Third against first. Duel at the top between two of the teams seeking direct promotion as leaders of the Regular League. The ICG Força Lleida hosts Covirán Granada in one of the last efforts of Gerard Encontr’s men to stick to their rival. The defeat in Valladolid separated them in three games from the Andalusians, so another setback would be irreparable. For their part, Pablo Pin’s men have marked this date as one of the keys to their final stretch of the season. Winning in Lleida would mean eliminating a rival and taking away one of the most complicated outings of those that remain, where only two teams from the lower zone have won, Juaristi ISB and Afanion with Almansa.
Precisely the people of La Mancha will be the protagonists of another of the interesting clashes on Friday. Those from Almansa visit Alicante with different objectives. Another team in trouble is Melilla Sport Capital, which has accumulated three consecutive defeats, and which hosts UEMC Real Valladolid with the ‘Paco García’ effect. The Friday night session closes with Easycharger Palencia vs. Levitec Huesca, with Alto Aragón in a desperate fight to avoid relegation.
And precisely that fight gives a special appeal to the Sunday morning game. CB Prat and Palmer Alma Mediterránea Palma meet forces after two victories a week ago and with the Balearic Islands in need of victories. Juaristi ISB is precisely between the two in the standings, and will not have an affordable match against a Tau Castelló team that has not won away since the end of January.
The next two duels will be played by playoff teams. Bàsquet Girona continues to climb positions thanks to the Gasol-Fjllerup duo at full capacity and will face Acunsa Gipuzkoa who have only won one of the four matches in March. While in the north, Unicaja Banco Oviedo and Leyma Coruña will experience one of the most interesting matches after the defeats of the previous day. And the day will close at the WiZink Center, with Movistar Estudiantes hosting Cáceres, a World Heritage Site, after knowing the results of their rivals.
