Gambrinus Brno coach Jan Bobrovsky has warned his players to expect a battle against MiZo Pecs in their EuroLeague Women play-off clash on Wednesday.
The 2006 champions are set to face the Hungarian-based side in the decisive third-game of their eighth-final play-offs in Brno on Wednesday.
Bobrovsky told www.basket.idnes.cz: "I am sure our players will get this hard situation under control.
"They have played games like this before but play-off games have a special aura and it is hard to play them mentally.
"Everything will be decided by mistakes. There is nothing that can surprise us or them tactically. We know everything about Pecs and they can say the same about us.
"The Hungarian team plays aggressive defence which helped them to win the second game when the referees did not punish many of their fouls. We will not be satisfied with this style of basketball in this game."
MiZo coach Laszlo Ratgeber admits his side are the underdogs but insists they are full of confidence following their stunning 72-56 victory last time out.
"Brno are the favourites at home. They are very strong and an experienced team," he said.
"But we have nothing to lose and that is our advantage. The last victory gave us self-confidence."
