After the opening two games of the 2019 ABA 2 Finals, Sixt Primorska have a significant advantage against MZT Skopje Aerodrom. The boys from Koper have won both games at home court and have therefore taken the lead in this series – 2:0. It means that Sixt Primorska now need just one more win to finish the job and clinch the precious trophy… However, this time they won’t have the help of their fans.

The 2019 ABA 2 Finals are now moving to Skopje, where MZT will try to tie the score in this series. Game 3 is scheduled for Thursday evening and if MZT manage to win it, then Game 4 will be played at the same place on Friday evening.

What is interesting to mention about MZT’s home court is that this team have won 11 out of 12 games played in their gym in the ongoing season. But, guess who was the only team to take points from Jane Sandanski Hall? It was Sixt Primorska, who triumphed at this court in the 2nd part of the 2018/19 ABA 2 regular season by 78:77.

Will MZT tie the score in this series and force Game 5 in Koper, or will Sixt Primorska become the 2018/19 ABA 2 champions already in Skopje? We are going to find out the answer in the following days.

Only one thing is certain - everything is ready for another ABA 2 spectacle.
