In the upcoming Euroleague season Cedevita will play in Group B with CSKA Moscow, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Unicaja Malaga, Alba Berlin and Limoges.
Right after the draw KK Cedevita director Kresimir Novosel, coach Jasmin Repesa and player Luka Babic gave us their impressions.
Kresimir Novosel: “It is a very interesting, attractive and strong group. Our fans will get an opportunity to watch European Champions Maccabi Tel Aviv live in Zagreb, CSKA Moscow are the team with the biggest budget in Europe and all other teams from this group are also very strong. Despite of that, with the help of our fans I think we are able to play against anyone. It would be a tremendous success for our team in case we secure our place in Top 16.”
Jasmin Repesa: “We are a new team in this competition, but our goal is to finish our group as a top four team. We want to play in Top 16 and reaching that goal won’t be easy. We haven’t finished our roster and we must wait to see how the rosters of our opponents will look like right before the start of the new season. All teams in our group are strong. I believe we will play good basketball which will be a good invitation for our fans to visit our games at Basketball Center Drazen Petrovic. It is our obligation to play quality basketball to attract as much fans as possible.”
Luka Babic: “I believe it is a good group for us. CSKA and Maccabi will probably finish atop. We will be supported by full arena when playing against these teams in Zagreb. I think we can play against Unicaja and Alba and at this moment I don’t know much about Limoges. I think we have a chance to reach Top 16, but in order to do so in crucial moments we need to play the best we can.”
