Fenerbahce Beko are gearing up for Friday’s Turkish Airlines EuroLeague match against Russia’s Khimki Moscow Region as the Turkish basketball team are seeking a winning streak.
The Istanbul club last week ended their three-game losing spell by toppling Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv 75-65 in the EuroLeague’s Round 6 at Menora Mivtachim Arena in Tel Aviv.
Fenerbahce Beko now have a 3-3 win/loss record in the EuroLeague to take the number six spot in regular season standings.
Khimki have been facing a bad season, with only one win in six games. The Russians are currently in the 17th place.
Last week Khimki beat Serbia’s Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade 83-77 in Arena Mytishchi near Moscow to end their five-game losing streak.
Friday’s game in Istanbul’s Ulker Sports and Event Hall will tip off at 8.45 p.m. local time (1745GMT).
Fenerbahce Beko and Khimki have met 12 times in the EuroLeague since 2012.
The Turkish team had 8 wins, while Khimki came on top in four.
