On Thursday at Megasport our team will face Enisey...
The opponent is at the bottom of the standings, but flashed bright numbers in the previous game - against the outsider Minsk. Drazen Anzulovic's team has updated the league's historical records for rebounds (64) and points allowed (36). By the way, the last achievement on points allowed belonged to CSKA (37) and was established in the away game with Azovmash Mariupol back in 2012.
The Red-Blues lost Semyon Antonov due to an Achilles injury in Saratov, and therefore they were preparing for the game shorthanded. On Tuesday, the team practiced in Krylatskoye, and on Wednesday CSKA returned to Megasport.
WORD TO COACH
Emil Rajkovic, CSKA head coach:
We need to make another step in our progress, we need to lift our shape up. Enisey is a team that needs you to be focused and serious. We must follow our game plan and go for our goals.
