This will be our team’s first road trip to face the principality team (19:00 CET).

Three days after the victory against UNICS Kazan in the reorganization of the teams Euroleague 19th round game, real Madrid faces a tricky road trip to Monaco in the club’s first-ever visit to the Salle Gaston Medecin. pablo LasoThe team’s Troops will be looking to claim a seventh straight win in the competition to post their best winning streak of the season. The team has three absentees for the game: Williams-Goss, who tested positive for COVID-19and talker and Hangawho wear niggles.

This is the team’s second game in the last week of January which includes three confrontations in the space of six days (on Sunday we host MoraBanc Andorra in the league). Tonight’s match will once again test the Madridistas’ fine form. Guests lead the way in Euroleague standings with 17 wins in 20 games and travel to Monaco on a six-game winning streak (best streak of the season) and last lost over a month ago. In addition, LasoHis fate prevailed during his last two trips (against Milan and Berlin). Meanwhile, the Monaco-based side sit in ninth place with a record of 10 wins and 11 losses, but are also in good form having won all of their last four matches since Sasa Obradovic took charge.

Madrid will face opponents with a strong offensive mindset who boast the second-best offensive record in the competition, with 82.1 points per game. Monaco is a physical and strong rebounding team. The hosts’ weak point is their defense, where they allow as many points as they score and almost 11 points more than our boys (71.8). LasoThe charges will have to show their solidity and then show their offensive strength. The Monegasque game revolves around Mike James, who is supported by quality players on the outside, like Bacon, absent from the meeting in Madrid, Andjusic, Diallo and Westermann. Inside, Hall and Motiejunas are two prime centers and Tavares, Pear tree, Yabusele and the company will have its work cut out for it.

A meeting, a victory
The only previous meeting between the two teams was in the reverse match, which was played in mid-October at WiZink Center and I saw the madridistas running out 94-86 winners. Madrid get on the path to victory in the first 15 minutes of this contest after tearing up a 44-19 run. This is Monaco’s first season in the Euroleaguea competition he qualified for after winning the Eurocup.
