It doesn’t matter that he Oviedo be bottom. Or that they accumulate seven defeats in as many days since the start of the competition and, therefore, have not yet won. The visit to Pumarin (12.30 pm) always turns on all orange alerts. The motto He only knows how to lose on the Asturian court in the regular season. Two years ago, in the promotion playoff, Zach Monaghan broke the curse with a basket that gave the win and a pass to the semifinals. It is the only one that appears on the service sheet of the people from A Coruña, who cling to the good defense and choral work in attack that has accompanied them this season to try to put a folder on the curse and continue looking towards the top of the table in the one in which there are more and more teams in a fist. Diego Epifanio will be able to count on the entire staff, even with Olle Lundqvist. The Swede has returned this week to train at the same pace as his teammates and will be able to face what was his team last year.

Leyma’s dynamics are winning while they will find a rival who was drowned in problems at the start of the season. Injuries, lack of players, unfinished team already started the competition… and seven defeats as a result. They already met in preseason and the result was a resounding orange victory. But just this week has been the first in which the Asturians have been able to see the light and work normally. “They play at home and they are going to make it difficult for us,” he confirms Diego Epifaniowhich highlights that it is a young squad, with a great future, in which experience puts it arteaga, its highest reference. “Tactically, it is a team that has worked very well in many defensive situations to take advantage of the game without the ball,” he analyzes. “And Arteaga and Andrejevic are dangerous generators, both in low post situations and direct blocks. It is a team that is going to demand a lot from us, they play at a high pace and you have to control the rebound and your individual quality ”, he adds.
