Back home from warmth
Second part of our team’s road trip takes place in Nizhny Novgorod. The Army Men went to Volga River banks from Barcelona.

“Nizhny is playing better lately, they found good chemistry and able to score in different ways,” CSKA head coach Dimitris Itoudis said. “Regarding us, we played good game in Barcelona. We have to continue playing the same way, as a team. Nizhny is a very different opponent, so we have to change the chip and get ready for another difficult game.”

CSKA flew to Nizhny with the same roster. Obviously, Dmitry Kulagin will be in the lineup because of foreigners’ limit.
