Current 4th place
The start of the season not so easy for our opponent: for the one hand, current 4th place and 4 wins in 6 games. For the other hand, big loss vs league's rookie "Samara" and negative "+/-" index. It's also interesting, that "Pari Nizhniy Novgorod" won only one game at home from three.

The quote
Vasiliy Karasev: "We have tough schedule, we didn't have a chance for day-off after UNICS and started the preparation to "Pari Nizhniy Novgorod". The main goal is to recover. We don't want to complain, all teams have the same terms. I think it's difficult to compare upcoming game and the game during pre-season - "Pari Nizhniy Novgorod" plays little bit different way now. In any case, we are going to battle for the win"
