SOP Vs SPT Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Sopot look to register their first win of the season when they take on Stargard today
They might have fallen short in their league opener but Trefl Sopot will be more buoyed then downtrodden by that result. The club took last season’s champions Gora all the way to the culminating stages of the fourth quarter with just five points making all the difference in the side’s closely fought 76-71 result.
The performance was one to write home about, a showing which won over the land of the Basket Liga 2020-21 for the fight and character shown by Sopot. It was a display which exulted their stature in the league and showed why they have it in them to emerge as potential candidates for this edition’s glistening trophy.
However, after falling short of the title last season by just 7 points, one which separated them from top spot by 6 places, Sopot will be well aware that they can’t afford any further slipups. Despite us being in only the second game of the marquee season, Sopot will be itching to taste success and accrue its first two points of the season.
Ending in 9th place last season with the two points separating them and Sopot, Stargard got off their new season with a win to their name. The 70-65 success was not easy to come by but the side’s resillinace and vigour saw the side heap the reward of two points at the end of the four quarters.
It’s a win which serves the club well today as it looks to make early inroads in the points tally. However, we envision them being putdown by Sopot’s gruelling defence, one capable of accruing a bevy of steals, blocks and rebounds.
