THE TAKE

In a high-profile clash and a battle for the second place, Khimki Moscow Region (4-2) hosts Union Olimpija Ljubljana (4-2). Khimki won their matchup in Ljubljana earlier this season 85-88, but something will have to give in this clash: Khimki has won both of its home games this season, and Olimpija has won all of its road games so far during this campaign. Winner of 5 consecutive games Besiktas Integral Forex Istanbul (5-1) can qualify for the Last 32 with victory at home against Zenit St Petersburg (3-3). Besiktas is led by Chris Lofton, competition’s top scorer with 21.5 per game, while Zenit comes into this one with victories in three of its last four games. The Hungarian champion Szolnoki Olaj (1-5) welcomes VEF Riga (1-5) in a must-win game for both teams. Olaj has lost five in a row after winning the season opener, and Riga has lost four consecutive games after beating Olaj 71-61 at home in Round 2.

Quotes Head Coaches

KURTINAITIS, RIMAS
Khimki Moscow Region
"It will be a very important game and we need this win because our main opponents for the first group place are Olimpija and Besiktas. Mirza Begic left the team not so long ago; he was the real leader of Olimpija, and made a lot of problems to us in the first game. Despite his departure, our opponent is not an easy one as it may seem. For example, they even played better against VEF Riga without Begic. I may say Olimpija is a very disciplined team with good shooters who score three-pointers a lot and fight well on rebounding. They have good basketball background what we may say about Slovenian basketball school in general. I suppose we have advantage individually and have to win.

"Olimpija has a really good coach in Pipan; he coached the Slovenian national team for several years. He is a skilled specialist, has his own strategy and the ability to lift maximum from his players. He cultivates team basketball to his squad and makes anyone follow strong discipline and the very strategy I’ve said before. Pipan controls his players well and it’s very hard to play against his teams."

"We hope to win this game but it will be tough. Olimpija is a young team who plays with great energy. Several days ago their main player Begic left the squad but we can’t relax as there are a lot of other good players, they shoot well, play good defense and run fast. They also have experienced guys like Marinovic. So we have to be concentrated and play all the 40 minutes at the same level to win."
