Fenerbahce vs Maccabi Tel Aviv Odds
In the last round, Fenerbahce suffered its first defeat of the season at home against one of the worst visiting teams in the league, Crvena zvezda. It was also Fener’s first defeat since they were coached by Lithuanian expert Sarunas Jasikevicius. The Euroleague made a very difficult decision, which surely caused a revolt among the fans and management of Fenerbahçe, and due to the strained relations and the situation in Israel, this match will be played in Lithuania, which certainly suits the Maccabi players better, because, in Istanbul, Fener lost only once this season.
Fenerbahce is at 10-8 and they have only one win less than Maccabi which is in fourth place, so with a win, they would tie with the team from Tel Aviv. Also, an important factor is the mutual basket ratio due to the advantage if the teams have the same score at the end. In the first match, Maccabi was more successful with a four-point difference. They have a very talented team that often knows how to get into a counter rhythm. Against Crvena zvezda, they had absolute control until the middle of the third quarter, and then they got nervous and counter-rhythmed, which the team from Belgrade took advantage of. They lost the match and during the entire match, they had over 50% three-point shooting success rate. Against Maccabi, they must be maximally focused, otherwise the “Pride of Israel” will severely punish them.
Maccabi Tel Aviv Team News
Maccabi plays quite variable this season and their results are solely dependent on their attacking performance. They depend a lot on the duo of Brown and Baldwin, who are the driving force of the team and score 15 points each on average. Recently, Maccabi has been regularly scoring over 90 points and playing fast basketball. They depend a lot on Lorenzo Brown, who when he is in rhythm is totally unstoppable for opposing defenses, but there are also games when he cannot “buy” the basket. Although they have a huge defensive potential, they don’t pay much attention to defense at all. Important information for Maccabi that Baldwin, who had problems with the hamstring, returned to the team.
Against Monaco, they played a match in their own style, efficiently and with a large number of points. Although they had an advantage of almost 20 points, Monaco on the wings of Mike James came back and was close to turning the match, but Maccabi reached a big victory thanks to Bonzi Colson. Colson scored 27 points and made only two field goals. They have an ideal opportunity to make a break against Fenerbahce because they play most of their matches without the presence of an audience and will acclimatize much faster to the conditions of the match in Lithuania.
