Coach of Mega, before the match with Cedevita, pointed out that the match in Zagreb is a good opportunity for Megam to see where it is compared to the strongest teams in the league:
– On Saturday we expect a very high quality opponent in Zagreb. After defeat at the start, they started to rise and won against German Alba in Eurocup. We have a good start to the season, but that can not satisfy us and relax us. In order to come up with a chance to fight for victory, we have to play aggressively in the defense and to approach the match with the necessary energy and concentration. Cedevita is a favorite, but in every match we are going for the win and this will be a good opportunity to see where we are compared to one of the strongest teams in the league,

– Cedevita is one of the best teams in the ABA league. This is a real opportunity for us to see where we are against the strongest teams in the league. We need to enter aggressively in the match and keep high rhythm as in the first two matches. If we come to our game and provide maximum, I believe we can come up with a chance to get a big win on the side,
