First slope for Madrid

The season began with the Super Cup almost a month ago and step by step it has been taking flight with the ACB and the Euroleague. There are already eight games that Madrid has accumulated with a balance of 7-1, the only defeat came last Thursday at Barça’s court (75-73 after Llull scored a triple), but this week another curtain rises, that of the first double day of the Euroleague, which is already launching the season definitively. The first big slopethe first week, of the seven that await us until the end of the regular phase, with two European duels separated by 48 hours.

Sloukas and Vezenkov’s Olympiacos awaits the whites today (20:45, Dazn)one of the main candidates to repeat in the Final Four, and red star friday (also 20:45), both at the WiZink Center, where the Euroleague returns six months later of the last match, the one they beat Maccabi on April 22 to make it 2-0 in the quarterfinal playoff. “We have to be very careful with workloads, so that they don’t get out of hand, although the important thing is to beat a very difficult opponent who plays by heart”, assures Chus Mateo, who adds: “We take into account the games and when we can train, we have to adapt and spin very fine”. And more so because on Sunday it’s the League, a tough visit to Baskonia (19:15, M+).

At Olympiacos, one of the four unbeaten teams (107 average rating), Papanikolaou is out; but Vezenkov arrives in great shape after the Eurobasket (21.5 points and 11 rebounds), Sloukas is averaging 7.5 assists, Walkup continues to work hard (5 passes and 3 steals) and watch out for Larentzakis (7 of 12 three-pointers in two games).

The demand grows for a Madrid that continues without recovering new troops (twelve fair players), with Williams-Goss (maintains discomfort in his right foot) and Hanga still out, also Rudy, Alocén and Randolph. And on the table the debate about the base position after the continuity of Campazzo in the NBA. “The Campazzo thing It’s history, he would have been a very welcome player because we know it. From now on the rumors are over and we are going to focus on the people who are here working very hard. They deserve the respect of giving them the opportunity to show how good they are. With the players that are there I’m going to die”, assures the Madrid coach.

Matthew also appreciates the moment of Sergio Rodriguez: “There will be days that he will be the magician that everyone knows, other days his game will not have the same confidence, as it happens now. The start has not been the best in the world, but Chacho is going to arrive, we will see him again. He is not a 22-year-old and we have to take care of him so that he is prepared for the moment that we most need”.
