Uoči poslednjeg kola regularnog toka Evrolige, sve oči su uprte ka dnu tabele. Najuspešniji su odavno poznati: Real, CSKA i Olimpijakos. Međutim, nakon neočekivanih rezultata u poslednja tri kola, javila se velika gužva oko osmog mesta.

Crveno-beli fijasko

Dugo najavljivani spektakl između Zvezde i Olimpijakosa, završio se neslavno po srpske crveno-bele. Ekipa Dejana Radonjića poražena je u samoj završnici produžetka sa 64:66. Printezis je kumovao pobedi Olimpijakosa, kojom se nastavila serija od pet uzastopnih poraza Zvezde protiv kluba iz Pireja.

Zvezda lost to Olympiakos 64:66 in a tense match that was solved only 3 seconds before the end of the overtime. Printezis helped the Belgrade red and whites’ tradition of defeats in almost won matches. Despite this being known as a Brotherly Derby, with the Belgrade Arena beaming in red and white, there could be only one winner. On the long run, tonight’s score marked a small victory for Oly and a potentially huge loss for Zvezda.  Continue reading Crveno-beli fijasko

Derbi: rezultatski remi i poraz fudbala

U 153. Večitom derbiju, rezultat je bio 1:1. Samo dva gola, nebrojeno prekida, te igra nedostojna najveće domaće prvenstvene utakmice.

The derby between Zvezda and Partizan ended with a draw (1-1), though representing a defeat of the entire sport. The slow moving game, cut up by constant breaks (fouls) gave very little viewing pleasure to around 40k fans. The stadium was becoming empty even before the final whistle.

Zvezda deklasirala Galatasaraj

Crveno-beli su na domaćem terenu savladali ekipu Galatasaraja sa 77:58. Ubedljiva pobeda koja ih vodi korak bliže plasmanu u narednu fazu Evrolige, uz skor 13:10.

Crvena zvezda MTS has beat Galatasaray by 77:58 in a match that was considered as high security risk, due to the 2014. murder of fan Marko Ivković in Istanbul. Nevertheless, the match ended smoothly in Belgrade, with an easy win for the red and whites. Despite their lack of 2p and 3p precision, Zvezda pulled through thanks to rebs and numerous steals. The MVP,  Branko Lazić (17p, PIR 23) managed to stay on top all of the categories, scoring 5/5 for 3p.

Superliga: Pregled 22. kola

Nakon zimske pauze i naizgled beskrajne transfer sage u redovima Večitih, nastavljena je srpska Superliga. Proteklog vikenda je odigrano sedam predviđenih mečeva, dok je susret između Metalca i Radnika odložen.

Momenat koji je obeležio kolo, ipak je daleko od sportskog, a u centru je imao FK Rad i Partizanovog prvotimca Evertona.
