RM vs MAN Dream11: The Liga Endesa league is moving into the Playoffs mode and it will be a fun affair. In the Quarter-Finals, Real Madrid will host the Manresa. Real Madrid finished second whereas the Manresa finished in the seventh spot. Real Madrid just lost their Euro Basket Final to Anadolu Efes in a riveting 57:58 affair. Can they take the momentum to the Quarter Finals?
The Quarter Finals leg is here and there is no doubt that the top three teams will be at least backed to move to the Semis. Real Madrid will enter as the clear-cut favorites in this game and there is no doubt that they will be also slated as the tournament favorites alongside Barcelona. Real Madrid’s performance has been terrific and their experience has been great too.
Madrid’s scoring has been evenly balanced and there is no clear enforcer which means that they are loaded from the starting lineup to bench with Vincent Poirier and Walter Tavares bringing a lot of toughness in the middle. On the other hand, The two-guard, wing combination of Joe Thomasson and Chima Moneke has been effective, both scoring around 15 regularly. The Manresa squad is deep too with players like Sylvain Francisco and Luke Maye.
However, defensively, the Madrid does look more powerful than Manresa but the latter can pull up some surprises. Apart from that, Manresa has been a bit vulnerable against elite teams and I believe Madrid surely has the edge here.
