Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on CSKA vs UNICS


Muscovites have a lot of problems this season, which have not yet been fully resolved. CSKA is always considered one of the most dangerous teams in the Euroleague, and at the moment, the "soldiers" are in this tournament only in fifth place (14/9), and there is a high probability of going down a little.

In the VTB United League, the capital club is now in third position (9/3). This result is also quite unexpected, since the "soldiers" in Russia have been the undisputed leader of basketball for many years. The icing on the cake of CSKA's difficulties is Itoudis' coronavirus disease. The lack of a team coach on the bench during games is bad, plus it can turn into an outbreak in the camp of the club, which is even worse. The last match of the team was missed due to injuries: Shengelia, Voigtmann, Bolomboy and Khomenko.


Kazanians practically zeroed out in the summer. They changed the coach, and after that the leaders left the team. During the holidays, almost a new team was built. Risky, but the plan worked. Now UNICS is in first place in the VTB United League (10/2) and seventh in the Euroleague (13/10). The results, in principle, are comparable to the achievements of CSKA, but the clubs' budgets are completely different.

It turns out that happiness is not in money, and Kazan people are an excellent personification of this thesis. Kannan has recovered from the injury, which is positive news for UNICS as the team has a problem with roster depth.

History of the confrontation

The teams have met three times this season. First they crossed paths in the VTB United League. It was at the beginning of November 2021 in Kazan. In that match, the hosts of the site won with a score of 69:64. Then UNICS consolidated its success by winning in Moscow in the Euroleague regular season (mid-December 2021) - 88:67. A little later, the "soldiers" took revenge in Kazan in the second leg of the VTB League (end of January 2022), winning with a score of 86:75. Previously, the pair had a five-match winning streak of Muscovites.
