Quote 

Zenit BC Head Coach Xavier Pascual:

After a difficult trip to Spain, we have to face a complex and close-knit team led by a very good coach. If we want to win, we must overcome not only the very good team of BC Kalev, but also our own fatigue.

Zenit BC forward Igor Volkhin:

As always, we are doing our best. We want to approach this game responsibly. As the coach says, after the defeat, the next game is important. Therefore, we tune in more strongly to this game in order to play it with dignity. I feel great, but after the flights a little heaviness affects. It seems that everyone is healthy, everyone is ready. Kalev is a throwing team, everyone is attacking, everyone is scoring, so here you will need maximum concentration on each.
