Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Lokomotiv-Kuban vs PARMA


The official start of the season turned out to be blurry. In their first match in the VTB United League, the “railroad” team lost heavily to UNICS on the road (73:91), but there were no signs of trouble. In the 2023 VTB United League Super Cup, which ended the other day, Loko reached the final in excellent style and looked great there, although they lost to Zenit.

In the match against Kazan, the team seemed to be replaced. The Krasnodar team started this fight with the following lineup: Yemchenko, Morgan, White, Uzinsky, Sherbenev. It cannot be said that the southerners failed the match, but they played mediocrely. The only person to praise here is Okaro White, who scored 18 points and added five rebounds. The rest looked sluggish. The opponent's basketball players had a great time joining the game from the bench. Loko did not have this.

There is a feeling that the “locomotives” slept through the start of the official games. There is no doubt that they have a great squad, which contains top-notch masters, but it was in the match with UNICS that they were not ready. It’s not a fact that they will recover before the fifth of October, although anything can happen.


The team is included in the new season of the VTB United League only in the match against Loko, which has already managed to warm up with the Kazan team, although not very successfully, but in any case it was an official match.

What is the current state of PARMA? The team played five friendly matches in August and September. In them, she lost twice to CSKA, once each to UNICS and Samara, and defeated Uralmash. For the holidays, all this is normal, but everyone loves to win, which means that there is reason to assume that now the Perm team is not in ideal shape.

During the summer break, the club released ten basketball players at once. During the same period, he signed six new players. Of interest here is the arrival of Stanislav Ilnitsky from UNICS to the team. Plus, it's interesting to see what B.J. Johnson will show. It was taken from the Spanish Betis. In the last Spanish Championship, the guy played 31 matches, spending an average of 25+ minutes on the floor in each of them. It seems that this is a new player for PARMA’s core, just like the aforementioned Ilnitsky.
