CSKA hosts Turkish “brewers”
In the 4th round of Euroleague regular season CSKA will host Efes Pilsen Istanbul in Moscow.

Despite the fact that our team used expanded roster during the practice on Tuesday (Matjaz Smodis and junior team guard Maxim Zakharov also participated in the session) Ettore Messina do not plan to use Smodis and injured J R Holden in the game against Efes. Victor Keyru is questionable for the game.

The opponents arrived to Moscow on Tuesday in the afternoon and practiced in USH CSKA in the evening. They will miss Croatian center Mario Kasun who had a surgery on his hand in the end of October.

Ettore Messina:

“Though Efes Pilsen has lost against Panionios in previous game they can win on any given night. They have very good shooters with Smith, Thornton and Vujanic, so they are very dangerous from outside. They just need time to become the better team. We still play without Holden and Smodis and we expect another tough game”.
