On the eve of the final 40 minutes of the first part of the Euroleague, fans and other Cedevita Zagreb basketball fans are most interested to all representatives of the continental elite club from December 29 to April 9 perform in Drazen’s.
The appearance of two groups with eight teams will design based on placement in the first round of the Euroleague, and so far only three places fixed. Fenerbahçe will play as A1 in Group F, while on the opposite side will be Olympiacos (B1) and Bamberg (D3). It is known that ten members of the Top 16, and the remaining three of six teams competing. Among those who still may turn out are giants such as Real Madrid and Maccabi.
Basically, Cedevita is more likely to end up in group E, because it leads the second and fourth from the current group. Croatian champion for second place must win Baskon with Olympiacosov success against Efes and defeat it automatically concreted in fourth place. In third place will end only if obeyed the Basque Country, and Efes triumphantly pass Piraeus.
Euroleague no rule that in the last round of matches to decide which play at the same time, so there may be a number of calculations and choice and rival groups. Especially for those who play in the later hours of Friday. In any case, the possibilities for a “million” and we did not want to us it looks like a boring bureaucratic ad, we will not even go on.
However, we will mention that there is a possibility that Cedevita finished in a spectacular group with 12 of the last 14 European Championship (missed to just two titles Olympiacos). Such a society is colloquially called the group of death, and it would have been the reigning champion Real Madrid, which in Drazen’s not played basketball since December 2004 (incidentally Andrija Zizic, Marko Popovic and Josip Vrankovic led Cibona to large 73-58). Zagreb has long been eager to Barcelona (since 2010), Panathinaikos (2011) and Fenerbahce (2010)
Luka Babic would best describe the state of mind in the locker room Cedevita …
– Live, just play basketball.
Veljko Mrsic, in turn, ensures that players are focused on the match against the Basque Perasovć Velimir and Darko Planinic, and not, like most, is considering Topu 16th
– Stronger for Sengel which is better than the Kangura, but are of crisis. They lost three consecutive matches, Bourousis is physically dropped. I do not want to tire out the players, but if we can, we’ll do everything to win. Walker, Zoric and Mazalin are among those who should play more, but will be expected only if the minutes are good in defense.
The youngest, 16-year-old Džanan Musa, will remain in Zagreb.
– He better five days training, and must be paid to the school.
The second youngest is 18-year-old Lawrence Mazalin.
– I have not played, but I believe in myself. I want to show everyone that I can play.
