The VTB United League is perceived by many teams as a game practice right up to the playoff stage. The giants are well aware that they will almost ironically find themselves in decisive battles for the title, since they perform very powerfully, some victories are taken even by the second squad. But Zenit has recently begun to stumble too often - twice in the last three meetings. This simply could not but affect the emotional state and tournament position. The team lost the lead and fell immediately to the fourth position in the table.

Zenit vs CSKA
This was immediately taken advantage of by CSKA, which froze a little at the start of the competition. He is traditionally gaining momentum progressively, trying not to force things too much. This is what allows us to approach the playoffs almost at the peak, to give out our best basketball. On January 17, the rivals will meet each other in a principled confrontation on the floor of the Sibur Arena in St. Petersburg.
The Euroleague is going through the most difficult times, as almost all matches are postponed due to the coronavirus. Some clubs cannot even collect a full application to take part in the meeting. But the only match of the 19th round of the regular competition promises to be very interesting. Olympia Milano began to lose often, which negatively affects the emotional state of basketball players. At the start of the tournament, she churned out victories and looked just great. But over time, it became clear that resources for the entire season may simply not be enough, you need to learn how to correctly distribute your forces over the entire distance.

Olympia Milano vs Zenit
Zenith issued a series of four victories in a row and is definitely not going to stop there. The leaders have rebooted and are again swaggering over their rivals, acting very powerfully. Therefore, even on the road, the club from St. Petersburg may well surprise. On January 7, the opponents will converge on the floor of the Mediolanum arena in Milan.
The 18th round of Euroleague basketball is held on New Year's Eve, so it will present a lot of interesting battles. Crvena Zvezda is not doing the best in the current competition. It affects the fact that the team pays great attention to the Adriatic League. Leaders cannot withstand such a load, they start to fizzle out. But Zenit from St. Petersburg is the best representative of Russia in the international arena. The team won three matches in a row and are in a great emotional state. He has a good chance of gaining a home court advantage in the regular draw. On December 30, the rivals will face off at the Stark Arena in Belgrade. 

Crvena Zvezda vs Zenit
VTB United League is not going to pause during the Christmas and New Year holidays, it will delight basketball fans with top fights. The central match of the final part of the season will be the battle of the representatives of the leading group. Zenith has recently noticeably slowed down and began to stumble, it does not look as convincing as the fans and the basketball players themselves would like. The team dropped to fourth place in the standings. And the last defeat once again emphasized that unhealthy processes are taking place inside the squad.

Zenit vs UNICS
After the controversial start of the season, UNICS reached a completely different level of play, literally began to destroy rivals. He caught up with the leader in the number of victories and looks powerful. Key basketball players have caught the courage and, at the same time, represent Russia in the Euroleague with dignity.

On December 26, the rivals will meet each other on the floor of the Sibur Arena in St. Petersburg.
The Euroleague has come close to the second round, and still pleases with intrigue and a large number of top-end confrontations. Monaco is in a bad mood, having lost five matches in a row. This pushed the French club back to the 14th position in the standings, so the chances of getting into the playoffs are rapidly fading before our eyes. The team urgently needs to correct the situation before it becomes completely deplorable.

Monaco vs Zenit
Zenit also gave an unsuccessful streak of three defeats and looks frankly not the best way. A battle on two fronts literally squeezes out the leaders of the team, takes away the last of their strength. On December 17, the rivals will face each other.
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.
Zenit vs Fenerbahce

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.
The Euroleague is rapidly approaching its equator, and the teams are gaining momentum and progress.

Pascual finally conveyed his idea to the charges, they interact great on the court.

In addition, the club expects to climb higher in order to have good chances for the Final Four.

From the very first rounds the Euroleague set the highest bar and surprises all basketball fans with furious fights.
