CSKA Moscow's VTB game against Zielona Gora was another walk in the park for the reigning champs, who crushed their opponents by 105-71 (23-18, 23-19, 26-20, 33-14), a few days before their EuroLeague premiere against AX Armani Exchange Milan on September 30.

After making light work of Tsmoki Minsk in their maiden game in the VTB, the Russian squad did not meet any obstacles against the Polish team, since they were in charge from the first minute and Dimitris Itoudis had the chance to make an extensive rotation towards the end.

Iffe Lundberg, who was playing with Zielona Gora until the middle of the 2020-21 season until signing with CSKA, "filled" his statistics in impressive fashion (12 points, 5 rebounds, 10 assists). The last game between the two teams (in February of this year) ended with a sensational victory of the Poles. The main person responsible for that result was Lundberg, who scored 26 points.

Tornike Sengelia (14 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists in 17') and Daniel Hackett (13 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists in 16') also stood out for the winners, who finished the encounter on 78% two-point shooting.

The game against CSKA was the Polish team's new coach, Oliver Vidin, VTB debut. In early September, Zielona Gora won the Polish Super Cup. Jaroslaw Zyskowski with 14 points and Nemanja Nenadic with 12 were the first scorers for the losing side.
