Real Madrid News
Real, after a visiting triumph at Khimki (95:78; Fernandez 16 points, Tavares 11 points and eight rebounds), reached the sixth consecutive Euroleague triumph. As in the last round of the Spanish Endesa League, the city rivals Fuenlabrad (100: 72; Tavares 15 points and 13 rebounds, Doncic 14 points, 10 rebounds and six assists) have been downplayed in the series from 12 consecutive victories in both competitions. Two weeks ago in the Endesa League they also celebrated in Vitoria with 81:69 (Causeur 15, Fernandez and Doncic for 12 points) and are leading with a 15-1 lead.
But it was, however, only part of the debt for the catastrophe of the 7th round of Euroleague, in which they were defeated by 75: 105, and they have a lot of motives to revenge the basketball players of Baskonia. Tavares, who has been hired for numerous injuries and has recorded 10.5 points and 10 rebounds in the last two months, proved to be a full hit. Real lost this season on Khimkiy and Red Stars in the field and in the Endesa League of Barcelona. “Kings” are the second most effective Euroleague team (85.6), and guests are third (81.1). I can not count on the injured Llulla, Kuzmic and Randoplh.
Probable starting lineup of Real: Campazzo, Causeur, Yusta, Thompkins, Tavares
