Mega Bemax coach Dejan Milojevic, upon arriving in Nis, emphasized that surprises are always possible in the Cup:
– Cup is a competition in which every team has its chance and where we have seen surprises in the past. In one game and smaller teams stand a chance against the favorites. Sloboda plays great in KLS and we certainly won’t underestimate them. I believe that the audience will have the opportunity to enjoy the matches and we are always additionally motivated to show up in a good light in Nis, where in 2016 we won our first and so far only trophy in the Cup. If we manage to impose our rhythm in the game, I believe we will justify the role of favorites and reach the semi-finals. Let’s go step by step, so we’ll see how far we can go,
Mega Bemax guard Luka Asceric pointed out that it will be necessary for Mega gain control of the game from the start:
– We are playing against a very inconvenient team Sloboda that is at the top of KLS and they will certainly want to show themselves in the best possible light in the Cup. We have to be very careful and enter the match with the right energy. We will try with aggressive defense to regain control of the game from the start. We do not run away from the role of favorites, but we must not relax because the space for errors is narrowed in a competition like this. If we are at our level, I believe we will win and reach the semifinals,
