regardless of the results between these two teams.. i think Konomi-sensei had done a smart move here
if he didn't mention anything about Nagoya.. we are all 100% sure that Rikkai will be Seigaku's opponent in finals... no surprise factor. But by outlining that Nagoya is a team of foreign players.. he made us curious.. will Rikkai be able to beat Nagoya...
so at this point... the focus of this manga is not only in Seigaku's match.. but we are all also curious to find out the results of Rikkai match.. more intense.. especially for Rikkai's fans.
btw.. i want Rikkai to win this matchup..
