“This is a very challenging game for us, very difficult. We had a tough game here in Belgrade against Fenerbahçe. Yesterday we had our first serious training after a long time, where we tried to do something smart to hopefully look better than we did in the last Euroleague game,” said Obradović for the club’s website.
The double round of Euroleague was last week and we saw Fenerbahçe in two different pictures. Of course, we will have to prepare for this Fenerbahçe that played a phenomenal game against Maccabi. They have a lot of quality in that team. Šarunas has returned and changed many things, that is evident. The players who stayed have individual qualities, but they are translated into team play,” Obradović pointed out.
“We will prepare well, we are going to fight. Defense will be key to success. It will be tough. We need to enter the games with confidence,” said Partizan captain Kevin Panter. After the game in Istanbul, Partizan will host Maccabi on Friday. After 19 rounds, Partizan is ninth on the table with 10 wins and nine losses, while Fenerbahçe is in sixth place with one more win.
