Barça Regal switch their focus to the final stretch of the regular season this evening and will be putting the disappointment of the Euroleague Final Four as they make a final effort to finish off the regular season. With two games left, Barça need two wins and this evening, in a game which was postponed because of the team’s Euroleague semi-final, they face Lagun Aro who have already been relegated.
Coach Xavi Pascual continues to suffer with injury problems, with Navarro (ankle) joining the missing Mickeal and Jawai on the list for the game and B team youngsters Eriksson and Mbaye drafted in – with one player having to miss out from the squad who have travelled to Donosti.
Over recent seasons, Barça Regal have shown themselves more than capable of overcoming such difficulties and tonight they will again need to call on their pride and character as their busty season comes to an end.
Lagun on their way out
Lagun Aro will be saying farewell to the Lliga Endesa at their home court, as they have already been relegated after a difficult season, but they will be doing so without one of their main stars, the North American forward Qyntel Woods.
