Word to the coach

Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
As I said after the Gomelsky Cup, Parma has quality and they are a potential playoff team for me. They have shooters, they have creators, so we have to be cautious and motivated, we have to defend them well, we need to pay our full attention. We should not look back at our previous game because Parma was exhausted after being two weeks away from home, we gotta play serious.
