ORNicaragua faces a triple somersault on this last day of the Endesa League. Malagueños depend on themselves to sneak into the final party for the title. The defeat of MoraBanc Andorra means that if those of Katsikaris are able to beat Real Madrid next Sunday at the Carpena they will be the eighth at the end of the regular phase. The challenge is enormous since Unicaja has not been able to win three consecutive games in all that we have been in 2021. The last time the Los Guindos team achieved it was at the beginning of December and still with Luis Casimiro on the bench.
It would also be the first time that the Costa del Sol team won a match against any of the first three classified in the ACB. Five defeats in their games against Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Lenovo Tenerife. Fotis Katsikaris moved in this line when he spoke in the preview of a match that will also be marked by the anger of the composer fans who continue to plan a protest in the hours before the match. “We are going for the last game, it is a very big challenge for the team to try to beat the best team in the league and one of the best in Europe, Real Madrid. Despite so many ups and downs in recent games, we have managed to win the last two games and now we have this last challenge, to beat Real Madrid and get into the Playoffs. “
Unicaja has not been left out of the playoffs in the last eight years. The last time was in 2013 with Jasmin Repesa on the bench. Joan Plaza would arrive later to return a certain part of the greatness lost in the last two decades. All this coincides with the statement from the bank Unicaja that it will continue to be the main sponsor of the Malaga team in the 2021-2022 campaign. “The contribution of Unicaja Banco thus gives continuity to the more than 44 years of uninterrupted collaboration and financial support to the Club by the Bank and the institution that has preceded it, the Unicaja savings bank,” read the brief statement from the sponsor of the typesetters.
