Summary and result of Barcelona – Zenit: Euroleague playoff 2020-21

But, for this, you must correct all problems from previous matches:

– Niko Mirotic has disappeared from the map. The Spanish power forward of Montenegrin origin is living a nightmare in the quarterfinal tie. Out of rhythm, without confidence, without success in attack, without toughness in defense, disappeared in many sections of the games and denied when he tries to contribute.

– A team without ideas in attack. As the matches have progressed, it has become more apparent that Sarunas Jasikevicius has always been in tow of a Pascual who has thrown the trap on Barça’s normally brilliant attack.

– Abrines runs out of aim. Almost everyone in Barcelona is below his level, but it is striking that Álex Abrines has not scored a triple so far in the series. You have failed all three you have tried.

– The labyrinth of Jasikevicius. The Lithuanian coach is tied up, he has not offered clear solutions for his team to pick up pace after falling into the ambush of Pascual.

-The referents in low hours. It’s not just Mirotic. Hanga appeared (he was decisive) in the resolution of the second game but has had little weight afterwards, Claver is not physically well and enters and leaves the team, Higgins adds but without the lucidity of other times and Kuric, with notable stretches, costs him more act as a specialist
