The Hereda San Pablo Burgos CB Miraflores will seek this Tuesday to seal its classification for the second phase of the Basketball Champions League 20-21 in the match that will measure Belgian Filou Oostende from 6:30 p.m., at the Burgos Coliseum. In the event of a victory, which would be the fourth in five games in Group H, the team led by Joan Peñarroya would mathematically achieve its goal.
The people of Burgos will have until the last moment the doubt of the Cuban pivot Jasiel Rivero, who is still in the process of recovering from the bursitis of his left shoulder that prevented him from playing last Saturday in Seville against Coosur Real Betis; But who will continue to be available will be the last signing of Hereda San Pablo, Belarusian Max Salash, who performed well in the match against the Andalusian team.
“He is working very well, he has a very good mentality and we are very happy with the work he is doing, so I’m sure it will be from the game,” says Penarroya, coach of the Burgos.
Inherit San Pablo Burgos knows even so that it will play a match against a complicated rival like Oostende, who already beat them in the inaugural match of the current Basketball Champions League held in Belgium (99-98), the only triumph achieved to date by the players led by Dario Gjergja.
“The match played in Ostend was a game with too much scoring, and that ended up hurting us,” recalls Joan Peñarroya, who about Filou Oostende points out that it is a team “that has a lot of verticality in its players on the outside line, who are very fast and that they do not rule out any option to go against it ”.
Precisely the perimeter, where the Belgians have 37.2% shooting effectiveness, will be one of the main focuses that Hereda San Pablo Burgos will try to contain from the defense. “They already showed us at home. They have players with the ability to score, so we will have to be attentive to those marks. In addition, we will have to be solid one by one and not let them play as comfortable as in the Ostend match.
Under this premise, Hereda San Pablo Burgos will try to prevent Filou Oostende from going to a high score marker like the one that occurred in Belgium. “We are a team that performs quite well in high scores, but it would be difficult to win the game if they score so many points again,” concludes the coach of the Burgos team, Joan Peñarroya.
