Weißenfels (dpa) – The Syntainics MBC from Weißenfels can reach the final tournament for the German basketball cup for the first time at the weekend. After the opening win against Crailsheim, the wolves in their own hall have it in their own hands to win Group D with wins over medi Bayreuth on Saturday (6 p.m. / MagentaSport) and one day later against favorite Bayern Munich. This would allow the MBC to travel to the Final Four in Munich. Second place in the group is also attractive, as the prize money is high.
“We witnessed Bayreuth’s victory against FC Bayern live and played against each other in preparation,” said coach Silvano Poropat. “I think that everyone has enough information about the other and that there are no more secrets. With his really good performance against Bayern, Bayreuth has taken on the role of favorites in our group.” 500 spectators are allowed in each of the games in the Weißenfelser Stadthalle.
