Tied for everything at the head of the qualifying table, the direct duel between leaders on Sunday morning will be vital for its protagonists although, although it is true, the victory or defeat will not be far from definitive with six days still ahead. Of course, whoever manages to prevail will have a lot to gain, especially if the holder of that victory manages to secure a direct average that currently favors Covirán Granada after their victory in the first round match (+11 / 69-58). For this reason, Movistar Estudiantes will have to make what is probably going to be the best effort of the season so far to try to prevail over a doubly dangerous rival since Covirán Granada will arrive with a thirst for revenge after the defeat suffered last week in the Cup final. A game in which their bad start took its toll, leaving an important lesson for Pablo Pin’s men ahead of a key date for their immediate future. Because a victory would mean a +1 plus the average over second place with six days of competition remaining. The totally opposite effect that Jota Cuspinera’s men will seek since, for this, they must win by at least 11 points.

And their pursuers will be very attentive to what happens there, especially an ICG Força Lleida team that will take to the field on Friday night looking for victory against an Acunsa Gipuzkoa willing to reverse their luck in such a complicated scenario. Because, in order not to lose sight of the first two classifieds, the team from Lleida will have to make the most of the magic of the Barris Nord. And it is that the victory would even allow to maintain the tranquility of a third place that would not be in danger before the direct duel of Fontajau between an EasyCharger Palencia one step away and a Bàsquet Girona willing to continue feeding their desire for growth with a victory with the that bridge the gap.

Although no less important will be the duels of those teams immersed in the fight for permanence with Palmer AM Palma, moving on Friday night to the TAU Castelló court ready to transform their growing illusion into a new victory or with two demanding matches to CB Prat and Juaristi ISB who will receive CB Almansa with Afanion and Cáceres P. Humanidad respectively. Levitec Huesca will travel to one of the most difficult courts in the category to face Unicaja Oviedo in Pumarín, while Melilla Sport Capital will debut Rafa Monclova’s stage at the head of the team with a demanding rival on the other side of the track, the growing Leyma Coruña.

The fans of HLA Alicante and UEMC Real Valladolid will have to wait for something else, since their teams will not take to the court until next Wednesday night, when both meet on the Pedro Ferrándiz parquet in search of a key victory in their aspirations to Playoffs.
