Ettore Messina’s words on the eve of Olimpia Milano-Alba Berlin

After the fall in Naples, Olimpia Milano is called to react in the Euroleague where it will face Alba Berlin, a match valid for the 18th day, scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 10, at 8 p.m.

The coach of the meneghino club spoke this way in the press conference, “Alba Berlin is a healthy team, as the latest results show, that plays well, organized and deep. We, after three consecutive wins and a series of good tests in the Italian league, have taken a step back. To try to win in Berlin, it will be essential to express a higher quality of play on both sides of the court than in the last two games, limit lost balls and maintain control of rebounds.”

Nicolò Melli also made some statements ahead of the challenge with the Germans: “We face an away team that is back to shine after a difficult period, organized, deep and competitive. We after three wins in a row and the defeat in Athens need to play 40 minutes of great attention and intensity on both sides of the court. I expect a balanced match in which the little things as always in the Euroleague will make the difference.”
