With both teams tied at the top of the table, both Covirán Granada and Movistar Estudiantes will have to settle their last league match on Tuesday before fighting for the Princess of Asturias Cup on Sunday morning. And they will do it on a weekday that will lead the people of Madrid to a Pisuerga on a roll and the Andalusians to seek the support of their fans against a team with a new coach in their ranks. That yes, without stopping to look sideways at an intractable ICG Força Lleida.
FORECASTS: The pool of… Atou Diagne (Leyma Coruña)
CUP: The Princess Cup Final will be played at the WiZink Center
TV: The whole day, on LaLigaSports.tv

With almost no time to rest, the LEB Oro League returns to the courts tonight and does so with the first two duels of Matchday 27, specifically those of the top two finishers. Because both Covirán Granada and Movistar Estudiantes will face their last match before being able to focus on the Final of the Princess of Asturias Cup. A double duel with which to maintain their fight for first place and which will determine under what conditions one and the other can reach their direct duel in a week’s time, on the return to league competition.
To do this, the Andalusian team will have the complicity of the Palacio de los Deportes by receiving a wolf in sheep’s clothing on its track, a Melilla Sport Capital that arrives with a change of coach after the departure of Arturo Álvarez and the arrival of Rafa Monclova. A team forced to win as soon as possible to be able to rejoin their objectives and that will try to unsettle a leader willing to recover from the defeat suffered at the Barris Nord in Lleida last weekend. For its part, Movistar Students will travel to the historic Pisuerga Sports Center where a team awaits them in a sweet moment. Because since the arrival of Paco García to his bench, UEMC Real Valladolid has not yet known defeat (2/2). An uncomfortable rival who will try to surprise the people of Madrid on one of those nights that can change dynamics.
Two duels that will be closely followed by one of the teams that will come into play on Thursday night, an ICG Força Lleida that made up ground by beating the leader and that this time will face a most demanding duel, crossing the Cantabrian coast to visit to a Leyma Coruña more than forced to reverse his luck. Earlier, on Wednesday night, Palmer AM Palma and Juaristi ISB will continue their fight for permanence with the visit of the Basque team to CB Almansa with Afanion and the reception of the Balearic Islands to an EasyCharger Palencia that will be a complicated stone in the way.
It will be no less easy for a Levitec Huesca to receive a Bàsquet Girona in constant growth or a CB Prat that will get on the bus to visit the TAU Castelló in a day that will close with the visit of the HLA Alicante to the Multiusos de Cáceres.
