El Rojo will receive this Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. Atalaya, who has just beaten Somisa. The nicoleño team has lost three in a row and lost in its last two games playing at home. The injured Nicolás Maffei and Lallana will not be part of the game tonight either.

Belgrano will go for recovery when tonight he hosts Atalaya at 9:30 p.m. in one of the two matches that will be played at the beginning of the sixth date of the CAB Region Division 1 of the Federal Basketball League. El Rojo has three consecutive losses, all three by a narrow margin; and the last two in supplementary. In the “Fortunato Bonelli” he comes from falling with Somisa and Sportmen Unidos so he urgently needs to meet again with the victory against his people. Of course, the Nicoleño team will again suffer significant casualties, because, as happened on Friday in Rosario against Provincial, the injured Nicolás Maffei and Joaquín Lallana will not be in the game. Instead, the 21-year-old pivot from Córdoba could make his debut, Ulises Sangoy, who joined the squad in the last match although he did not make his debut.
Despite the result, Belgrano played a good role against Provincial, highlighting the attacking work of Octavio Lagger, his top scorer with 28 points. In addition, Lucas Núñez continues to perform at a good level, Elías Eterovich contributes with his leadership and impetus, and the youth players Santino Vercelli, Genaro Calcaterra and Ignacio Alimena made valuable contributions. Vercelli had the tough task of replacing Maffei in the driving seat and more than fulfilled his job.
After this duel, Belgrano will be free and, later, on Friday the 11th he will play against Regatas.
For now, today he will have to face Atalaya, a rival who is in tune, after having beaten Somisa in good form by 82 to 60, with an enormous job by Horacio Fascia, a point guard who makes many decisions on offense and who has power the Gol. His small forward Brian Najnudel is also a born goalscorer. In turn, Scalella and Leandro Yanson are two dangerous insiders, who can hurt playing both from behind and in front of the hoop. Against Somisa, Emanuel Rava, who could reappear today, was not part of the game. Atalaya, which is the current champion of the Rosario Association, has also faced Regatas, in this case falling by 70 to 66 on the opening day.
Provincial and Sportmen Unidos will also play today at 7:30 p.m., two of whom are going through good times. Tomorrow Regatas will expose its unbeaten record by visiting Gimnasia at 9:00 pm, in a tough test for Pablo Dastugue’s men, who will face the classic against Somisa on Sunday.
