Tomorrow the basketball "Monaco" will hold the first quarterfinal match of the Champions League
Tomorrow the basketball "Monaco" will hold the first quarterfinal match of the Champions League against the Italian "Dynamo Sassari". On the eve of the meeting, the president of the Monegasques Sergey Dyadechko shared his expectations of this confrontation:

- To understand what the excitement is causing the quarter finals, it is enough to say that all tickets for the first match in Monaco, and the return game, which will take place in a week in Sardinia, have already been sold out. We are waiting for a very exciting battle - do not regard it as a stereotyped phrase, just look at the track record of the starting pair of "great" Italians: Dushno Savanovich spent the previous two years at the Munich "Bavaria", Gani Laval has behind him the experience of performances in Panathinaikos. And do not forget. That last year "Sassari" was a member of the Euroleague.

"Sassari" was heavily included in the season, but then, after changing several players, he found his rhythm. The team uses a lot of zone pressure and zone protection, it is very aggressively defending "in paint". I watched their match against "Milan" - Laval began the game with two blocks of block shots. In general, our front line will not be easy.

Unfortunately, we have problems with the composition - because of the injury, Jamal Shuler, who in the Saturday match against the "Flight" injured the gastrocnemius muscle, will not be able to reach the parquet floor. His absence - a huge team loss, because in the confrontation with AEK, he was our main option in the attack.
