The Unicaja prepare from now the next game of Endesa League against Valencia Basket. A cashier victory could put the people from Malaga with two more victories than their rival for this next round. For this appointment there will be an apparent “advantage” and that is that Álex Mumbrú’s team will have a double Euroleague appointment this week before receiving the Los Guindos team starting at 5:00 p.m., on Sunday afternoon.
The first game will take place this Tuesday (8:30 p.m.) against the real Madrid. With one of the tightest Euroleagues in memory at the classification level, at least at this start, each game is vital. Neither of them arrives with great feelings. Valencia has not given reliability in the league and those from the capital are traveling this season on a roller coaster.
After playing that first match, Valencia will have to receive the zalgiris. The “good” news for the typesetters is that the European game will be on Friday in the last section of the competition schedule (8:45 p.m.). So that Valencia will play two games in less than 48 hours. There will, in fact, be around 43 hours from the end of the clash against the Lithuanians and the start of the match against the compositors.
Unicaja work plan
Unicaja, meanwhile, will have a much more relaxed work plan. Ibon Navarro is already preparing in Los Guindos together with his coaching staff for matchday 9 of the Endesa League. However, he has decided to rest the six international players-Perry, Alberto, Brizuela, Barreiro, Ejim Y Kravish– until Wednesday, after they only had a couple of training sessions before the Monbus Obradoiro with hardly any recovery time. A rest time that will be ideal for Kendrick Perry to overcome his back discomfort 100%.
Unicaja will train fully from Wednesday, there will be a break on Thursday, a new work session on Friday and now on Saturday they will travel to Valencia, so they will arrive with much more rest than the rival to the league game. Advantage?…
