After falling on the complicated Baskonia court, BAXI Manresa faces another very complicated trip to Martín Carpena, against a Unicaja that is on a great streak of results. Those from Bages will try to surprise in a match that will start on Saturday at 18:00, live on Movistar+ Deportes and Ràdio Manresa.
With the absences that the team still has, Max Gaspà and Ladji Coulibaly will once again reinforce BAXI Manresa on matchday 12. The team travels this Friday at noon to the capital of the Costa del Sol. As explained by Pedro Martínez, Pierre Oriola and Dani Garcia have missed training due to various discomforts but will be available.
The people from Malaga, led by former Manresan Ibon Navarro, have accumulated a total of seven consecutive victories in the Liga Endesa. One of them was on Real Madrid's field, which was the only defeat for the whites this season in the highest state competition. Unicaja is a choral team that has high-level players, such as Dylan Osetkowski, Kendrick Perry, Tyson Carter, Nihad Djedovic, Kameron Taylor, David Kravish and Yankuba Sima, the latter two with a past in the capital of Bages.
Pedro Martínez highlighted in the press conference that «is a team that maintains last year's block, with a lot of rhythm and an aggressive defense...; We must try to compete as we did last week, we must be solid behind if we want to have options; Let's see if we can come out better than in the last game, although it is difficult because these physical teams start, especially at home, at 100%».
