Unicaja will visit the WiZink Center next Sunday at 12:30 p.m. to play the tenth matchday of the Endesa League against the intractable leader of the classification. Real Madrid, who still do not know what it means to lose this season, in the ACB and in the Euroleague, will test the triumphant streak of 8 consecutive victories that Ibon Navarro’s boys have accumulated.
Unicaja has a rest this week in the European competition. Last Tuesday the first round of the Group A group of the Basketball Champions League ended against the Greek Peristeri and they will not play again for 9 days, on Wednesday the 22nd, on the French Le Mans court.
Valencia Basket and AS Monaco, before Unicaja
On the contrary, Real Madrid will have the Euroleague this week. And also, double portion. On Tuesday, the whites will visit La Fonteta to measure their strength against Valencia Basket and on Thursday they will play at home to receive the visit of AS Monaco. Double demand for Chus Mateo’s team, who will not have much time to prepare for the Greens’ visit to the WiZink Center next Sunday morning.
18 years without winning in Madrid
Unicaja has accumulated 18 seasons without beating Real Madrid on its court. It is the most elusive court in the entire ACB for a Unicaja that during this time has won several times at the Palau Blaugrana, at the Buesa Arena or at La Fonteta, to give other examples, but who has always stumbled in the Real Madrid lair with the white stone.
