Los Blancos prevailed by 83-74 (25-21, 16-18, 18-14, 24-21) over the hosts and will face either Baskonia or Valencia in a best-of-five series.

At the same time, Pablo Laso extended his quarter-final winning streak. The Basque tactician has never lost a single quarterfinal series in the ACB League, having won all ten of them. He coached 22 games and won 20.

Gabriel Deck and Guerschon Yabusele led the way for the winning side with 14 and 16 points respectively while Sergio Llull had 11. Yabusele also grabbed seven rebounds.

For Manresa, Ismael Bako and Joe Thomasson logged 16 points each with Chima Moneke adding 11. Bako put on a double-double with 11 rebounds.

That game was also Rafa Martinez's last one in a long and decorated basketball career that spanned over three decades. The veteran guard contributed with five points in ten minutes of playing time for Manresa, the team he played with on three stints for a total of nine years.

Martinez won the EuroCup three times throughout his 24-year career while also adding one Spanish league title. All of his titles came while wearing the jersey of Valencia.

BAXI Manresa: Ismael Bako 16 (6/9 FG, 4/4 FT, 11 REB), Joe Thomasson 16 (5/12 FG, 5/5 FT, 6 REB), Sylvain Francisco 12 (5 AST), Chima Moneke 11 (5 REB, 3 AST).

Real Madrid: Guerschon Yabusele 16 (6/13 FG, 2/2 FT, 7 REB), Gabriel Deck 14 (4/8 FG, 4/4 FT, 4 REB), Sergio Llull 11 (4 AST), Fabien Causeur 10, Rudy Fernandez 9, Adam Hanga 8.
