- ACB: A derby without color and the heroic copera of Bilbao against Barcelona
- Bilbao: Álex Mumbrú's rematch
- Opinion: A very weak ACB
This time there were no suspicions, no hot balls. The draw for the Copa del Rey basketball, held on Monday in Malaga (home of the tournament, from February 13 to 16 at Martín Carpena ), did not hold a road without meeting until the final for the two undisputed favorites: Real Madrid and Barcelona go, this time, for the same part of the table and if they manage to overcome their respective semifinals, faces will be seen in the semifinal on Saturday (18.30).
In the last decade, it had only happened once (Vitoria 2013). The classic was always repeated in the final, except on that occasion that the Catalans defeated the Whites in the quarterfinals and in 2016 and 2017, eliminated Barça in the quarterfinals (Bilbao) and semifinals (Valencia). The last champion beyond the two ocean liners was the Baskonia - the great absent for the 84th edition - in 2009.
The other striking aspect of the raffle that took place in the Auditorium of the Picasso Malaga Museum -the local actors Pablo Puyol and Canco Rodríguez were the innocent hands- was that Casademont Zaragoza, Iberostar Tenerife, Morabanc Andorra or Unicaja, one of them, will be a finalist . A unique opportunity
The tournament will start with perhaps the duel of the largest carats of quarters, two Euroleague teams, the current two-time Barcelona against Valencia Basket (7:00 p.m.). The three duels of this course were for Pesic, Supercopa (71-65), Endesa League (97-94) and Europe (83-77). Days before the tournament (February 5), they will be seen at La Fonteta in European competition.
That same Thursday, 13, then (9:30 p.m.), Real Madrid will see them with the revelation team, the newly promoted RETABet Bilbao by Álex Mumbrú , who won his ticket with a heroic victory on Sunday at the Palau. The 'men in black' have been able to defeat Madrid and Barça this season.
For Friday there are Tenerife-Andorra (7:00 p.m.) and Unicaja-Zaragoza (9:30 p.m.).
