It should be remembered that Petro de Luanda already faced FAP in the regular phase of the BAL, held in Egypt, having won by 73-60.
On the same day, at 8:30 pm, Zamalek, from Egypt, tries to beat Tunisian Monastir for the other position in the final.
After the victory on Saturday, Brazilian coach José Neto was confident of the path taken by Petro in the competition: "It was an important game because it qualified the team for the semi-final and once again placed Petro de Luanda among the top four teams from Africa. This was an important achievement. The team played very well; 127 points of efficiency, with four players with more than 10 points, 23 assists, I think it shows that collective play can take us very far in this tournament" .
A close fight for a place in the final is now awaited, with Petro 'aiming' for the title.
In the first edition of the competition, which took place last year, Petro was in third position, having been won by the Egyptians Zamalek. The continental event, organized by FIB-Africa, is supported by the North American Basketball League (NBA).
