Not so easy way back to the top of the Euroleague standings lies through Istanbul. Our team went to Marmara sea coast today by Transaero flight to play Efes Pilsen on Thursday.

CSKA active list remains the same as it was in the game won in Kazan on Saturday. Alexander Kaun continues to rehabilitate after knee surgery in the USA, Ramunas Siskauskas practices individually in Moscow – his injured back will be examined on Monday.

“The game is very important for both teams so I expect it to be tough and tight, - CSKA head coach Dusko Vujosevic said. Efes likes to run and has a number of good perimeter players, so they adapted their game to bring more danger from their backcourt. We are in difficult situation: having lost the home game against AJ we have to return some points on the road, so we will try our best to start winning away games in Istanbul.”
