Galatasaray Odeabank - Lietkabelis Panevezys
Winless Galatasaray will host Lietkabelis in the 4th round of Eurocup. At first, I want to talk about the difficult situation that Galatasaray is in at the moment. Just 3 days ago, Gala lost against their biggest rival FB by 21 points in their home, which was played in an empty arena due to the punishment remaining from the last season. This result was very unacceptable for the fans, because while Ergin Ataman coaching the team, we beat FB again in an empty arena. We beat them with having only 6 players in the squad once. So the emptiness of the arena should not be the case. Fans don't like Erman Kunter, current head coach. This was because of more than bad results just came in the beginning of the season. This was about the team could not show any progress in the game yet. Erman Kunter could not manage to define roles for each player. Since the situation is so, players could not show their best at the moment. More importantly, Alex Renfroe could not run offense sets and Emir Preldzic, who has a big role in Erman Kunter's sets will miss this match. I really don't understand how can a head coach build his team on Emir Preldzic. The team don't have any 3pt shooting threat except Goksenin Koksal. Considering Goksenin as the biggest threat behind the arch describes basically the bad situation that Gala is in. Beating Gala could not be a difficul task for away teams. Just defending in zone will be enough to stop Gala. I don't expect a huge fan support today. If they come to arena, they will want Erman Kunter to resign. Behind those, Erman K. also realized the mistake that he made squad selection. He asked a guard transfer since Renfroe is in bad shape at the moment and the club almost reach agreement with Jordan Taylor, ex Hapoel guard. On the other hand, Lietkabelis has won only their first game in this group. They came here with two straight losses. They have some very experienced players in the squad like Lavrinovic brothers, Jasaitis and Peiners. I didn't watch them before but I know Gala very well. I expect a tough match here, Gala is not that favourite for me. Away team will be very agressive in the defense according to their head coach statement and IMO, Gala will struggle in the offense since team don't have a pure shooter. Gala will also pay big attention to stop Lietkabelis. I expect a low score in this match and my pick is UNDER 158 @1.79 .
