December 16, 2018 - After the defeat in Las Palmas on Gran Canarias, the fifth in the Euro league, the basketball players of Buducnost Voli turn to their obligations to the ABA League.

The team of Aleksandar Dzikic hosted Cibona Sunday evening (7 p.m.) in the last match of the first part of the regional league competition.

For almost five years, the team from Podgorica have been undefeated in the duel with Cibona that is, in the last eight mutual encounters.

"We are expecting a tough game, and we are playing after two long trips. The Cibona players are very experienced; they have points to their advantage, they play wide and with a lot of isolation. We need to control the rhythm of the match and take advantage of the jump," says Aleksandar Dzikic, who will not be able to count on the injured Nikola Ivanovic and Aleksa Ilic.

On the eve of the Sunday duel, Buducnost is the second in the ABA league with eight victories from 10 matches, while on the ninth place with four wins.

"After a difficult jorney we come across a very unpleasant opponent, they have very experienced players, and we have to impose our rhythm from the beginning of the match. I am sure that we expect a great game and we hope for the best outcome," said the center of Podgorica team Filip Filipovic.
