Today afternoon was the time for the Hungarian “El Classico” between Telekom Veszprém and MOL-Pick Szeged. Last season the team from Szeged defeated Veszprém on their home court in the last match snatching the Hungarian title after a long period of dominance from Veszprém’s side.

Since then a lot of things happened at both clubs, Szeged got new players (Canellas, Maqueda, Hennigman, Kasparek, Allilovic), trying to build a new team and adapt the newcomers. They managed the task successfully as they won all of their matches both in CL and in the domestic league.

At Veszprém there is a different wave right now as they lost several matches, both in CL and domestic league (!) and the club sacked the previous head coach, Ljubomir Vranjes had to leave and a new headcoach got the job. David Davis was very positive and hopefull at his arrival, two weeks ago, but he has a lot of work to do in order to have the team he wants to train.

Today the two teams played a close first half, but in the second half, Szeged was better in every aspect of the game as their opponents, defeating clearly their biggest rivals from the Hungarian League.
