Euroleague 2022/2023: Day 12 poster
Real Madrid – AS Monaco (Thursday 21:00)
Le Rocher is on a little cloud. Sasa Obradovic’s men couldn’t have dreamed of better preparation ahead of their trip to Madrid, with nearly twenty points ahead of national rivals ASVEL in the principality on Tuesday (97-78). With ten wins in twelve league games, the Monegasques are enjoying a very good wave of confidence despite some performances that could turn in their favor on the European stage.
The Monegasques, who have the same record as their opponents on the evening, have started their European campaign very well with eight wins and just three defeats, including a particularly frustrating three points against Istanbul Fenerbahce just two weeks ago after a fantastic last-quarter comeback. .
If the Monegasque’s attack has been fairly regular since the beginning of the season, with regular players including Mike James, Jordan Lloyd or Donatas Motiejunas scoring, Team Roca’s defense is still a pity at times due to the irregularity of the players’ switches. The defensive system of Sasa Obradovic’s men as Donta Hall. With injury-free full-backs allowing the Monegasque coach to make a vital rotation for a long-term top-of-the-table appearance in the Euroleague, it will take a very high-quality performance to make Real Madrid pay in their own room. .
Real Madrid, who have won eight in a row in all competitions and six in the Euroleague, clearly show their status in the competition. Big wins at Fenerbahce to reduce the horror of this start to the Euroleague season, Chus Mateo seems to have mastered a very complex rhythm to follow the men. Madrid, who are certain to beat Valencia this weekend thanks to another very good performance from Dzanan Musa, can also rely on quality ‘Big Men’ including Walter Samuel Tavares or Frenchman Vincent Poirier.
Player to watch: Adrien Moerman (AS Monaco)
At the heart of a crazy calendar, Team Roca can count on a key player: Adrien Moerman. The new part of this ambitious Monegasque team, who were passed by FC Barcelona and Anadolu Efes before joining the rock last September, needed some time to adapt. Not yet expected to score as much as Mike James, who has shone since the beginning of the season, he will be very important in terms of experience and approach in this match against one of the biggest players in Europe. teams.
