Lokomotiv-Kuban defender Shcherbenev explained what he sees as the team’s advantage over CSKA in the upcoming United League match

Lokomotiv-Kuban I will try to impose CSKA play hard and do not allow your opponents to show their basketball in the next match of the VTB United League, the Krasnodar defender told Alexander Shcherbenev .

Lokomotiv will host CSKA in the VTB United League match in Krasnodar on January 13. The game will start at 2:30 p.m. (Moscow time). The army team leads the championship standings, Loko is fourth.

— At CSKA, there is always an attitude: the maximum. The opponent is in first place in the rankings and is playing well. But in principle, we have now won seven matches in a row. Loko is also on the rise. So I hope that the local fans will support us and that thanks to them we can win.

— Loko didn’t get the Army team to the United League finals last year and won against them this season. Do you think that CSKA is perhaps under some kind of psychological pressure before matches with you?

— It’s better to ask them. Yes, we won the last three matches against them. We beat them in tense finals and it went to overtime. Luck was on our side at the end of the match. Even if it has to be earned. But in any case, we have a general idea of ​​​​how to play against CSKA and how to defeat them. We must approach the match with the greatest fighting spirit and prove that the victories in previous matches were not a fluke. We must continue in the same spirit.

— What do you think is your advantage over the army?

— I think of youth and aggressive defense. We will force the opponent to play hard and try not to let them show their basketball. I hope it will bring results,” Shcherbenev told .

Last season, the Krasnodar team defeated CSKA in the semi-finals of the United League playoffs (4-3), and this season they beat the “red and blue” in the quarter-finals of the Super Cup and in the first round of the first stage of the United League regular season.
