Victories for Oliveirense and Benfica. Tomorrow Barça and Barcelos will try to overturn the standing

311

All the eyes will be focused on the games of Barcelos and Barcelona, which will try to overturn the standing. They need only a victory to qualify against, respectively to Porto and Benfica, two of the most convincing teams in the first match of this first phase of Euroleague. The three spanish teams, Noia, Reus and Liceo greet the dream to reach the Euroleague Semifinals because the standing condemns all three to the elimination. Only six teams now are still hooked to the qualification, but Porto, Sporting, Oliveirense and Benfica have the best chance to reach the last phase. Today the best game of the second matchday was Noia-Barcelos, which ended with an impressive tie (5-5). 10 goals in this exciting game, where the young Manruba scores again two goals and for Barcelos, the answer was from Miguel Roca (three goals) :For the Portugueses, the only chance to reach the first final four will be to beat Porto. Oliveirense, instead, has shown one the best performance in this competition, defeating Reus for 5 to 1, thanks to the goals of the two argentine Martinez and Ferruccio (both scored 2 goals). Benfica won for 7-2 against Liceo and made a big step for the qualification. Three the goals for Diogo Rafael but the “eagle” team showed on the rink one of the best hockey in the competition.
