BER Vs ANA Fantasy Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Two sides devoid of a win turn to each other to restore lost pride in their season
For Alba Berlin and Anadolu Efes, today’s encounter comes bearing with it the identity of a must win fixture. Although this is only the third clash of the Euroleague 2020-21 for either setup, with each team yet to win in the competition another defeat could be potentially damaging to their aspirations this season.
While this is a must win one for either team, Alba Berlin in particular stand in dire need of two points today. The club’s 90-72 thumping at the hands of Bayern Munich saw the club pummel all the way down into 17th place, a spot the club will be looking to claw out of at the earliest plausible.
Up against Anadolu Efes who are yet to win either in the tournament, Alba Berlin know an elusive win can easily be accumulated today. They are finally up against a levelly balanced opposition, a side which will offer them a chance to match them toe to toe in every facet of the game.

Up against an Alba Berlin unit which has offered little in the way of defensive resolve and fortitude, Vasilije Micic can easily go straight for the kill. The player’s panache saw him register a staggering 19 points and register 9 dimes the last time around, a well rounded performance to make him an instant pick for the contest.
If there’s one player who can help Alba Berlin register their opening win of the season, its Jayson Granger. In a side which has otherwise left everyone disgruntled, Jayson Granger has offered much needed solace to the club with him dropping 10 points and pulling off 6 dimes the last time around.
Maodo Lo with the four points and three rebounds will link up for the scrimmage.
The two are going to be paired alongside Marcus Eriksson who registered 15 points on the day, the highest by any player on the day as he ended up on a rampage inside the paint for his side.
Krunoslav Simon will be making a foray into our setup after his 14 point display the last time around, one which saw him touch the roof owing to his handles and crossovers which made him an untenable name on the day.
Adrien Moerman will be his partner for the fixture. Its down to his ability to protect his side’s rim, a player who has managed to not only quash attempted shots his way but more importantly pull off deflections and steals as well.
Luke Sikma from Alba Berlin will be inducted in our encounter from Alba Berlin. The player is well endowed in every aspect of the game, a name who registered 8 points, 4 assists and 3 rebounds the last time he took to the court.
Tibor Pleiss is fast rising in stature for his side. Its down to his expertise inside the paint, ones which have accorded him the chance to both shoot floating jump shots and register rebounds and blocks.
A behemoth 24 points the last time around see Simon be our star player while Granger is the pro player.
