PABLO ROMERO / COMMUNICATION AREA FEB
Six weeks have already passed since the LF Endesa will launch his inaugural ball into the air and, after this time, the competition technicians already have an important test bench on which to extract the first conclusions of the course.
And it is that, in that brief period, their teams have played a total of seven official matches and around 280 minutes of play with which they have been able to see the first details to take into account in the face of the future of the season.
Therefore, these two weeks of hiatus, on the occasion of the dispute of the first FIBA window of the course, will be essential when it comes to working on those aspects to improve alternating, yes, the work sessions with a series of rest periods that, for the most part, will take place during these first days of break.
Thus, the objective of the technical bodies is none other than to “clean heads” before resuming a physical and tactical work with which to reach the final section of the first lap in the best possible conditions.
Of course, keeping in mind that the balance may not be completely complete for two of them, some Valencia Basket and Aven PerfumeriesGoing what will the faces look like this friday at the Fonteta for the dispute of their postponed match of matchday 3.
La Fonteta decides the first great leader of the season:
They saw each other in the final of the Super Cup last September and, previously in the final of the LF Endesa, with one and the other dividing the championship titles. For this reason, the confrontation between Valencia Basket and Perfumerías Avenida will be the perfect finishing touch for this first stage of competition this Friday. A duel between the first two classified in the table and in turn between the last two undefeated in the category (6-0).
For this reason, whoever manages to prevail on the La Fonteta floor will go to the international break with something more than with the seventh victory in their pocket, they will leave with the honorary title of undefeated leader. Two words that will be extremely important for the winning coach when it comes to continuing to work on the solidification of a foundation that seems perfectly established in both cases.
The road to the Cup, in the spotlight:
That will be the main objective for a wide list of candidates throughout the next weeks of competition and until we know the final cut-off at the end of matchday 15. A classification that is usually around 7-8 victories and the that the first two classified would be really close, especially whoever achieves that 7-0 that the winner of Valencia Basket vs Perfumerías Avenida will reach.
Although their most immediate pursuers in the table are not far from their goal either, since both Spar Girona (5-2) and Cadí La Seu (5-2) and Casademont Zaragoza (5-2) could need between two and three more victories for to be able to reach your first big challenge of the course.
A path that could be traced over the next few days by drawing a table that will maintain the emotion until the end given the prevailing equality in the middle of the table with up to 9 teams within a margin of two victories.
The first emergencies arrive at the bottom:
They have not played a bad game, but fortune has not finished accompanying Movistar Estudiantes and Embutidos Pajariel Bembibre at this start of the year, who close the table with a single victory within the seven games played. A reversible situation given the large number of days ahead, but which will force a plus to both squads in the return of the competition to be able to add as soon as possible.
Ahead, the newly promoted Baxi Ferrol and I Innova-tsn Leganés, have taken a step further than their rivals (2-5) as well as Tenerife (2-5), which ensures some really important next weeks in the search for new victories with which to breathe in the table.
