Dusan Ivkovic: “This will be an extremely significant and tough match...”

Preparing to play against the Croatian side Cedevita Zagreb on Thursday, December 3rd on the road at the eighth week match of Euroleague First Round Group B, Anadolu Efes Coach Dusan Ivkovic commented on the upcoming match:

“It will be an extremely important match on Thursday, both for Anadolu Efes and for Cedevita Zagreb. Both teams are in critical positions. We had a three match losing streak, which started with a defeat by Cedevita Zagreb in the third week of this season. That match also started a three match winning streak for Cedevita Zagreb. This will now be an extremely significant and tough match. We are worried about Thomas Heurtel’s injury. It’s still not clear whether he will be able to play. It will be a very difficult and spectacular match...”

Anadolu Efes’s Dario Saric also stated his thoughts: “Cedevita Zagreb is a very good team. This will be our second match against them this season. I played against Cedevita Zagreb before, and I know their players. They are good at team play. If we play like we did in the second quarter of the match against EA Milano or in the second half of the game against İstanbul BŞB, this one against Cedevita Zagreb will be easy. We are currently in an unfavorable position in the group. We have to fight for every remaining match. Our team is built from very talented players and we have to perform our best every match, starting from this match against Cedevita Zagreb...”
