Andrey Maltsev, Khimki Moscow Region interim head coach:
“Milan is angry right now, as they lost a very important game in St Petersburg a couple of days ago. They are one of the leaders of the EuroLeague. They recently won the Italian Cup and now are in a good shape. They are powerfully equipped on all lines, which is very solid even by the standards of the EuroLeague. We have some problems with the squad, but we will fight. Like every team, Milan has some disadvantages that we will try to take advantage of”.
Anton Ponkrashov, Khimki Moscow Region guard:
“Milan is a very serious team, coached by Ettore Messina. This means that they will a priori claim high places and pursue high goals. A few days ago, Milan lost to Zenit on the road, so they will be over-motivated. We need to work on our mistakes and try to improve our game”.
