NEWS | 13/11/2019Pablo Laso, Llull and Rudy attended the event along with Borja Vilar, regional general manager of the leading online investment company in Europe.
The coach was the one in charge of opening: "We're going in to the Clasico in good shape. They're special matches, which generate beyond the normal. We're up against a great opponent, who always have very good players and force us to put in a good performance if we want to win. The team is confident. For us, playing at home is an incentive and a motivation and we hope there will be a great atmosphere at el Palacio".
Llull: "The Clasico is always special".
"It's always a special game and more so playing at home. We're training well and we're looking forward to it. We will try to put in a solid 40 minutes to get an important victory. This year the Euroleague is more competitive, with two more teams. It's a very difficult competition and you have to fight for all the wins".
"A full WiZink Center gives us that extra energy and motivation to go one step further and get the victory. The fans love Real Madrid and fill the court whoever the opponents are. That's appreciated because they make our job easier".
Rudy: "It's a game we all like to play in".
"It's a game where every player likes to be on the court. It would be important to win for the standings. It's a long and demanding season and every match is important. It's normal that teams like ours have 16 players to compete well in this demanding Euroleague".
"Seeing the WiZink Center full makes us committed to the jersey and badge we wear. In games like this the Palacio is the sixth man. We also have to thank the fans for continuing to fill the Palacio in matches that maybe the opponents are not as well know".
The event ended with a photo and Borja Vilar received a basketball team jersey with the number 1 and the name of the new sponsor on it".
