Jasikevicius: "At this point every game is like a final"

The Barça coach expects a very physical game against Real Madrid and encourages his team to take it with the mentality of a playoff game


Barça faces Real Madrid in a Euroleague match and, despite the recent win over the Whites, there is not an iota of confidence in the Barça team. First of all because of the rival, a whole Real Madrid, but also because there is less and less left to finish the regular phase of the competition: "At this point in the calendar we are already talking about each game being like a playoff game, like a final. You have to face it like this, with the mentality that there is no tomorrow. Hopefully we can play a good game, "said the Lithuanian coach. To do this, he repeated the idea of "keeping up" with the game, especially in intensity and physical display: "Against Madrid it's always a tough game. We also play on their court. We have to be prepared for anything. It's a classic. , you have to be at the height of the game ", settled the Barça coach.

The other Barça protagonist of the previous one was Cory Higgins, MVP of the Cup, who evidently keeps a good memory of his last duel against Madrid. Despite this, he is also betting because it will be a difficult game: "We have good memories of this court, but that is the past. Tomorrow we have a very important game for us. It is always hard to play against Madrid, we must be prepared," he said.

And he agreed with his coach: the key is going to be in the physical display and the intensity that they can print on the game: "We know it will be a fight, you have to match its intensity, be physical and play well on defense. When we do those things normally good things happen, "he explained.
