After beating Panathinaikos Athens and UNICS Kazan, AS Monaco are attacking the most successful club in EuroLeague history: Real Madrid. For the third day of the competition, the Roca Team is playing at the club in the Spanish capital this Wednesday. A seemingly test meeting for Zvezdan Mitrovic’s team, who will have the opportunity to see if they can annoy the best. She will notably have to face a very large racket, which dominates the rebound thanks to Walter Tavares but also Vincent Poirier.
“Real is with Barcelona, Efes and CSKA Moscow what is best in Europe, recalls the Montenegrin technician on the club website. Real is one of the 4 best teams in the EuroLeague, this season they want to return to the Final Four. It will be interesting for our French players to find the 4 internationals of the French Team of Real, Heurtel, Yabusele, Poirier and Causeur. We are going to Madrid on the ground of discovery against one of the best European teams. It will be very difficult but we have to learn, it will be instructive to see how my team will behave in the face of such adversity. We are going to face the best players, it is a good test for us, without too much pressure and if we ever have the opportunity to create a surprise we will try to seize it. To face Real Madrid and Barcelona in EuroLeague 48 hours apart is a very special moment in the history of AS Monaco. “
In between at 8:45 p.m.
