We have very serious opponent ahead of us, CSKA head coach Dimitris Itoudis said. We expect a difficult game. We should respond with our best basketball.

Zenit returned basketball games to the legendary Yubileiny Arena this season. The Army Men recently played here more than 4 years ago, on January 27, 2013.

Past matchups


Zenit remains the only Russian team in the league that never beat the Army Men. CSKA won in all 18 games against Triumph Liubertsy and all five in the newest, official history of the club.
