The Take

Two teams currently in the playoff zone will face off in Round 19 when CSKA Moscow hosts FC Bayern Munich in the Russian capital. CSKA arrives from a severe home loss to Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv last week despite 16 points apiece by Will Clyburn and Nando De Colo. It was CSKA's first home loss since Round 8 of last season. Bayern got back to its winning ways with a prestige home win over AX Armani Exchange Olimpia Milan thanks to 18 points apiece by Maodo Lo and Nihad Dedovic.

Earlier this season

This will be the fourth time that these two teams play each other in the EuroLeague. So far, CSKA has dominated the series 3-0. The last time they met was in Round 7 and CSKA managed to pull out a convincing 79-93 road win in Germany led by Cory Higgins's 18 points. For the hosts, Nihad Dedovic and Derrick Williams had 14 points each. Despite winning the rebounding battle 38-33, Bayern got stuck at 3 of 17 from behind the arc and 22 of 31 from the charity line and CSKA took care of the rest thanks to its season-high 22 assists.

Marquee matchup

Will Clyburn and Derrick Williams are players who have been shining consistently for their respective teams this season. Clyburn leads CSKA with 14.8 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.2 steals in 17 games this campaign; Williams had a slow start to the season, but has become one of the main contributors for Bayern. Williams has averaged 13.8 points and 4.1 rebounds off the bench in 17 games.

Keys to victory: CSKA

CSKA boasts the third-best offense in the league and its major firepower will still be its main asset for this game. On paper, CSKA outdoes Bayern on almost every front, especially rebounds (33.7 rpg. to 29.6.), but that did not happen the last time these teams met, so the hosts will have to pay special attention to that.

Keys to victory: Bayern

Bayern seems to have found its rhythm in the competition, but one of the toughest trips in the league awaits the German champs this week, especially after CSKA suffered a home loss already last week. Bayern's main job will be stopping the many resources that the hosts have on offense, which can be a daunting task. The visitors will also have to focus on rebounds to try to even the numbers between the teams, just like they did at home in Round 7

Head Coaches

ITOUDIS, DIMITRIS

"We have to bounce back after our poor performance in the last EuroLeague game. Bayern is a high-quality team which is very ambitious and athletic. They play well this season so we have to raise the level of our performance to our advantage."

Players

"Bayern is a good team, which has size and quality. They have many offensive weapons, they defend well, so I expect the game to be difficult. Hopefully we will have many fans in attendance who will help us on our home court."
