Urbas Fuenlabrada-Real Madrid: Visitors vying to maintain unbeaten away league run

NEWS STORY. 14/11/2021. Edu Bueno

Laso’s troops, who have won all four of their away clashes, head to the Fernando Martín for Round 10 of the campaign (12:30 pm CET).

In the midst of another gruelling marathon of matches, Real Madrid returns to league action on matchday ten of the domestic campaign against Urbas Fuenlabrada at the Fernando Martín arena. The Whites have clinched victory in all of their away outings and today’s opponent poses a real threat to the team’s impressive run. The hosts may sit in the bottom half of the league standings, but they possess one of competition’s best records in terms of points, rebounds and assists racked up.
 
It’s barely 48 hours after Madrid’s win against Zalgiris in the EuroLeague (95-82) and the side once again faces a stern test before returning to European action. Real Madrid has registered eight wins from nine league games and has racked up four wins in a row in the EuroLeague. Meanwhile, Urbas Fuenlabrada sits in 16th place with a record of two wins (both on home court against MoraBanc Andorra and Baxi Manresa) and seven defeats.
 
Despite the gap between the two teams in the table, the madridistas will have to be fully focussed if they are to pick up another win. Raventós' charges are a very dangerous team, especially in attack, ranking second in the league, partly thanks to their offensive rebounding power, 38.9% in three-pointers and their league-leading assists record. Emegano is the side’s top point-scorer (15.8) behind the ruled-out Meindl.

As for Madrid, the team has been highly consistent at both ends of the court and will have to be just as solid after only conceding an average of 68.5 points in order to contain the side from Fuenlabrada. Poirier is in his best season in the league with a PIR of 15.3, and is accompanied by Tavares, Yabusele and Hanga who are also in double figures.
 
Unbeaten on the road
Madrid managed to finish last season's Regular League without losing a single game away from the WiZink Center. In the current season, the Whites have prevailed in all four of their outings (Andorra, Valencia, Lugo and Vitoria) and will be looking to extend that streak. The team has also won 10 consecutive league games against Urbas Fuenlabrada, securing victory at the Fernando Martín on its last four visits.
