The main candidates for the leadership, Guadalupe and Dehesa del Conde, have difficult confrontations, unlike some of their rivals
The battle to lead the First Men’s National League continues at a high level, with CBA Guadalupe and Dehesa del Conde Maristas as the teams that have proven to be the strongest so far this season -already in its final stretch- and for whom a victory in this day would place them very comfortable with respect to the rest of the applicants. In the women’s category, Alter Enersun Al-Qázeres will enjoy a double chance away from home to continue imposing distance on their rivals, while Civitas Pacensis and San Antonio will look for a victory at home.
1st Men’s National
The fight for the lead in the Men’s First Division will continue on this fifteenth day of the season, which will start with the match between Almendralejo and Electromerantil Plasencia, with seven and six wins respectively, two teams hunting for the best positions. At the same time, Moraleja will try to maintain his good moment against the almost undefeated Guadalupe, who is looking to be in first position. ADC will have the opportunity to recover a level lost in recent games against Mérida, a team that has shown the most weakness throughout the course. The weekend will close on Sunday with the Badajoz derby between Civitas Pacensis and Dehesa del Conde, in which the visitors will want to assert their first place in the complicated neighboring feud.
The matches are: UB Almendralejo vs. Electromercantil CB Plasencia (Saturday 5, 6:30 p.m. – Pab. Extremadura), AD Moraleja CB vs. CBA Guadalupe (Saturday 5, 6:30 p.m. – Pab. Adolfo Suárez), ADC La Commune Creative vs. FD Mérida (Saturday 5, 8:00 p.m. – Pab. Juan Serrano Macayo), Civitas Pacensis BB vs. Dehesa del Conde Maristas (Sunday 6, 12.00 – Pab. Las Palmeras)
Ribésalat League – 1st National Women (CLM-EXT)
The Primera Femenina of Castilla La Mancha and Extremadura now faces the final stretch of the regular season with the sixteenth and penultimate day, in which Alter Enersun Al-Qázeres will have two commitments. The first will take them to Ciudad Real to face the last classified, Basket Cervantes, a team that is the opposite version of the Extremadura team. The leaders of the competition will take advantage of this trip to the province of La Mancha on Sunday to recover from a delayed match against Grupo76-Alkasar, which has already proven to sell the victory dearly. San Antonio will try to find victory again after several days of drought, despite the fact that they will host Grupo76-Alkasar, a difficult rival for the Cáceres team. For its part, Civitas Pacensis will face Guadalajara Basket in what is expected to be a matchup of great equality between two teams that have the same record (9-6).
The matches are: Clínica Cardiorreal Basket Cervantes vs. Alter Enersun Al-Qázeres Extremadura “B” (Saturday 5, 4:00 p.m. – Puerta de Santa María, Ciudad Real), San Antonio Cáceres Basket vs. CD Grupo76-Alkasar (Saturday 5, 5:00 p.m. – Pab. Juan Serrano Macayo), Civitas Pacensis BB vs. Ferial Plaza Guadalajara Basket (Saturday 5, 6:00 p.m. – Pab. Nuria Cabanillas) and CD Grupo76-Alkasar vs. Alter Enersun Al-Qázeres Extremadura “B” (Sunday 6, 12.00 – Pab. Juan Serrano Macayo)
