Fenerbahce Team News

Fenerbahce changed a lot in their roster between two seasons. Although he won the title in domestic league, Aleksandar Djordjevic was not retained as head coach. He was succeeded by Dimitris Itoudis, the man who won the Euroleague twice with CSKA.

Board management hopes that the Greek expert will bring that winning mentality to Istanbul. Ever since the departure of Zeljko Obradovic, Fenerbahce has been far from the best European clubs. A lot of players have also changed. In fact, a completely new team was created. Backcourt now includes Nick Calathes, Scottie Wilbekin and Carsen Edwards, while in frontcourt they have Johnathan Motley, Tonye Jekiri and Nemanja Bjelica. Only Dyshawn Pierre, Devin Booker, Marko Guduric and Melih Mahmutoglu remain from last season’s team.

In the Euroleague first round, Fenerbahce defeated Bayern in Munich. They showed all the potential and quality they have and now they want to present it to the home fans in Istanbul. Their defense in Germany looked perfect, allowing only 62 points to the opponent.

Maccabi Tel Aviv Team News

If Fenerbahce changed the entire team between two seasons, what can we say about Maccabi? What they did in the first eight days of the off-season was not seen in European basketball. Legendary club from Tel Aviv brought in ten players and hired a new head coach in only eight days.

Players who have signed for Maccabi are Lorenzo Brown, Wade Baldwin, Darrun Hilliard, Austin Hollins, Bonzie Colson, Alex Poythress, Jarell Martin, Josh Nebo, Guy Pnini and Rafi Menco. Israeli expert Oded Kattash was chosen as new head coach. Fitting so many new players into one unit in a short time is an impossible mission. This was seen in the Euroleague first round. Maccabi almost lost at home against Zalgiris, who is probably the weakest team in this competition.

To threaten Fenerbahce in Istanbul, they will have to play incomparably better than they did last week. There is a big imbalance between Maccabi’s backcourt and frontcourt. An experienced coach like Itoudis will know how to stop Brown and Baldwin.

H2H

In the last ten games between them, Fenerbahce leads 6-4. Last season they played twice and the home team won both times.

Injuries

Darrun Hilliard is injured and won’t play for Maccabi, while Austin Hollins is questionable. At Fenerbahce, everyone is healthy and ready except Nemanja Bjelica.

Fenerbahce vs. Maccabi Tel Aviv Prediction

Based on what we saw last week, Fenerbahce showed incomparably more than Maccabi. The Turkish club looks like a candidate for the highest positions in the Euroleague, while Maccabi will have a hard time making it to the playoffs. That is why we think that the home team will achieve a fairly easy win here. Probably by double digits.
