Breogán, who faces his second participation in the final phase of the Cup (the previous one was in 1990), will debut on Thursday, February 17 at 9:30 p.m. in the tournament to be held in Granada.

“Real Madrid is the leader in the Euroleague and the ACB and there isn’t much to say… They have fifteen players who can be in any team’s quintet. They have everything: good shooters, distributors, great players…”, listed.

The leader will face the revelation of the season, who currently has an outbreak of Covid, a virus that he hopes to leave behind to be fit against the whites.

He admits the clear favoritism of whites

“We are all clear that Real Madrid is, together with Barcelona, ??one of the great favorites to win this competition and in our matchup against them they are clear favourites, but we have to play, and in this time (of the pandemic) we have to see how we get there Let’s hope that neither they nor we will be touched by this virus anymore,” he wished.

In the Endesa League, only two teams beat Breogán on their pitch and one of them was Real Madrid, which won the match (71-79), but found it very difficult to win.

“I didn’t see the game, I’ll see it, but I’m sure that with that precedent they’re going to be more focused. It’s not the same to have a Euroleague game before the game as it is now, that they won’t play for a few days before the Cup. they are going to prepare,” said Mrsic, who has not yet been able to debut as a sky-blue coach.
