CSKA Moscow 2017/18 away - Bibras Natcho #66 (Champions League)

Match worn long sleeve CSKA Moscow 2017/18 away shirt, worn by Israeli midfielder Bibras Natcho #66 in the 2-1 away win vs. FC Basel on October 31, 2017 in Basel. Unwashed and dirty, even still has a patch of grass on the back of the shirt. Bibras played 90 minutes and assisted the equalizing goal (1-1) to Dzagoev, and was substituted in added time. Bibras personally gave me the shirt after the match and even signed it (though barely visible in the photo). This is the shirt he wore in the first half, as he changed to a fresh shirt at half time.

This was Natcho's last season of his four-season spell with CSKA Moscow. He contributed with 5 goals and 7 assists in 44 appearances in all competitions, including 4 appearances (2 assists) in the Champions League and playing in all 6 Europa League knockout stage matches, as CSKA reached the quarter-final and finished 2nd place in the league, narrowing missing out on the league title. In total, he made 142 appearances for CSKA, scoring 28 goals and providing 24 assists in all competitions.

Probably the most colorful shirt in my collection - bright orange with contrasting dark blue. What's unusual is that up until this season (2017/18), CSKA has always played with the English version of their sponsor - ROSSETI - in European matches, instead of the Russian version, РОССЕТИ. But this season they decided to use the Russian version for some reason.

I also have Natcho's match issued/worn away shirt from the Europa League Round of 16 match vs. Lyon at home and a match issued/worn third shirt from the league this season, completing a perfect set of each of the three kits and each of the three major competitions played in in the 2017/18 season.
