Four days of competition will remain when the LEB Oro League closes its list of postponed matches tonight and, perhaps at that moment, the fight for direct promotion will have reached a new dimension. All this will depend on the result obtained by Movistar Estudiantes, who will receive a demanding Palmer AM Palma in their fief before whom they will try to hunt down the category leader again.

With the only loss of Álex Urtasun, who will not be able to be in the game as he did not have a license on the original date of the match, coach Diego Epifanio will live his second match at the head of the students with a complicated mission on his hands. Because the people of Madrid could end this Tuesday night as co-leaders of the League together with Covirán Granada as long as they prevail at the WiZink Center against one of the most complicated clients in the competition at the moment. A Mediterranean Soul Palmer launched towards permanence and has just reaped important results in recent weeks. The last of them, last weekend where their victory in Almansa allowed them to link two consecutive wins with which to place themselves one victory away from salvation.
Data that should serve as a warning to the Madrid team to keep the tension intact during the 40 minutes of play. This will be demanded by a rival in which Pol Figueras’ direction is being key when it comes to generating play in a team in which Pavelka is developing his best game of the course. Men that the college campus will have to stop without the presence of an Álex Urtasun who will be absent for the big event. Without him, things will be a bit more complicated on a night in which the support of the fans will play a determining role.
