The Villeurbanne players want to continue their momentum. A week after knocking out Bayern Munich away, they hope to take on Fenerbahçe in the LDLC Arena.
In the Istanbul ranks, there stands a familiar face. Amine Noua, who joined the Turkish club during the season, spoke before this confrontation. “It’s going to be really great to be back in my hometown. It's a special match for me against my former team ASVEL. I'm really happy to be back here with a great team like Fenerbahçe, it's a great honor for me. I will give everything for Fener' to come back with a victory. We have an important game ahead of us and we have to play the right way.” he told Skweek.
Last season, the Frenchman allowed ASVEL to achieve one of its rare victories, against Olympiakos.
Still deprived of Nando de Colo, not fully recovered, the Villeurbannais will have to achieve a perfect score in order to deprive Fener' of their 15th victory of the season.
