The semifinal series of Russian Championship playoffs moves to Kazan. Today the citys airport met CSKA who is leading the series 2-0.

The team departed to Tatarstan capitol in full strength. Moreover Terence Morris who is unavailable to play in Russian League went to Kazan together with his teammates. The list of players also includes Alexander Kaun who injured his ankle in Game 2. On Monday the center practiced individually and is questionable for Game 3.

It is always difficult to play here in Kazan, - CSKA head coach Ettore Messina said. We know that and we are trying not to think about the margin of our two victories in Moscow. It will be necessary to raise the level of our game even higher to get the third win.
