Fenerbahce vs. Olympiacos / Euro League – In the replay of last year's finals, Turkish Fenerbahce in the 7th round of Euro League is welcoming the Greek Olympiacos, which, including the aforementioned finals, won the last three of four mutual duels. Both teams have a score of 4-2 and they are in the third to sixth place. Begins: 15.11.2017. – 18:45 CET
Fener still has no defeats in their field this season, and in the last two rounds, they easily defeated Valencia at home (79:66) and Bamberg as guests (80:57). These were the matches that they should have won objectively, and Vesely was the most efficient against Bamberg with 15 points, even though they had five players with double digit. He is, however, one of the culprits why they last weekend lost a match in the 6th round of the Turkish Cup last weekend by Darussafaka (78:84). It was their second defeat in BSL, which is why they dropped to fourth place.
For the first time this season, Dixon was in the team, who recovered and played for four minutes but did not score any points. Arna has also recovered, so in order to complete the team, coach Obradovic still awaits for Kalinic, who in the finals against Olympiacos (80:64) played his best career match. Vesely with 12.8 points and 4.5 rebounds and Sloukas with 11.3 points and 6.5 assists have the same index of 16.2, and they are the best this season, followed by 15.5 Wanamaker (12.2 points and 4.3 assists). Datome is the most efficient with 13.7 points.
Probable lineups Fenerbahce: Wanamaker, Sloukas, Datome, Melli, Vesely
Olympiacos was undefeated until two rounds ago, and then they were mastered by Barcelona as guests (51:73). If it was not just a bad day, because they also lost in the last round to their city rival Panathinaikos (62:70), which, after defeat in the 1st round of the Greek league, was the second defeat by their biggest rival. Strelnieks scored 18 points, and Papapetro added 11 and McLean 10 points.
Printezis is 11.7 points the most efficient and the only one with two digit effect in Euro League, but statistically Milutinov is the best with nine points and five rebounds (index 14.5). Without the injured Spanoulis and Tillie, Printezis is much weaker. In the final round of the Greek league, in which they defeated Rethymno with 90:72, Roberts was the most efficient with 18, and Thompson scored 16 points. The Canadian Wiltjer had his debut, but he has not done anything in five minutes on the court. He should also play in Euro League debut against Fener.
Probable lineups Olympiacos: Roberts, Strelnieks, Papanikolau, Printezis, Milutinov
Fenerbahce vs. Olympiacos PICK
The guests are not in a good rhythm and a new defeat could have cause the upheavals in the ranks of Olympiacos. Fener has the best defence (receives 69.5 points), but they do not score a lot of points – 77.8. However, this is far more than Olympiacos, which scores 71.5 points, but the Greeks with 70.8 points received have the second best defence. Fener is more successful in assists (19.2-13.5), and the guests in rebounds (32.3-36). We suggest a handicap on Fener.
