For the first time since 2008, Joventut is playing in the Endesa League semifinals. Not only that, but they made a big surprise on Sunday and beat Barcelona in Blaugrana, so now they have the opportunity to reach the domestic championship finals in front of their fans. For something like that, they will have to beat the Catalan giant twice in two days. Joventut played a great season in Europe as well until the round of 16. They finished the Eurocup group stage in first place ahead of Partizan and Metropolitans, and they did not lose a single game at home in Badalona. However, they experienced a shock against Ulm at the beginning of the knockout phase and thus lost the chance to play in the Euroleague next season. Head coach Carles Duran did a great job with this group of players created around veterans Ante Tomic and Pau Ribas. Youngster Joel Parra took the opportunity every time when he was on the court, and Derek Wills also have an important role in the coach Duran system. Joventut is still an outsider in this series, but if they win game number three, they will be one step away from a sensational result.
👊 Seguim treballant. Ara ens toca fer de l’Olímpic un fortí!

Barcelona again failed to achieve the main goal for this season. One of the most expensive teams in the history of European basketball once again did not win the Euroleague and the reconstruction of roster is inevitable. According to Spanish media, many players will leave Barcelona this summer, while the position of head coach Sarunas Jasikevicius is secure, but even that could change if Joventut eliminate them in this semifinal series. For the second season in a row, Barcelona was the best club in Europe during the regular season, but in decisive games in the Euroleague final four they failed. On top of all that, they were eliminated by their biggest rival Real Madrid. Barcelona will have to find motivation because in case they win the Endesa League, they could consider the season partly successful because they have already won the Copa del Rey, but this team has been building for three years to win the Euroleague, and they can’t do it. In the second game against Joventut, they looked disastrous in defense and the commitment on that side of the floor will have to be much greater in order to win at least one of two next games in Badalona.

Joventut vs. Barcelona Prediction
Barcelona must not put themselves in a situation to trail 2-1 in this series because they have shown many times in the last two years that they don’t play well under pressure, and they would be under enormous pressure in game number four if they lose this game.
