The Barça coach, Sarunas Jasikevicius, asked his players for “ambition” to face this Sunday’s ‘Clásico’ in the Endesa League, which takes place from 6:30 p.m. at the WiZink Center, and assured that “it is getting more and more difficult “to be surprised after so many clashes between the two.

“We have played many times against them, we know their weapons and they know ours. It is increasingly difficult to surprise each other and always in these games I say that you have to start with a lot of intensity, with a cool head and then play a basketball good”, analyzed the technician culé.

“Then, the one who wins will have to surpass the other by playing good basketball, but first of all, they must not surpass us in ambition, in balls 50-50, in rebounds and in all these little details”, added the Lithuanian before facing the third ‘ Classic’ of the season.

On the other hand, Jasikevicius confirmed that Nikola Mirotic has entered the call after having overcome the coronavirus. “Mirotic has tested negative, he has trained a little this Saturday in the only training session we’ve had after Kazan. I don’t know… he’s going to travel with us and we’ll see how he feels and if he can give us something or not,” he said. .

For his part, Barça player Brandon Davies said that the Whites are “really strong this season”. “They always have been, but this year after losing the Super Cup we know what stuff they are made of. We hope to play a good game and get the victory,” said the American.
