The team of Petro have been moralized for this match, given the double victory in the National Championship, at the weekend, one against their arch-rival 1º de Agosto, 89-81, unlike the police club, who recorded two defeats, being one to the surprising Progresso do Sambizanga (71-91).

Due to this motivation, Petro de Luanda have everything to preserve the advantage obtained in the first leg match (79-76), while Interclub, if they want to move forward, they will have to win for more than three points.
