PRE-GAME QUOTES

Dusko Ivanovic, BC Khimki head coach:

“It will be tough as we had a VTB League game on Sunday and yesterday had a recovery practice. We’ll have only one practice but it’s a typical situation. I think we’ll be ready to play against FC Bayern Munich, a very strong team. They are very athletic and play good transition. They do it really well on the inside plays and have many systems to play inside. Maybe this is the key for the game. We don’t have time to look behind. We look into future and have our goals”.

Nobel Boungou-Colo, BC Khimki forward:

“I think it will be a hard game for us because we’ll do it on the road. We lost in the VTB League and it was an away play, too. We need to be more focused, as EuroCup is an important tournament for us. We have a chance to get some good points if we go there serious. FC Bayern Munich is one of the best teams in Germany. Last season they played in the EuroLeague and it is a team that wants to compete at a high level, like Khimki. The game will be serious for both teams. We need to take this win”.
