“It will be a very important match for UNICS and CSKA. Rivals breathe down their necks” – Eremin

The next VTB United League match between CSKA And UNICS will be of great importance for both rivals before the playoffs, the assistant to the president of the Kazan club, Honored Coach of Russia, told . Stanislav Eremine .

The match between CSKA and UNICS will take place in Moscow on March 5 and will start at 20:00 (Moscow time). UNICS is in first place in the United League Group A standings, CSKA is second and Zenit is third.

– I think it will be a very important match for both teams. Still, it’s an honor to be in first place, and first place, at least in theory, provides a playoff advantage. In addition, there are teams breathing down your back, who, if you stumble, can push one of the teams. This is worrying for both rivals.

I think CSKA and UNICS are not in 100% shape before the match. This also applies to the game: our match against Lokomotiv on Saturday was difficult and CSKA actually lost to Zenit a few days ago. We and CSKA have injured players. Dmitry Kulagin was injured. I don’t know how much he (gave up). And the Army team has Weir, one of its key players, injured. Of course, such moments worry both teams.

At the very least, we will fight. Of course we want to win and expect success. It cannot be said that this match is completely decisive for the teams – they say, you lose, and that’s it. However, given that the fight for each place in the table is very serious, perhaps the meeting will become decisive. Any misfire by one of the teams can have serious consequences. And the opponents who are now behind us and CSKA can push the teams to less favored places in the playoffs. Nobody wants to lose home advantage,” Eremin told .
