The VTB League season starts for our team in Klaipeda, Lithuania.

"That's an opening game in VTB League for us and therefore it is important", - CSKA head coach Ettore Messina said. "We continue to improve on our practices and I think we were able to recover after difficult trip to Vladivostok. Our only problem is that we miss Sasha Kaun. Still in the game with Neptunas we have to face quick centers and guards so we should demonstrate good team game both on defense and offense".

Army men flew to Lithuania by Transaero flight which took the team to Palanga, closest international airport. The team had a practice in the afternoon.

14 players boarded the plane. Alexander Kaun continues his rehabilitation after virus infection. Alexander Gudumak represents the junior team in Klaipeda.
