Barcelona's coach Xavi Pascual, who recently renewed his contract with the club until 2011 praise Montepaschi Siena claiming they are a clear Final Four material team.
Pascual said in the press conference: "Montepaschi is a clear candidate to be in Paris in May, that's why, to beat them, we will have to see our best defnsive version. With the change of Kaukenas by David Hawkins I think Siena is more solid in defense now. They are maintaining the main group of players of last season, and one of their main features is the fast ball circulation. We are healthy but we will have two very important games in less than two days, that's why you have to be extra careful. But we must do everything in our hands, This game is probably the most important so far in the season, it can define the final options in our group. It is important but not decisive yet."
While Barcelona player Roger Grimau stated: "Siena is probably the most complicated opponent in our group. In the last times we have played there we have had a really hard time. They are a team that plays real well becaus etheir core has remained the same for a few years now. After this we'll meet Unicaja in the Spanish League, so we can't wait to start this season against two great teams. And we want to start it well by beating Montepaschi on the road."
