The team of Sarunas Jasikevicius has been very uncomfortable throughout the series, where the defensive toughness of the Zenit by Xavi Pascual has set the pace of the game. In other words, so far the team from the city of the tsars has been played, with short scores and low scoring, which has led to the fifth game of the series being played.

Equality in Euroleague it is total. Of the four quarterfinal duels, three of them are settled in the fifth match; Barça against him Zenith, the Anadolu efes against him Real Madrid and Armani Milan against Bayern Munich. The only team that is already in the Final four Cologne is the CSKA Moscow, which has passed over the Fenerbahçe by a resounding 3-0, where the Turks have greatly accused the absence of the pivot Vesely.

The Barça clings to the offensive talent of his players, where he will ultimately need an individual performance of Nikola Mirotic, which has been very off throughout the entire series. In the fourth game, the culé team left some very worrying sensations, where they lost for a clear 74-61, but the most serious thing was the little offensive balance in one of the strongest teams in the Euroleague. Without going any further, in this series the first and eighth of the regular phase are facing each other.

Nick Calathes with 19 points and Cory Higgins with 13 they were the only offensive resources that Barça showed in the second consecutive game played in St. Petersburg.
Brandon davies, who in the third game scored 22 goals, remained at a Pyrrhic point where again Nikola Mirotic He went unnoticed with only 7 points in almost 30 minutes of play.

This doubtful beginning has been accusing him throughout the series, where despite putting 2-1 ahead with the triumph for 70-78 In the third game, he has never shown a clearly superior rhythm of play. In this “final” Today you need to do it to return to a Final four that by quality of staff should be required.

The technician of the Russian team, Xavi Pascual, is a historical of the Blaugrana club, since it won the Barça’s second Euroleague in 2010, and has already shown during the tie of the effectiveness of his board, before a Jasikevicius that on the blackboard so far has been surpassed.
