TGB’s victory in the first leg (67-62), Thursday evening at the Quai de l’Adour, may have reshuffled the cards of this double confrontation before the return, this Sunday at 2:30 p.m. in Mont-de-Marsan.

“Today, we are better than them. So if we don’t make it to the final, it will be our fault.” Before the return match, Sunday at 2:30 p.m. in Mont-de-Marsan, François Gomez announces the color. While all season, the Tarbaises had an underdog status stuck to their skin, the TGB coach seemed rather confident before going to the Landes for the second leg of the semi-finals. A change of position both on the state of the two teams and on the atmosphere towards François Mitterrand which promises to be very hostile.

After praising the qualities of the Landes supporters and the pressure that this could put on his players, François Gomez took a new turn. “I don’t think it changes anything. Obviously the public will be present in large numbers to support Basket Landes. But the ball is in our court, we have the cards in hand. The public is important when they push you when they are in your direction, there they will be against us and the players will have to put themselves in their bubbles and that is the best way to keep your head on your shoulders,” warns the Tarbes coach.

A speech which echoes the hot reaction of François Gomez after the victory at the Quai de l’Adour. “It’s good you won, but the work is not finished yet. We are at half-time of this double confrontation. Certainly you won here but there is still a good part to do in Mont-de-Marsan. »

The day after this victory, historic it must be remembered, the Tarbes technician wanted to add nuance to this success. “I would almost say that it was a non-match, because we did not respect the game plan and the tactics that we had written on the board in the locker room. »

A non-match, certainly not, but from there to imagine a better performance from the Tarbaises to François Mitterrand, surely. But in these words, there is no doubt that François Gomez is trying to bring his players down from their clouds. Proof of the confidence displayed by the TGB, the Tarbes coach even had fun imagining letting Basket Landes win. “We can let them win by four points, I have no worries about that. If it’s victory they want, I’ll let them have it, only on the condition that it’s four points or less. »

Beaten during their last trip to the Landes, the Tarbaises could qualify in the event of such a performance. Because in the regulation game, if the TGB and Basket Landes are not able to decide between themselves, this time the Landaises will not be able to save themselves in overtime.
