On Saturday 28th November from 7 pm Mega Leks will host Slovenian Krka in Sremska Mitrovica, within the match of the 12th round of ABA league. Dejan Milojevic players will have a chance to look for third win in a row and eighth triumph in the last 10 games in the ABA league. In the last round Mega after the great last quarter won in Ljubljana against Olimpija with 89:99 while Krka beat Cibona with 90:86.
In the match against Krka is expected return of Jaramaz and Djokovic who did not play in Stozice because of injury. Mega Leks from the beginning of the ABA league was not complete in any match because of injuries, and only four players who played all the matches so far are Luwawu-Cabarrot, Jankovic, Nikolic and Simeunovic. In this match will not play a long time injured captain Rade Zagorac. Coach of Mega Leks Dejan Milojevic said that the players do their best to compensate for the absences of injured:
“Jaramaz’s first practice was on Thursday, Simic received a swerving hit, but I believe that they will both be ready. We train with the players who are healthy and we are trying not to think about the injuries but to do our best to make up for absences. I’m glad that in the past players took advantage of the opportunity they received because you are not strong as a team as much as it is the best player but how good the 12th player in the rotation is”,
Milojevic said and continued:
“Krka plays good, has 6 wins in the league and they are our competitors for a play-off so this is a very important match. They raised their form but I believe that everything in our hands and with a good defense we can win”,
Mega Leks after the 11th round is at the second place in the league with 8 wins and 3 losses while Krka is at 5th place with a score of 6-5. In ABA league Mega so far played four matches against Krka and the series 3-1 in favour of a team of Dejan Milojevic. The last meeting was played in the 22nd round of last season when the Mega in Sremska Mitrovica celebrated with 81:67.
Djordje Simeunovic stressed the importance of the match with Krka:
“After an extremely important victory in Stozice against Olimpija, we have a chance to triumph against Krka and to increase the difference from another competitor for the playoffs. In case of the desired outcome on Saturday, we’re going to 3 winn differences to the team from Novo Mesto, and otherwis, we will make ourselves complicated situation. It is very important to correct the mistakes of the match with Olimpia and that from the start we enter the match aggressively and with more energy. We know what awaits us, will certainly have tough match on Saturday but I believe in our new victory”,
