Lubomir Minchev: Our first goal is to win
Beroe is set to welcome KK Kumanovo 2009 in the first final game of SIGAL UNIQA Balkan League season 2016/2017. The game is on Tuesday and will start at 18.30 hrs local time and will be broadcast by BNT HD, TV Sitel and SportMedia.tv. Here is what the head coach of Beroe - Lubomir Minchev had to say little bit more than 24 hours before the match:
"Nikolay Nikolov has pain in the heel and didn′t practice on Sunday. I think that Tencho Tenchev will not recover for the game and we′ll be without him.
In our last match against Lukoil Academic we didn′t look good and we didn′t look as a team enough motivated to win which worries me. However this is a final and I hope that the motivation will be different and we′ll be focused.
At the moment Kumanovo is playing free and without any pressure. The team was left by two key players and now they have nothing to lose. However they have short rotation which is our advantage. They are playing with just seven men so I hope we can capitalize on that.
I can′t say what kind of result will be good. I can′t talk about a win as well before we′ve achieved it. The first and main thing is to get the win. Then if we manage to built some advantage will be plus for us.
I think the gym will be full. From what I′m hearing there is a lot of interest for the game and I think we′ll have the support from our fans."
