Partizan Team News

Partizan returned to the Euroleague after nine seasons. The best European coach of all time (Zeljko Obradovic) certainly wants to win the “decima” with his beloved club, but something like that will require few years of serious work.

Last season, Partizan failed in the Eurocup, but they received a wild card for the Euroleague. They kept all important players, plus their roster was further strengthened by signing Dante Exum, Danilo Andjusic, James Nunnally and Ioannis Papapetrou. In games against Baskonia and Milano, they weren’t lucky enough to win, but that’s why they took all their anger out on Virtus last Thursday. Partizan’s offense has been working very well since the beginning of the season, but their defense still needs to improve.

In front of 18,000 fans in Belgrade, Partizan will be the favorite against Zalgiris. In previous three games in the Euroleague, black and whites gained big advantage already in first quarter, and such engagement will be required now. However, caution will be necessary because they are playing against a team that defeated Barcelona just seven days ago.

Zalgiris Team News

It seemed that Zalgiris entered this season with an extremely weak roster, but on the court they showed something completely opposite. Last week, they beat Virtus and Barcelona in Kaunas and thus hinted that they will be a tough opponent for everyone. This was also seen in Tel Aviv in the opening round when they narrowly lose by Maccabi.

Head coach Kazys Maksvytis found a role for all his players. Keenan Evans got freedom in offense, while Lukas Lekavicius is there to replace him in a certain part of the game. Ignas Brazdeikis and Edgaras Ulanovas contribute on both sides of the floor, as does Rolands Smits. There is also Kevarrius Hayes who came to Zalgiris after a fantastic season in Bursaspor. This team is characterized by firmness in defense, good three-point shooting and no one should underestimate them.

The first quarter will be crucial for Zalgiris in Belgrade. If they don’t allow Partizan a double-digit advantage at the start, they will certainly be able to impose their rhythm and play an even game where they might have a chance to win.

H2H

Partizan and Zalgiris played against each other four times in total. H2H is 2-2 and home team won every time.

Injuries

Aleksa Avramovic and Alen Smailagic are injured and won’t play for Partizan. Dovydas Giedraitis is the only missing player at Zalgiris.

Partizan vs. Zalgiris Prediction

It is surprising to see that Partizan is such a favorite on paper. Zalgiris has been a member of the Euroleague for years, while black and whites still need to get used to this competition system. We expect a close clash in which the winner will be decided in fourth quarter.
