J.11: The first tickets for the Queen’s Cup, at stake in Bembibre and Girona
After the defeat suffered last weekend in the classic and after having overcome a long Euroleague trip, the Perfumerías Avenida will travel this weekend to the Bembibre Arena to try to recover its way between the Embutidos Pajariel Bembibre. A duel in which victory would mean that Roberto Íñíguez’s men would pass to a 2022 Queen’s Cup, which Spar Girona could access in the event of a home victory against Lointek Gernika and as long as the results are in line with their interests. .
The Copa de la Reina is just around the corner and, after Valencia Basket’s classification as a local team, the competition could have two new guests this weekend as Perfumerías Avenida and Spar Girona will have their first opportunities when it comes to certifying the pass.
Perfumerías Avenida lost their undefeated status last weekend during their classic against Spar Girona and they then had to face a complicated Euroleague move. Two demanding tests that will weigh on the legs, but that the leader of the competition will have to put aside during his visit to the Bembibre Arena. A duel against his former coach Pepe Vázquez and in which the Salamancans will try to regain their way looking for a victory that would also mean their mathematical classification for the Copa de la Reina 2022.
A competition in which Valencia Basket will once again act as host and Spar Girona could also arrive this week as long as Alfred Julbe’s win over Lointek Gernika and the results of third parties are favorable to their interests. A meeting not without difficulty such as the one that measures Valencia Basket at the Fonteta with a Baxi Ferrol willing to take advantage of the losses of Cristina Ouviña and Raquel Carrera to be able to prolong their positive streak.
Equally valuable could be the weekend for Cadí La Seu since Bernat Canut’s men will have to face the SPAR Gran Canaria in search of a victory that could notably pave their way to the Queen’s Cup with the added value of being able to choose to seeded status for the draw. Although the Catalans will have to look askance at the Lointek Gernika meeting as well as the Teledeporte duel where the Campus Promete will receive an IDK Euskotren who is currently moving a victory below the cut.
Although if there are two teams excited about this background of the Cup, those will be Madrid, because Movistar Estudiantes will fight for the fourth consecutive against a Kutxaban Araski that marks the cut from Mendizorrotza right now while Innova tsn-Leganés will try to continue with its climbing against a Tenerife that will arrive at the European Pavilion in a difficult situation as bottom.
The day will be completed from Lugo with the confrontation between a Durán Maquinaria Ensino in need of victories to escape from the bottom and a Casademont Zaragoza ready to take an important step forward towards the Cup.
