The upcoming games will be the third and fourth match in the face-to-face confrontation between “Astana” and “Aktobe”, and it will also be the first time that the capital team will play in the city of Aktobe. The first two matches between our guys and Aktobe team took place in Nur Sultan on November 11 and 12. In those two games, “Astana” completely dominated in the game and won two convincing victories — 92:63 and 116:50. Since that time, “Aktobe” had 4 more matches: in the series with “Senigorye” they lost twice, although they struggled hard, and in the series with “Tobol” in the first game the red-and-white frayed Kostanay’s nerves, losing only 6 points, and lost the pot in the second game. Since the start of the season, the team from Aktobe has spent a total of 12 games, winning only 2. Of the 10 defeats, they lost 4 times to “Barsy Atyrau”, but in one game they were close to winning, losing only 4 points, they also lost to «Astana» twice,  to «Sinegorye” and to “Tobol”. As for the victories, they won in a series with “Caspian”.

Leaders of the rivals: Kazakhstan defender Sergey Bormatenkov, who, perhaps, has already become one of the symbols of the team, is also the most effective and efficient player in the team, gaining an average of 11 points per match. At the same time, Sergey is also ahead of teammates in rebounds and steals. Russian forward Vladislav Gusak, whose average performance is 10.7 points per game, also deserves special attention. Kazakh center Gleb Zhukov and Kazakhstani guard Ibrahim Konysov and Aydarkhan Toktarov often play in the starting five. The following Kazakhstan players a guard Temirlan Dzhunusov, a forward Konstantin Neff and a center Konstantin Marzan can also be attributed to the base players.
Changes in the roster: from the previous two-match series, held in Nur-Sultan in mid-November, the roster of our rivals has not changed at all.
