing for first place, but suddenly failed two matches in a row. This seriously reduced the likelihood of becoming the winner of the regular championship.

Fenerbahce is frankly failing the current season of competitions, therefore, it is natural to settle in the basement of the standings. And even the last victory is unlikely to help correct the deplorable situation. On the road, the team's affairs are bad - only one victory in seven meetings.

On December 9, the rivals will meet each other on the floor of the Sibur Arena in St. Petersburg.

Zenit was frankly over praised, because after a series of victories they wrote him a huge number of compliments. And before the last matches with outsiders, the basketball players themselves believed that they could automatically write down a victory for themselves even before the start of the meeting. At first, the team lost to Panathinaikos in a completely sensational way (64:70). She did not act in the best way on the road, as if she was trying to achieve results in economy mode. But at home, the situation hasn't changed much. The team lost to Crvena Zvezda even more (58:69). Curiously, both opponents are in the basement of the standings, and both have had impressive streaks without wins. The problems of the club from St. Petersburg seem obvious.


From the very start of the season, Fenerbahce began to storm, the team settled in the basement and fought with outsiders. The chances of getting into the playoffs are rapidly diminishing, the problems are only accumulating. Therefore, it will be incredibly difficult for the team to correct the situation. Moreover, the club had just interrupted an unpleasant streak of defeats. We managed to outplay Monaco (96:86) and please the fans at home.

The main problem is that the coach cannot in any way make adjustments to the game, which is not developing in the best way. After time-outs, the team more often than not continues to crumble, fail even more. The performers themselves do not show much desire to correct the situation.

History of the confrontation

He turned out to be stronger with a score of 92:84, completely dominating the entire meeting.

Game Totals Prediction

Zenit will try to do everything to interrupt their unpleasant streak of defeats. The basketball players were able to rest and take a breath. In addition, they played quite well in the VTB United League, which allowed them to believe in their own strength. Ambitious basketball players will try to justify themselves to their fans on the home court. Fenerbahce finally managed to win the fight, send him to his piggy bank. But you need to understand that it is too early to talk about stability and rectification of the situation. The train is in poor condition, this can be seen with the naked eye. We predict that Zenit will still take advantage of the home court's advantage and will definitely win the final victory. Install the 1xbet app and place a bet on the favorite!
