Sergio Llull, for 1,000

The wheel does not stop turning for him Real Madrid and Sergio Llull. After the shot of his life, the shot that gave his club the glory of the eleventh European Cup last Sunday in Kaunas, an extra-complicated performance against Fall that ends like so many other attempts by Mahón in hot moments, that life continues . And it will do so with an Endesa League match against Real Betis in which the ’23′ of the whites can further swell his historic backpack of experiences with one more.

If he played the match this Wednesday, May 24, matchday 34 of the ACB, Llull would reach 1,000 matches wearing the Chamartín club elastic. Given that the achievement of the Euroleague will be celebrated at the event, presenting the trophy to the fans at the WiZink Center, and that Sergio will be one of the great claims -if not the greatest- of it, his presence is also expected within track.

Just another player generation matehad reached that pompous figure. Felipe Reyes left his in 1,046 presences. Llull stays behind. The Menorcan player has amassed so far, since he arrived in May 2007, 999 games: 563 in the League, 374 in the Euroleague, 37 in the Cup, 23 in the Super Cup and 2 in the Intercontinental.

Real Madrid seeks to secure the second starting drawer for the ACB Playoff 2023. The first one belongs to Barça, who will have the court-factor guaranteed against all rivals in all rounds, and that second place is at stake with Baskonia. Madridistas and Baskonistas, if they win in the quarterfinals, they will face each other in the semifinals, five games, so they will have home court advantage (and even more so between these two, since Cazoo Baskonia has won all four matches this season between the League and the Euroleague). it seems important.

Sergio Llull’s record and a memory

The other time something like this was held, in June 2019, Felipe Reyes was the protagonist. The president, Florentino Pérez, presented him with a commemorative shirt, as usual. Llull, at that moment, said the following to praise his partner: “The 1,000 games of Reyes are amazing. He’s breaking records that I don’t think anyone is going to break because very few people get to play until they’re 40. It’s incredible. It is a privilege for me to share a dressing room with him. He is an example both on and off the track and we are proud that he is our captain.”. And the record breaks through before him four years later.
