The coach of Baxi Manresa, Pedro Martinez, highlighted in the press conference prior to the match that will face Acunsa Gipuzkoa Basket Club that his team has not lost more than two games in a row this season and that is reason to be confident in their chances of victory.
“Our main objective is accomplished. Then we want to qualify for the Champions League, but it is not up to us. It is not a final for Manresa, it is for them. For the season we are doing, I am hopeful of making a good game, as we have not lost more than two in a row in the League
Endesa“, sentenced the Catalan coach.
The match is vital for the Basques, who are the last classified in the competition, who need to win to maintain their chances of remaining in the league. For their part, the Manresa team wants to change the dynamics of the last matches, where they have clearly lost against the Joventut of Badalona (96-68) and the Coosur Betis (86-70).
Pedro Martinez expects a rival “more physical” than the one in the first round, which he beat 71-78: “In that game we played more physical and they couldn’t match it, partly because of the casualties. It’s a team that has already been capable to beat Burgos, Tenerife or Valencia among others. I expect a very competitive team “.
In this sense, the Catalan coach did not want to go deeper into the rival, remembering that he prefers to always worry about how his team arrives.
“We have many physical problems in this final stretch of the season and we must see that players arrive healthy at the remaining games,” he said Pedro Martinez.
