Real Madrid are set to take on Baxi Manresa in the Endesa League play-off quarter-finals. The knock-out tie will be the best of three games and will begin at the WiZink Center on Thursday the 30th of May at 9:30pm CEST. The second game comes at the Nou Congost on Sunday the 2nd of June at 9:30pm. Should a third decisive clash be required, the tie will come back to the madridista court on Tuesday 4th of Wednesday 5th of June. The Whites have won both games against the Catalan side this season, who are back in the play-offs 21 years after their last appearance.
It will be the third time these two teams cross paths in a League quarter-final play-off. The two previous ties saw Real Madrid come out on top and qualify for the semi-finals. In the 1993-94 campaign, they won 2-1 and in 1996-97 it was 3-0. Since then, they have met on one other occasion in a title knock-out clash; the semi-finals in 97-98, as the team from Catalonia came out on top before going on to lift the trophy.
