Andrey Maltsev, Khimki Moscow Region interim head coach:
“Astana is a very serious team that will play at home. They had a series of several unsuccessful games in which they lost, so they intend to rectify the situation as soon as possible. Astana has all the lines packed by foreigners, while there are local players who can support the mood and cause trouble to the opponent. Unfortunately, we have some losses, but we are full of strength and desire to win this game”.
