Xavi Pascual, Zenit BC Head Coach:
My first visit to Almaty brought great pleasure. I was pleasantly surprised by the large number of children in the arena. We took this game very seriously. I think that both in defense and in attack we looked good. There were losses and mistakes, but in general it’s okay. In defense, it would be worth adding, but we are satisfied with the result of the game.
On March 31, Zenit will visit Nizhny Novgorod in the VTB United League.
The next home game of the VTB United League will take place against Lokomotiv-Kuban on 4 April. Tickets on sale at tickets.bc-zenit.com
