Valencia Basket vs Durán Maquinaria Ensino:
La Fonteta defends its income against a doubly dangerous Durán Machinery
It is not easy to have to face a Durán Maquinaria Ensino that is used to being one of the most demanding teams in the competition, but if the stakes are something as ambitious as qualifying for the semi-finals, the rival’s difficulty increases. up to maximum levels.
Although, although it is true, Durán Maquinaria Ensino will not arrive at the appointment in the way desired by his coach who has seen the rhythm of play and training of his team cut off in recent days. All of this is the result of the confinement to which the team was subjected after the dispute in the first leg. A situation that could mark the development of a match in which their rival will have to be equally aware of the physical condition of their players given the high demand that the dispute of a double commitment represented throughout the weekend for the conquest of the Eurocup.
Without a doubt, a motivating agent for a squad that will arrive at the appointment ready to continue making history as confirmed by Queralt Casas in the institutional celebration of the trophy. Because, after having signed a historic record in the League (25-1), the players of Rubén Burgos are more than willing to be able to register their name in a semifinal in which the winner of the series will face Spar Girona.
But, for this, the Valencian team must contain an Aleksandra Stanacev who has just signed the best season of her career, a Helena Oma who has gained responsibility on the perimeter since her arrival, a Laura Aliaga who acts as the heart of the team on the track or to a Vega Gimeno for whom there are usually no impossibilities on the track.
The last 40 minutes of the season for one or the other and that will mark the beginning of the illusions for whoever acquires the ticket to the semifinals.
Date and Time: Friday 16 – 17: 00h
The going: Durán Maquinaria Ensino vs Valencia Basket (58-69 / +11 VBC)
The key: Control of possessions. It would not be enough for Durán Maquinaria Ensino to win to reach the semifinals since, for this, Carlos Cantero’s team will have to do so by tracing 11 points. A complicated challenge that will go through the control and use of possessions since, in the first round, Valencia Basket enjoyed up to 21 more shots than its rival, thus obtaining an advantage of 9 baskets that ended up endorsing the differences
The data: A confinement that will mark the meeting. A total of 14 days have passed since both teams met each other for the last time and, since then, the Galician team has had to face a period of confinement that has prevented the team from continuing with the planned work schedule. In this way, their options in the match will inevitably go through the performance that the team can offer on the floor, taking into account this handicap as recognized by their own coach in the hours prior to the match.
