After the loss at Nizhny our team found itself in unusual situation of the elimination game...
Back to the wall


The last time the Army Team was pressed with their backs to the wall was back in 2014. In those postseason it happened twice: first, the red-and-blues needed the fifth game at home to defeat Panathinaikos in the Euroleague, then, in the VTB League, everyone was surprised by Lokomotiv-Kuban, that won the first two games of the quarterfinal series in Moscow, and CSKA had to win three in a row to advance to the next round.

Same players are available for the coaching staff. Nikola Milutinov and Joel Bolomboy continue to recover after injuries. Janis Strelnieks is not on the VTB United League roster.


Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:

This game is like a final. It's a tie series, and they play tough. We shot the ball pretty poor, from threes and free throws, and we are not going to be like that. We are determined and decisive, we know what we have to do and we are going to do it tomorrow.

Наш ЦСКА лучше всех как всегда. Обожаю ставить ставки на эту команду. Никогда практически не подводили. Хочу новую стратегию одну попробовать сейчас. На https://press-bet.com/ букмекерские конторы нашел в которых без паспорта можно ставить и выводить. Это мне как раз таки и нужно было.
