They are just one step away from being able to reach the Final Four for promotion, but none of the four teams that managed to put the 2-0 in their locker, should lose confidence given the demand that their rivals will pose on their respective tracks. Because, without any margin of error, UEMC Real Valladolid, Unicaja Oviedo, Cáceres P. Humanity and Leyma Coruña will only need to win their next two games to qualify for a fifth game.

FORECASTS: 5/8 in The pool of… Jorge Sanz (Cáceres P. Humanity)

TRACING: Results – Calendar – Official page

Four very even series were expected and in which perhaps the fifth games could prevail over the quick passes, but the dispute in the first two rounds was really forceful for the four teams that had court factor in their favor (2-0 ). Because none of them allowed themselves to be surprised in the double duel played on their tracks and where the support of their fans was decisive in being able to travel now with an extra dose of peace of mind.

Thus, Bàsquet Girona and Zunder Palencia will be the first two teams to have the opportunity to close their series by visiting the Leyma Coruña and Unicaja Banco Oviedo courts on Thursday night. Two teams that are used to performing at a high level in front of their fans and that, on this occasion, will have to cling to the environmental factor in order to increase their options to the maximum. Because victory will be the only possible result if they want to qualify for a fourth match on a Saturday night in which they would have to seek victory again in order to reach the Final Four. To do this, the Galicians will have to recover their balance between the lines and dominate the rebound against a rival from Girona who was able to nullify the quality of Nick Ward to prevail in Fontajau. For their part, the people from Oviedo will have to become strong in defense to stop the onslaught of a really physical rival and who they will have to stand up to without the presence of Oliver Arteaga, who is being the great absence of this round of quarters. The options of those from Lezkano will depend on the infallibility of Pumarín.

Already on Friday night, it will be the turn of Movistar Estudiantes and ICG Força Lleida, two teams that solved their double assault with a clear command of the game, but who know very well that their visits to Valladolid and Cáceres will not be much less simple. Because there will be a great atmosphere waiting for them in favor of the local teams and with which UEMC Real Valladolid and Cáceres P. Humanity will try to continue their great season. To do this, Paco García’s men will have to prevail over a rival who knew how to take advantage of their weaknesses in the first two rounds with a physical game that hurt the Valladolid team. Meanwhile, in Extremadura, the main objective of Roberto Blanco’s men will be to stop the duo of bases from Lleida, some Thomas Schreiner and Juani Marcos intractable in the direction of the party and who are key to the functioning of the entire team. equipment. A task that would increase the options of Extremadura when it comes to being able to think, at least, of a fourth match.
