Crossing the Line

print version

ROSGOSSTRAKH Russian Football Championship MD 15 matches will be held in the period between 25 and 27 November. The tournament is in its middle now and it will be possible to make the first conclusions after the end of the first round.

It is clear that  Spartak , which has got ahead of Zenit, is the winner of the first part of the season. However there are still three matchdays before the break in the Championship, so the issue of the top position for the  vacations is still open.

MD 15 programme will kick-off on Friday with the match between Ufa and Orenburg. The club from Ufa still has not had any home wins – this is the only club in the Premier League. Orenburg does not know any joy of away wins, but there are some teams like that – Krasnodar, Rostov, Tom and Arsenal also have not had any wins beyond their own stadia. So the upcoming game will be very interesting for the fans.

On Saturday whose who love football will see four matches. Amkar will be hosting Arsenal in the morning. The club from Perm lost to Spartak  at the very end in the previous matchday game and now it wants to revenge in front of its supporters. The club from Tula was losing over the recent three matches, and the only win in the season was in the beginning of August. In order to get out of the tournament table bottom, the team of Sergey Kiryakov needs to gain points. However it will be difficult to do that in Perm – over six matches played Amkar won 4 times and made two draws. Besides, the team of Gadzhi Gadzhiev is the only one, which has not conceded goals in home matches.

PFC CSKA is hosting Rubin in Moscow. These teams has a long history of being opponents.  But the latest three games the team of Leonid Slutskiy won with clean sheets. Dzagoev returned to the team in PFC CSKA, and it will facilitate the uneasy situation of the team. The Army team returned to the third line of the table and continue to chase Spartak and Zenit. So losing points will make the task to compete for the title more difficult for them.

Lokomotiv is hosting Ural also in Moscow. The club from the capital does not please its supporters with many wins, but it is too early to give up – as there are 16 more matchdays waiting ahead and the players of Yury Semin still can improve their tournament position. The same goes to Ural, which is still in the play-off zone.

The central match of the MD will take place in Grozny, where local Terek will be hosting Spartak. Traditionally it is very difficult for the Championship leaders to play in Grozny – the home team has fantastic spirit there. So the team of Massimo Carrera will have a challenge there. Especially, taking into consideration the fact  that one of the team leaders – Ze Luis – will have to miss this game due to his injury. Besides Terek is competing for the place among the top three. So the performance is expected to be very interesting.

On Sunday the match of principle in Samara will start the programme. Krylia Sovetov will be hosting Tom. The club from Samara so far occupies the bottom line of the tournament table, but one win can noticeably improve its position. Tom is only one point ahead. So this match will become a real battle.

After its triumph in beating Bayern in UCL Rostov is hosting Anji. Traditionally the club from Rostov is very dangerous at home – over seven matches they won six times and made one draw. Anji compete for a place among the top eight, so this match will also bring a lot of thrilling emotions to the fans.

The super match in Krasnodar will wrap-up the MD 15. Krasnodar is hosting Zenit. The home team was a little bit slow at the start of the season, but now they are getting closer and closer to the leaders. The main scorer of the team Smolov recovered. Zenit has enough problems with the squad. Dzyuba has just returned, but Shatov has got injured. It is very important for Zenit not to allow Spartak to make the gap bigger. So in case the Red-Whites succeed in Grozny, the club from St.Petersburg will have to play to win.
