Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Nizhny Novgorod vs CSKA

Nizhny Novgorod

With a balance of 11/7, the team is now in fifth place in the VTB United League. Cool, but there is a feeling that this is the ceiling. Basketball players from Nizhny Novgorod will never enter the top four. CSKA, UNICS, Zenit and MBA are clubs of a completely different level.

In any case, NN has something to be proud of. They feel confident in the playoff zone and have a positive point difference. Allen Brion scores a little less than 17 points per game this season, he is in the TOP-5 according to these indicators. Roberson Justin is sixth in the League in assists per game (about 5.5). Baburin Evgeniy is the best interception basketball player of the tournament (2.3).

At the same time, NN does not have good rebounding basketball players. In a match against CSKA, this could be a fatal moment. The opponent has great snipers who rarely need second chances, but if they are given them when it is required, then everything can end extremely sadly.

Nizhny Novgorod has played ten away matches in the 2022/23 VTB United League. They got six wins. The result is not the best, but it is not bad. In part, this is how you can characterize the whole game of the club now.


Muscovites are ready to return to the throne of the VTB United League. Last season they did not become champions and it seems that they made the right conclusions. Now CSKA is in the tournament on a series of 19 positive results in a row. So far, the “army team” has not a single defeat in the championship. This is an incredible result and already a record in the competition. The club is on a great track and we need to try to develop success further. CSKA has the best attack and point difference in the championship, and the third defense.

From time to time, the coaching staff gives the main basketball players a rest, but this does not affect the results in any way. It turns out that the Muscovites are head and shoulders above their opponents in the tournament. Will the best of the best take the floor against HH? It's hard to say, but objectively it's not too necessary.

The Swede, gaining almost 17 points per meeting, is in fourth place in this dispute this season. Milutinov is ninth here (just over 15 points per game). Alexey is also second in assists (7.4), and Nikola is the best rebounding basketball player of the season (8.7). This is if you briefly glance at the leaders of CSKA.
