Barcelona head coach Svetislav Pesic spoke with the media ahead of the first game agaist Anadolu Efes tonight (17/04) and referred to his team’s mental preparation.

“We are going to play in an extremely hostile environment, against a team that knows how to use the support of their fans. We don’t feel pressure, we want victory and we know how to get to victory.

We are not nervous, we only have tension that is present, but as part of concentration on our game plan,” the experienced coach said.

The first two games will be played at the Sinan Erdem Dome on Wednesday (17/04) and Friday (19/04).
