It will now be too difficult for Lokomotiv-Kuban to defeat Zenit in the bronze medal series, believes Elevich

“Zenith” achieved a good advantage in the series for the bronze medals of the United League with Lokomotiv-Kuban, it will be difficult for Krasnodar to stop the opponent, the honored coach of Russia told Sergei Elevich.

On Monday, Zenit won at home against Lokomotiv in the second match of the series (99:96) and led with a score of 2-0. The series for bronze goes up to three victories.

— From what I saw in these matches, I can say that it will now be too difficult for Lokomotiv to defeat Zenit in this series. Here, of course, the injuries of the players and the disqualification of White are felt. It seems to me that Zenit is unlikely to lose. No matter how events develop in this series, even if there is a fifth match, Zenit will play the last match at home. Nevertheless, the Lokomotiv players are great, they fight, they fight. The only surprise is why Sekulic does not now include in his squad some of the basketball players who played successfully throughout the season. It is clear that Lokomotiv is a strong team, but it seems to me that Zenit will win bronze in the end,” Elevich told .

The third match of the series will take place on May 30 in Krasnodar.
