Pre-game breakdown

Word to the coach


Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
We play three home games this week, including against two EuroLeague opponents. Zenit is a new team, they have injuries, but we also have problems, and most of the teams are. At the same time, we remember that Zenit even playing shorthanded they fought and won the game in St.Petersburg. So it is a dangerous opponent, we expect to play a serious game.
