BAXI Manresa visits Badalona with the desire to stand up in the Catalan derby
The Manresa team plays a complicated match this Saturday at 18:00 in Badalona (Movistar+ Deportes), against a well-known rival and with a new addition: Vladimir Brodziansky.
The Endesa League continues and this time the Bages team visits la Penya, a team that will play the Copa del Rey as host in a few days. Matthias Tass and Adam Waczynski, who is still recovering from injury, will be left out of the call-up.
After playing a series of matches at the Nou Congost, BAXI Manresa travel to Badalona for a new matchday of the league, where they will try to get out of the low positions of the classification. In recent matches, the Manresa team have not been able to overcome either Real Madrid or Telekom Baskets Bonn, and they are looking forward to facing off in the Catalan derby. The Reds will have the entire squad, except for Matthias Tass, who has not been called up for the match, and Adam Waczynski, who is still recovering from his soleus injury.
On the other hand, Joventut won their last match against Surne Bilbao Basket, despite suffering a defeat in European competition on Wednesday. In addition, it is classified for the Copa del Rey, where its opponent in the quarter finals will be Baskonia. They have also incorporated a new face: Vladimir Brodziansky. The center, who had already been at la Penya, returns to the Badalona team to strengthen the inside game. Among its players, men like Ante Tomic or Joel Parra stand out.
Pedro Martínez was speaking before Saturday's match and explained that "la Penya is a team that keeps players from last year and that they have strengthened; they are to fight for all the titles: Cup, Eurocup...; we are looking forward to a good game, to compete, and even though we know that it is very difficult, we will not give up the match as lost; after the Unicaja match, which was a disappointment, we had to play against Madrid and against Bonn and that makes it look like you can't win; the past is the past, we have to go in good spirits for tomorrow».
