Like in the first semi-final also in the other one an Euroleague team will meet the Eurocup one although in this duel one is in a much better position. It is true that both teams met only once in the regular part of the season, when Maccabi won, but this time it will have also a massive support of 11.000 fans. Who has more chances? Take a look what coaches and players from other clubs think.
Dražen Brajković, Zagreb head coach: There are no open questions for this game. Maccabi is a clear favourite, not only in this game but of the whole tournament. I simply think it was so dominant this season in ABA League that now it can not play bad in front of its fans. That is why I think the trophy is reserved for Maccabi.
David Simon, Radnički: Maccabi will win, there is no doubt. It play excellent basketball, it has a quality and supports of its fans. Budućnost is good and has already played on a very high level this season but will have a too strong opponent on the other side this time.
Nebojša Bogavac, Hemofarm Stada head-coach: Since Maccabi didn’t qualify for the Euroleague’s Final Four all its plans are now focused on ABA F4 and on winning a title in the regional league. It is a favourite. But Budućnost is not under any pressure, which is why we can expect a good game. I am sure Maccabi will go to the final but Budućnost will not give up since it has nothing to lose.
Fran Pilepić, Široki Wwin: Maccabi proved to be the best team through the whole season. Now the F4 is played in its city and Maccabi definitely is the favourite. Budućnost prefers playing fast, kind of aggressive basketball on the edge of fouls. It will not be under the pressure and that is why it will try to be as close to Maccabi as possible. But there is no doubt Maccabi wants the trophy and has the quality to win it.
