Betis.Tavares and Campazzo revive Real Madrid
The Endesa League as balsam, two wins without too many surprises against
Movistar Estudiantes (ride) and Coosur Betis
(better in the second half), but the pending duties of this start of the Real Madrid course are, clearly, in Europe.
After falling at the Palau, he never dawned in the Laso era with a 1-4.
The closest thing is 2-5 of the 2015/2016 season, the one after the Ninth.
So that the noble positions do not leave so soon, it is time for immediate reaction.
But the immediate thing is the two fashionable teams in the Euroleague.
This Thursday Bayern and next Friday visit Zalgiris, first and second respectively.
No, it is not the feared Bayern Munich football that amazes the world, but
(ex from Cantú, Unics, Brose Bamberg, Partizán ...) is achieving what the entity has been pursuing for years, rubbing shoulders with the best without complexes.
The Italian coach asks - his father, an American, was the US consul in Milan and his mother is Croatian - not to wake him up after the best start ever for the Bavarians.
Although their showcases do not have much to do with those of the goals, only five Bundesligas and two Cups.
Not only are they his four wins in five games (he only lost on the opening day, in extra time,
against Armani Milan
This is how a team has managed to be the leader of the competition that, however, has not yet started its domestic competition: the Bundesliga starts this weekend.
Lucic, the benchmark
On the second day he passed Alba in Berlin (72-90), then beat Maccabi (82-85) in Tel Aviv and
Fenerbahçe (71-75) in Istanbul with an amazing comeback
(26-50 in the second part).
And last week he knocked down Olympiacos (74-68) in the Audi Dome.
All the meetings have had a common denominator, the wonderful display of Vladimir Lucic.
Above the American signings, the Serbian forward, ex Valencia, shines at 31 years old, finding a precious maturity: he is the second most valued in the Euroleague (22.6), the fifth highest scorer (17.2), with a threatening 65% on triples.
With him, two signings that are curdling with Trinchieri,
Jalen Reynolds (13.4 points and 6.6 rebounds) and Wade Baldwin
, former Olympiacos (13.8 points), the best thief in Europe (2.6 steals).
They lost Greg Monroe and Koponen, among others, but other interesting players have also arrived like JaJuan Johnson, Malcom Thomas, Thomas Bray or Nick Weiler Babb.
"Bayern is a very complete team that has started very well with Trinchieri and for us it is mandatory to make a great effort, both physically and mentally," warns Laso, who lists the threats: "It is a very physical, strong and great team. They have very physically powerful
Lucic, Dedovic and Zipser
. Baldwin is dominating a lot at point guard and there are also very physical people in inside positions like Thomas or Reynolds. "
