  • Sergio Llull's brilliance consigned Unicaja to a 71-68 defeat in Madrid on Wednesday night

Unicaja showed no signs of being overwhelmed as they headed to the capital for the first of a possible five semi-final ties against Real Madrid. On Wednesday night, only a superb performance from the league’s stand-out player, Sergio Llull, stood between the two sides as Los Blancos registered a narrow 71-68 win. The sides meet again in Madrid tonight at 8.30pm before the return match in Malaga on Sunday. If the tie is still in the balance (2-1), there will be a fourth game on Tuesday, with a possible fifth on Thursday.
