Continuation of the weekend in Euroleague with surprises usually included in the menu.
Maccabi is in the top spot in the record with 1-7 and tries to find her footsteps to improve her position, which may be fictitious, because from the eight so far games only the two were at her home and they with opponents Cska and Real. I'm not saying that today's opponent Fenerbache is inferior to the previous two but in the league it is more profitable to beat (beat 1 Olympic point, 2 points Baskonia and 7 points Zalgiris and lost to Efes) and less spectacular. Maccabi tries to play fast basketball with its peripherals (Wilbekin who seems to find his footsteps after his injury, Deandre, Roll) to take the lion's share in the attack. He has a great appeal to the aggressive rebounds (thanks to the athletes who are in possession of him) and can renew his attacks (in the last game he got 16).
Add the coach change (Spheropoulos) that usually gives extra motivation to the players.
On the other hand, the Fenerk experienced team that often relies on midfield shots thanks to effective attack centers (Lauvergne, Vesely) and forward (Melli, Datome), but defensively make some "waters" (missed 12 defensive rebounds in the last of Darussafaca). If they do not control the defensive rebound in my view the game will become a derby.
I will bet on the aggressive rebound and the new air that the coach change can bring to the group of the people. Maccabi (+ 7.5)
