In the fourth round of the AdmiralBet ABA league, players of Partizan NIS expect a duel against the only team that, along with the black and whites, recorded a maximum of three victories in the three introductory rounds of the regional league. On Friday, October 15, the basketball center "Drazen Petrovic" will be the place where another Classic of the region will be played. The duel between Cibona and Partizan NIS is on the program from 7 pm, with a live broadcast on TV Arena Sport.
The day before, the black and whites from Belgrade are leaving for Zagreb, and before tomorrow's visit, the coach of Partizan NIS, Zeljko Obradovic, says:
"Cibona and Partizan are undefeated in three rounds. What we had the opportunity to see during the preparatory tournament in Opatija, in the game against Cibona, is that it is a very young team that plays aggressive basketball and they showed quality in the first three rounds. We are getting ready and we will try to play the best we can, having in mind the preparatory match we played against them at the tournament in Opatija. It can be seen that they have extremely good chemistry in the team, it can be seen that they know what they want at all times. Of course, that is the merit of their coach and all those young players who play with great desire, and it is up to us to prepare and play the best possible game during two more trainings ", Obradović pointed out.
Partizan NIS defender Uros Trifunovic expects a difficult match in Zagreb, but he believes in the victory of the black and whites.
"Cibona is a very young team, they are even a little younger than us. A very demanding match awaits us on both sides of the field, both in attack and defense. During the preseason we played against them and lost. However, from then until today, we have grown a lot as a team, although we are still improving our form. Cibona has a score of 3: 0 and it is definitely a team that can win at any time in the ABA league, but we are going in Zagreb to win ", said Trifunović.
After the Classic in Zagreb, only one undefeated team will remain alone at the top of the ABA league!
