Nikola Milutinov (illness) and Janis Strelnieks (hip) will miss the upcoming game against FC Barcelona as CSKA Moscow has announced. Coach Dimitris Itoudis will have to make his plans without two very important members of his rotation.

Especially Milutinov, a marquee summer signing and one of the best centers in Europe, is expected to be one of the stars of the army team and against another title contender, like FC Barcelona, his absence may prove more than crucial.

Meanwhile, CSKA is coming from a home defeat in the VTB United League by Parma in which Toko Shengelia, another marquee summer signing, was missing due to injury.
