Vasily Karasev: "We must not allow confidence to become arrogance"

Vasily Karasev: "We must not allow confidence to become arrogance"

Tsmoki have shown the high level they can play and that they are a team that created a lot of problems for CSKA Moscow. Minsk play a very strong game. Also waiting for us in are other formidable teams, Locomotiv and Kazan, so we probably have to continue playing well and keeping our focus.

Yes, in recent matches we have defeated other teams with a difference of 20-30 points but the scores hide the fact that they were not easy games. Each game has been difficult and the team has grown accustomed to the busy schedule, the guys have gradually adapted. But the confidence that we have gained in recent games, should not become arrogance.
