Real Madrid - Kirolbet Baskonia

Real Madrid-Manresa: the League is back at the Palacio five weeks on

See video

NEWS | 17/03/2019 | Edu Bueno

The Whites host the seventh-placed side after beating Baskonia on the 10th of February in their last home clash (12:30pm CET).
After two league matches away from home, both ending in wins on the courts of Andorra (66-87) and Joventut (74-83), Real Madrid return to the WiZink Center to face a Manresa side inside the play-off positions. The Whites, who on Thursday secured home-court advantage in the Euroleague with an exhibition against Khimki (75-100), will be hoping to pick up their eighteenth win in the League and remain unbeaten this year at el Palacio in the process.
 
Real Madrid head in to a difficult match both in terms of the opponents, one of the surprise packages this season, and also due to fatigue after the long trip to Moscow just three days ago. In the Nou Congost, the team led by Laso came out on top in a tight game (78-83). Since then, both have won four of the five games played. In the last decade, the Whites have picked up 15 wins on 16 visits to Manresa.

There will be a tribute to the Real Madrid youth team at half-time after they won the Minicopa.

Real Madrid boasts the competition's best offense (averaging 88.5 points) while Manresa average six points less (82.2). They are two of the league's most physically imposing sides, though the Whites will be without Ayón, who sprained his ankle against Khimki. The visitors will have to do without their starting point guard Corey Fisher, one of their key men in offense (12.4 points) and have doubts over Tomás and Lalanne. The team from Peñarroya are known for their attacking solidity, and have committed the second-fewest turnovers to date.

Real Madrid strong at the back
The return of Thompkins, the team's leading scorer in the League with almost 14 per game, was another piece of good news to come out of the recent clash in Russia. The American ace has not played domestically since the 3rd of February against Unicaja. Coming up against Real Madrid is not only about matching their impressive point-scoring feats. Across their last three League wins, they've conceded just 72 points, seven below their average, while in the Euroleague they're showing some of their best defensive statistics in the last five years. The Whites will have to keep a close eye on their opponents' prowess from the three-point line, with specialists like Toolson or the recent arrival Murphy. All out for the win ahead of a week of three games inside five days.

There will be a tribute to the Real Madrid Under-14s at half-time after they won the  Minicopa at the WiZink Center in February.
