Levitec Huesca La Magia is on the verge of relegation, a situation that the club has already assimilated for weeks, but which could become a mathematical reality on Saturday. In the absence of seven days for the end of the regular season in the LEB Oro, the Huescans with colistas to other so many victories of salvation, line that marks the Prat. If they lose on their visit to Oviedo (19.30) they will have nothing to do in the future and the same will happen if they win, but El Prat, which at 5:00 p.m. hosts Almansa, also does so.
“In qualifying, the team is already aware of the situation and therefore our goal is to compete in each game as well as possible and try not to block ourselves thinking about it”, said his coach Carlos Lanau, who expects a complicated duel against an opponent who looks to the ‘play off’. “Oviedo has been competing very well all season, it has personality and rigour”, he affirmed, emphasizing “being intense and dynamic” and pointing out its center Oliver Arteaga in particular in the Asturian ranks.
Levitec, in their previous match, fell at home against Marc Gasol’s Girona 50-85, Javi García, who is already training with Casademont, but still has wrist problems, will once again be out. To it, Sikiras also addswho was precisely the most outstanding against the Catalans despite suffering a shoulder problem that has prevented him from training in recent days.
The Huesca have only achieved three wins throughout the course and one of them was precisely in the visit of Oviedo to the Sports Palace. It was a 73-68 in which the then newcomers Javi García Xavi Rey were essential to knock down the second-placed team. “More than as a reference, it serves as a reference, that Peñas was another Peñas,” said Lanau. Now, the people from Oviedo are sixth and have the stumbling block against Gipuzkoa (79-77) as the last precedent.
