‘A DIFFICULT MATCH AWAITS US, BUT WE DO NOT WANT RISK!’: Dejan Radonjić on numerous problems before visiting Real!

After the game in Vitoria, the Red Star basketball players arrived in Madrid on Wednesday, where the second match of the Spanish double round against Real Madrid awaits them on Thursday.

The match in the ‘Vizink center’ will be played on Thursday at 20:45. The red and whites used Wednesday for refreshment and recovery after a difficult 48 hours in which they played a match with Partizan and Basconia, along the way to Spain.

The team played the match with Baskonia without three starters, Mitrovic, Walters i Kalinic, and presumably except Mitrovic (who stayed in Belgrade and is undergoing therapy after an eye injury) will not be in red and white on Thursday Voltersa ni Kalinic who slightly injured his knees on Tuesday night.

Real defeated Aswell in Lyon on Tuesday night, and with almost 8 victories and 2 defeats, this year it will expire for the highest ranking. This will be the 12th duel between the two clubs, Real has 7 victories, the red and whites have celebrated 4 times, but there is no doubt that in the current circumstances, the Red Star team has an extremely difficult job.

– Considering our situation, we are forced to focus our thoughts on our ranks before the next game. After the duel with Baskonia, we enter the match with Real without Voltersa i Kalinic, to Mitrovic who remained in Belgrade and Erona Vajta who has been recovering for a long time after a broken arm. The situation is such that, although the injuries are minor Voltersa i Kalinic, we do not want to take any risks in terms of aggravation of these injuries, regardless of the fact that a match with Real awaits us. The team from Madrid is playing great and they are one of the candidates for the highest ranking and winning the Euroleague. Regardless of the absence of players and the great quality of the opponents, we want to give our maximum and see how much we can at this moment, he said. Dejan Radonjic.

Stefan Lazarevic left the role of favorite to the host.

– A match against one of the candidates for the highest ranking and first place awaits us. At the beginning of the season, they play extraordinarily, a team that has been refreshed with a lot of experience before the new season with several great players. We, on the other hand, have our problems, we came to Spain without Mitrovic i White, we were left without Voltersa i Kalinic in Vitoria. Still, we want to give in Madrid everything we have at the moment against one of the best teams in Europe, regardless of all the problems, he said Lazarevic.

The match in Madrid will be the fourth match for the red and whites in just 7 days after the duel with Asvel, Partizan and Basconia. Immediately after the match in the capital of Spain, the team returns to Belgrade, and on Monday they will have a new visit and a match with the team of the Student Center in Podgorica.
