"Our chances of finishing as the top seed are in our own hands", declared the Whites' coach.
Pablo Laso addressed the media ahead of the Matchweek 16 league match-up that sees Real Madrid square off against Tecnyconta Zaragoza at the WiZink Center (12:30pm CET). The Whites' coach previewed the contest in the following terms: "We know that we face a demanding schedule and that the teams that come into games on the back of a full week of preparations are very well prepared. We'll have to put in a big performance if we're to win". 

"The league is very competition and you get the feeling that every game is difficult. There are a lot of teams in the relegation battle with little difference in the number of games they've won, a lot of sides going for the Copa del Rey, which is a major target. We've assured our place in the Copa del Rey, which speaks volumes of the work put in by the team. Our chances of finishing as the top seed are in our own hands".

"We have great respect for Tecnyconta Zaragoza, who is having a very good and solid season and has a lot of players with great experience in this league: Fran Vázquez, Radovic, Seibutis, McCalebb... The arrival of Justiz has given them a lot of solidity on the inside. It's a team with a great deal of experience and they're showing that by playing some good basketball and have injected some fresh impetus with several young players".
