It will be a single match, but with it, the LEB Gold League will kick off a really intense month of January, in which the competition will recover a large part of the matches postponed over the last two weeks. The first of them, the great game in Pumarín where Unicaja Banco Oviedo will host EasyCharger Palencia in its fiefdom.

Both teams had suffered different infections by Covid in their respective squads, but once they have overcome both Unicaja Banco Oviedo and EasyCharger Palencia they will be able to face each other to recover their postponed duel on matchday 12. A match that will take place two weeks later, on the parquet from Pumarín and with both teams already in daily training dynamics, which has allowed them to work on such a demanding confrontation. Because the visit to Oviedo will not be far from easy for a group from Palencia that returned to the slopes on the 26th looking to recover sensations before getting on the bus. Because those who will meet Pedro Rivero’s men will be one of the most complicated challenges of this final stretch of the first round with both teams equaled eight victories and the need to win to continue competing for the Final of the Princess of Asturias Cup .
For this, Natxo Lezkano will have to prevail over his former team with a roster in which precisely two former members of the Palencia team stand out, on the one hand the guard Jeff Xavier and, on the other, the center Oliver Arteaga. Undoubtedly, two real concerns for an EasyCharger Palencia led by Blumbergs and Fall to try to threaten from positions close to the rims.
