Preview
With advantage and focus
Our team arrived to Prague by Rossiya Airlines charter flight to try to take the third victory in the VTB League quarterfinals against Nymburk.

13 players boarded Airbus aircraft. Joel Freeland (shoulder) stayed in Moscow, Anton Astapkovich and Mikhail Kulagin went to Samara to help CSKA-2 in its quest for VTB Youth League medals.

“We go to Prague to play against a team that was very competitive in first two games of the series,” CSKA head coach Dimitris Itoudis said. “We know the difficulties in front of us and I hope that we will be able to improve our game in many aspects.”

“Relatility” connection


Joel Freeland and Jiri Welsch played for Unicaja in 2009-10 season.
