Ergin Ataman’s wards are one of the strongest teams in Europe in recent years. In addition to the fact that Anadolu Efes is the most titled club in the Turkish championship, the Istanbul team won the Euroleague in the past two seasons. The current regular season “blue-white-red-blue” started well, having suffered one defeat in five starting rounds. Having overcome Galatasaray, Petkim Spor and Daryushshafaka, the offspring of Tunkay Ozilkhan lost to Bursaspor – 86:88. Then Dogush Balbay and partners confidently beat Bahcesehir University with a score of 97:68.
The team from Istanbul has a strong line-up that can achieve its goals. Only Fenerbahce can create problems for Anadolu Efes, but the Blue-White-Red-Blues can beat the Yellow-Blues.
The guys of Dimitris Itoudis are the current champion of Turkey. Last season, still under the leadership of Aleksandar Djordjevic, in the final series Fenerbahce defeated Anadolu Efes with a score of 3:1. Now the inhabitants of the Ulker Sports Arena will try to repeat the achievement already led by the Greek mentor. The start of the current championship for the “yellow-blue” turned out to be excellent. The Istanbul club has won five consecutive victories over Bahcesehir University, Buyukcekmece, Konyaspor, Manisa and Karsiyaka.
The brainchild of Ali Koch has been performing powerfully in recent years. It will not be easy for the Yellow-Blues to get the second championship in a row, but the team is quite capable of doing it.
The team from Izmir won the last league title in the 2014/2015 season. After that, Pinar Karsiyaka often went to the playoffs, but they could not achieve serious achievements. This year, the boys of Ufuk Sariji confidently started with three victories in a row over Manisa, Galatasaray and Besiktas. However, then followed by defeats from Tofas and Fenerbahce.
The Green-Reds have a lot of time ahead to improve their standings. At the same time, Pinar Karsiyaka has a powerful composition to break into the playoffs in the state. However, the Izmir team is unlikely to reach at least the final.
The team of Dusan Alimpievich last year became the silver medalists of the Eurocup. But in the domestic championship, the club from the city of Bursa was stopped in the quarterfinals of Fenerbahce. Crocodiles started this season confidently, beating Gaziantep, Turk Telekom, Merkezefendi and Anadolu Efes. But in the fifth round the club lost to Petky Spore – 72:80.
In terms of team play, the brainchild of Sezer Sezgin looks good. However, it will be difficult for Bursaspor to impose a fight on more eminent rivals if they reach the playoffs.
After losing the championship last year, Anadolu Efes will try to regain the title and there are all prerequisites for this. The powerful composition of the “blue-white-red-blue” is able to take revenge on Fenerbahce. The Blue-Yellows, with a high probability, will play with the wards of Ergin Ataman in the final. But this time the brainchild of Ali Koch will have to be content with silver medals. Pinar Karsiyaka and Bursaspor demonstrate quality basketball, but their maximum is the strongest four.
