Stefan Jovic played for Crvena Zvezda from 2014 to 2017.

Andrija Gavrilovic worked as Khimki Moscow Region assistant coach from 2009 to 2016.

Rimas Kurtinaitis, Khimki Moscow Region head coach:

“We will play in Serbia in a hot atmosphere. We respect our opponents and Serbian traditions, because their fans always give a huge boost to the team. They changed the coach recently and probably have some problems, but Crvena Zvezda always fights till the end, regardless the name of their opponent. With the return of Kuzmic they started to play more confident. So, we expect a tough game but we are ready for it. Everything will depend on the energy because in a double week it is unknown in what shape the teams will be after first game. In six days, we have to play three games, including our local game against UNICS Kazan on Sunday. The first step we did yesterday against Panathinaikos, now our mission is Belgrade”.

Sergey Karasev, Khimki Moscow Region forward:

“Crvena Zvezda has good players like Gist, Jenkins and Lorenzo Brown. These three make the result for the team. If we are able to play with the same effort and energy like it was yesterday against Panathinaikos, we will have good chances to win on the road”.
