Girona Team News

Elite basketball returns to Girona after 14 years. It was the last time the club from this Catalan city played in the ACB league. They beat Estudiantes last season in the LEB Oro playoffs and secured their return to the strongest Spanish clubs.

The key player of this team is Marc Gasol, a former NBA superstar and one of the best players of the Spanish national team in the last few decades. He is also the president of the club, so it was questionable whether he would be able to play because of that position, but on Tuesday it was announced that he would be able to.

Although he is 37 years old, he will contribute a lot to this team with his experience. Another player with a lot of experience is playmaker Quino Colom, who has played a handful of important ACB and Euroleague games in his career.

Girona played well in the preparatory period. They showed their best performance in a friendly match against Joventut, which they won 93-89. Cameron Taylor was very noticeable in that game and the American has been putting up good numbers during friendlies.

Real Madrid Team News

The current champions of Europe started the new season the same way they ended the previous one. They defeated Barcelona in the final of the ACB Supercup 89-83 after overtime and thus won the first trophy in the new competitive year. Before that, they defeated Real Betis 100-69 in the semi-finals.

The players of Real Madrid have already shown in these matches that they will hunt for titles in all competitions this season. The team’s roster was further strengthened during the summer. They signed Dzanan Musa, MVP of the ACB League last season, who immediately showed all his qualities. The Bosnian scored 19 points against Barca, and 21 points in the semi-final.

Apart from him, Sergio Rodriguez returned to the capital of Madrid, and newcomers are Mario Hezonja and Petr Cornelie, so this team is full of experience and individual quality. The most important change is in the position of head coach, Chus Mateo succeeded Pablo Laso.

This coach was in the coaching staff of previous seasons, so all the players are well acquainted with his tactical ideas.
