Partizan will play another regional league classic (against Cibona) in “Aleksandar Nikolić” Sports Hall in the Round 7 of the ABA League.
The Croatian team, same as the Black and Whites, have 3 wins and 3 losses and both teams are hungry for another victory. The Home team will have the crowd by their side and, as it is well-known, the fans are always the sixth player.
“Again, we need Pionir (also known as “Aleksandar Nikolić” Hall) to be sold-out. We are very young and we need help. We are working hard every day and that hard work needs to be put in action, and it is always easier with support. It will be a tough game, they are experienced and we are not. And if we will play their kind of a game, we won’t be on the right track. If we create our play we will have more chance”, said Andrea Trinchieri before the ABA League classic.
Partizan forward, Rade Zagorac enphasises that there are many reasons why the match against the team from Zagreb is important.
“It is an important game for us, and there are many reasons for that. First, to get three wins in raw and that way showed that shock therapy with new coach worked. Second, we have the same score as Cibona, and we would like to pass them. And finally, the third, the victory will help us improve our confidence before we will face two tough opponent away. These few days, we worked hard and, I believe, that we are able to score another win with, for us, important support of our fans”.
