NEWS STORY. 28/01/2023

"We're playing at a court where the fans really put the pressure on", said the coach ahead of the clash with Baxi Manresa.

Chus Mateo assessed the team's meeting with Baxi Manresa on Endesa League matchday 18: "They are tough opposition. It's deceptive to see them lower down the table because they really made life hard for us at home. They are a team that run hard and play more possessions than most outfits in Europe. They play a really quick brand of basketball and they're playing much better than when they faced us in Madrid".

"We're visiting a hard place to go where the fans really put the pressure on. We'll have to make the most of our opportunities, stay focused from the first minute and not allow them to take any kind of advantage. We'll have to run when the situation calls for it, but make sure we don't turn the ball over because they are very strong on those transitions".

Gratitude to the fans
"We'd like to thank our fans for the extra push they gave us with their support in the Clásico in the Euroleauge. We feel them right by our side in the toughest moments and the Clásico was no exception. We managed to win a game where we looked up against it, and we did so thanks to a belief and the push from the home support. The win belongs to them as well".
