They knew how to impose their law at home and that is why Perfumerías Avenida and Cadí La Seu will reach the second leg of the quarterfinals ready to finish the job in front of their fans. A task that will be pursued by a Spar Girona that won in draw in its visit to San Sebastián as well as a Valencia Basket that “signed a draw” in its visit to the WiZink Center.

It was not an easy start to the Playoffs for Spar Girona given the complexity of trying to prevail in San Sebastián, but things got too complicated for Alfred Julbe in the hours before. Because with the Covid-19 breaking into the Girona locker room, the Catalans arrived at the match in a box. Despite this, the good attitude of a team psyched up to carry out its objective, allowed them to fight against a great rival, an IDK Euskotren willing to surprise and who starred in a serious encounter. Especially after overcoming the solid start of the Girona team to begin to find their game through a Coulibaly that was gaining weight in the paint. Led by him, Azu Muguruza’s men were able to recover ground and even qualify for a victory that Laia Palau once again placed on her team’s side with great match direction at key moments (56-61).

Both the current champion and the revelation team will have something simpler for the second leg. Because both Perfumerías Avenida and Cadí La Seu will opt for the pass in front of their respective fans, in the case of the Salamanca team after a great start to the game with 34 points scored in a key first period against a Lointek Gernika team that was in tow, but He was able to reduce the differences to -15 with a great end of the match with which to maintain hope. For its part, Cadí La Seu starred in Zaragoza in one of its best games of the season to take an important step towards the semifinals. All this through an income of +18 in his favor, supported by the great game direction of the bases and the good role of the outside line (57-75).

Those who will start again from scratch will be Valencia Basket and Movistar Estudiantes who will resolve the series at La Fonteta after the tables signed at the Wizink Center in a match that was resolved without a winner. A draw backed by the great role of Gretter in the locals who took command of the outside line before the loss of Carter. The best news of the match, without a doubt, is the return of Ángela Salvadores after her injury (59-59).
