“We stayed focused against Olympiacos, who are a dangerous team”, said Tavares.
Chus Mateo spoke at the press conference after Real Madrid’s victory over Olympiacos at the WiZink Center. The Madrid coach heaped the praise on his players: “We produced a good defensive display from the start. All 12 players gave everything. We tried to make life difficult for their most dangerous players on the court. As a team we defended excellently and didn’t let them score too easily”.
“The players deserve the victory and the chance to make it through to the playoffs after such a tough season. Deck, Tavares and the rest of the squad have done a great job. We need one more win to reach the next stage”.
Tavares: “We’ve picked up a really important win”
“We knew the match was going to be difficult. Chus Mateo told us to press them in defence from the start and that we would deliver in attack. This helped us in the third quarter, as we began with the same intensity as in the first quarter. We stayed focused against a dangerous team, who have great players. We’ve done a great job and we’ve picked up a really important win”.
