Krasnodar vs Lokomotiv (By: Frantik)
The home team from game to game look worse and worse. The season for the bulls began with a defeat — the team could not stand the pressure from the Kazan squad Kurban Berdyev, losing to Rubin with a score of 1:2. Next-a heavy victory over Ural away in the second round with the same score 2:1. Krasnodar, despite the victory, did not show the game that is expected from the team, missing at the very beginning of the meeting and giving his fans a reason for disappointment. Next-a victory over the tired after the matches of the Europa League Ufa and offensive defeat by Spartak Moscow, which was not without a judicial scandal. In the fifth round, the team shared points with Orenburg, having played in the last minutes of the match.
Lokomotiv Moscow also adds from match to match. The team conceded only 2 goals in the last 5 matches, but did not score too much — 3. However, after a goal drought at the start of the tournament (0 goals in 270 minutes of playing time), the team cheered up. Newcomers of the "red-green" Grzegorz Krychowiak and Fedor Smolov began to lead the team's attack, allowing Lokomotiv Moscow began to pass a good attack. The result-6 points for the last 2 meetings and the difference of scored/missed 3-1.
The engine has a trump card that Krasnodar to kill not. It, of course, about Fedor Smolov — the former leader of attacks of "bulls". Fedor as no one else in the League knows how to work against the defense of Krasnodar. He knows the strengths and weaknesses of each of the defenders, which gives confidence in the final success of Lokomotiv.
On the other hand, Krasnodar has a pair of defenders Shishkin-Yanbayev, who for a long time played for the "red-green". Against Lokomotiv will not play Ari. The forward received a direct red card in the match with Spartak, as a result of which he will miss the match against the club, in which he won the medals of the champion of Russia. On pre-match layouts full advantage on the side of the Lokomotiv.
