“Betis are going through a tough moment, but they’re a dangerous side”, added the madridista coach.

Real Madrid coach Chus Mateo spoke at the press conference ahead of his side’s clash against Real Betis Baloncesto on matchday nine of the Liga Endesa (Sunday, 12:30 pm CET): “They’re going through a tough moment because they’re down at the bottom of the table and they need to find a way out of that situation. We have to make the most of our past experience and understand exactly what Liga Endesa games are like when you’re playing EuroLeague double-headers.”
“We have to be mentally prepared to play against a side that’s going to throw everything at us. The team’s working along the path we want to take and we don't want to be deterred by any praise that may come our way. We have to keep our feet on the ground and approach the games in the right mindset and, when the time comes, to compete for trophies, we have to be ready.”

“We’re up against a dangerous side. They’re second in terms of three-point shooting and on the inside they’ve got players like Báez and Tsalmpouris who can open up the court. Good results are a great help and make you feel that you’re doing your job properly. We have to take these consecutive victories at face value and continue working in the same way.”
