Casic of Spanish basketball in the second semifinal of the final phase of the Endesa League (20:00, Come on). Two Euroleague teams meet to grab a place in the final. Valencia has shown during the first phase that it is a solid team that has overcome the obstacles that the competition has been proposing in a mega-matched group.
