As a first conclusion, some pleasant news: the best signing of this start of the season is the full recovery of Álex Abrines, who scored 19 points.

Koeman's Barcelona debuted this Saturday in a friendly against Nástic under the curiosity of seeing how the new Barça project would start, with the reconciled Messi already on the pitch. But he was not the only Barça that this weekend had a new coach. In Tenerife, the basketball team opened its official season in the Super Cup with Sarunas Jasikevicius on the bench. The Lithuanian coach has inherited from Svetislav Pesic a star group, led by Nikola Mirotic, with a luxury reinforcement: Nick Calathes. If the squad was already fearsome in the previous campaign, with the signing of the Greek-American it is much more intimidating. And that the team is not yet fully molded, waiting for NBA discards, in the atypical deadlines this year, to replace the departure of veteran Ante Tomic, who has crossed the sidewalk to put on the Joventut shirt. Come what may, the horizon of this Barça can only be one: win everything and reconquer Europe. This Sunday he has the opportunity to lift the Super Cup, which he has not won since 2015..

Jasikevicius' Barça started in the semifinals against a tough obstacle, Baskonia, in a rematch of the League final two and a half months later. The Catalan team won, not without trouble: 68-72. As a first conclusion, some pleasant news: the best signing of this start of the season is the full recovery of Álex Abrines, who scored 19 points. Good opening of parenthood. If to that you add the 18 valuation of a solidarity Mirotic, the vision of Calathes and the decisive blow from Davies to Henry, among other details, the Barça de Saras begins to carburete. This is only just beginning, though. Also for Dusko Ivanovic's Baskonia. This Sunday he will play the final against Real Madrid, the eternal rival. A Classic to inaugurate the course. Jasikevicius' first challenge of many.
