Two very difficult games await our team before Christmas in Euroleague, between which we are facing easier tasks on paper.
We will play guests to Vasas Akadémia on Sunday from 6 pm in the capital. The team based in Pasarét currently occupies the 8th place on the table, which is a play-off spot with a 3-5 record. They have got valuable victories against their immediate rivals, but against the "big" teams Vasas's young players were mostly only able to gain experience. Last time out Miskolc left Pasarét with a 30-point win. We can find some talented players on Attila Földi's roster, what's more, from their international players Serbian Smailbegovic was born in 2001, while Bosnian Heljic was born in 2000. Experience is represented by 29-year-old Karakasevic, and two former youth national team members, Szonja Vukov and Vivien Böröndy. The latter has become a professional player at our Academy, and has grown to be one of the best 3x3 players in recent years.
Our team is in a tough stretch of games, so we can expect that against Vasas players who have had less opportunities to play against Kursk will have more minutes on court. Virág Weninger also expects that the emphasis will be on them this time.
Let's hope that the game will prove to be a good preparation for next Thursday's road game in the Euroleague against Hatay. The game can be followed via live statistics at hunbasket.hu website.
Our head coach Roberto Iniguez spent two wonderful years with us, who has visited our Managing Director Zoltán Török as promised with whom they agreed in a discussion about the future that he will come back to Sopron one day
