Equality and emotion in the last visits to the court of Divina Seguros Joventut


Valencia Basket starts its 2019 in the Endesa League by visiting the court of Divina Seguros Joventut (Sunday 6, 12:30h, Olímpic Badalona, Movistar Deportes) in a new direct confrontation between two teams that are struggling to get one of the six remaining spots for the Copa del Rey Madrid 2019. A triumph of the taronja squad (9-5, +24) would keep alive a positive dynamic in the current season that is already of nine wins in a row. And although a win would not classify it mathematically for the tournament, it would be an almost definitive step forward to get the ticket for Madrid. The black and green team (8-6, -24) has added two victories in his last two games (at home against Iberostar Tenerife and on the court of UCAM Murcia) to stay fully involved in the fight to return to the Copa del Rey for the first time since 2015. And will try to stay strong in their own court (4-2 at Olímpic), where in their last two home games has won Unicaja and the aforementioned Iberostar Tenerife.


Emotion and equality in recent precedents

If there is something that has guaranteed the match-ups between Divina Seguros Joventut and Valencia Basket in the Olympic Badalona in recent years has been even matches and emotion to the end. The taronja team will try to break their bad dynamics in this court since the last two visits of Valencia Basket to the black and green feud ended with two defeats for a single basket.
