The following day for Fenerbahce.

On matchday 33, Fenerbahce will host ambitious Efes at home, who are vying for the 8th place or Play-in spot. This game holds immense importance for both teams as it will determine their final ranking in this year’s Euroleague. Fenerbahce boasts a formidable home court advantage, and with the arrival of Šarūnas Jasikevičius, they have found a dynamic rhythm. While their roster may not seem complete at first glance, particularly in the frontline which isn’t the strongest in the Euroleague, performances like yesterday’s showcase players like N. Hayes-Davis, affirming Fenerbahce’s position as one of this year’s favorites to clinch the Euroleague title.

Currently positioned 5th in the standings with a record of 20W-12L, they trail behind 4th placed Barcelona, 3rd placed Monaco, and 2nd placed Panathinaikos, each with just one win ahead. Behind them are Olympiacos in 6th place with 20W-12L and Maccabi in 7th with 19W-13L. To secure the 4th place and potentially ascend even higher, especially with a face-off against Olympiacos in the SEF on the final day, they must secure a victory against Efes.

Can Fenerbahce win the Euroleague?

With Šarūnas Jasikevičius at the helm, Fenerbahce has shown noticeable signs of improvement. In Berlin, they could make a serious claim to win this year’s Euroleague title. If they continue at the same pace, especially with players like N. Hayes-Davis becoming a nightmare for any defense and any opponent they face. N. Calathes’ experience and S. Wilbekin’s scoring prowess can provide Šarūnas Jasikevičius’ team with the right boost, potentially leading to Fenerbahce reaching this year’s final of the competition. However, there is still a way to go, with possible play-in shuffles, and it will depend on the opponents they face and whether they eventually gain home advantage by finishing in the top four.
