Players Zenit St. Petersburg, completely failed to prove himself in the first half of the match of the European Cup with Khimki, said the head coach of “blue-white-blue” Vasily Karasev.
On Tuesday, the players of “Khimki” beat Zenit in the first leg of the 1/8 finals of the European Cup- 86:84 (26:18, 27:16, 23:32, 10:18).
“Simply disgusting the first two times, there was simply no games. Can’t explain it only mandrage, fear, peenestrom. Without play in the protection, children’s errors, everything went wrong, and not just because we lost 20 points. If Khimki feel the game will be to score all will play aggressive, relaxed. This Euroleague level team, against it so you cannot play,” said Karasev journalists.
“In the first two quarters of the whole team played awful. And error followed by the error. It is pointless to single out anyone. We did not play combinations that wasn’t the playmaker that would put and told what to do,” added Karasev.
The return match will take place on March 11 in Khimki.
