MK: Two pretty similar teams whose coaches do not hide that they prefer to act defensively. And Kurban Berdyev, and Valery Karpin tried to play more aggressive, but to talk about a well-regulated actions in the attack is not necessary. Mentor Kazan, himself until recently head of Rostov, is well aware of the weaknesses of the opponent, and the status of the owner of the field makes the chances of “ruby” to win is even higher. One should not overlook the fact that Kazan is essentially deprived of any tournament motivation, and Rostovites strategically is quite satisfied with a draw.

MK: if I can get on the field leased by the prior in Petrograd Artem Dzyuba and if you can, who will pay for it? Perhaps the most pressing question before the starting whistle. Recall that the cost of participation in this game of Artem, in his own assurances, is in the region of 7 million virtually any, which the film is allegedly ready to pay myself. But from a sporting point of view, the interest of this meeting in a very different — “Zenith” continues to fight for European trips, and to next fall, the team started in the Champions League, not Europa League, you must be above the “Krasnodar” and CSKA.

The gunners after defeat in the semi-finals of the Cup of Russia “Spartak” tournament tasks left, because the sixth place no longer provides participation in the Europa League. So all hope on the film and his enthusiasm. Prediction: 1:1

“MK”: Draw will not accept any one of the rivals, each of which is a desperate struggle for survival. But if the team can expect in the final stages to set any points in the matches against not motivated mainly by opponents, tomentum meetings with direct competitors from the basement of the standings. So if the team of Dmitry Parfyonov will not be able to overcome “Amkar”, the limit of her dreams at the finish line, likely to be transitional games. Prediction: 1:1

A draw will serve a good service “Spartak” and “Zenith”, to catch up with which CSKA and “bulls” in case of loss of points will be difficult.

“Krasnodar” will not be able to count in this match on their main striker Fedor Smolov, the abolition of the unfair “yellow card” which was awaited by all football country. Recall that the striker was booked for simulation in the previous round against Arsenal. During the simulation, which was not. The problem is that this “yellow card” was for Fedor fourth in the championship, which leads to automatic disqualification in the short game. The game with one of the main competitors in the struggle for ligachampion accreditation.

CSKA, judging by recent matches, are clearly on the move. Four goals were scored in the last match, Fedor Chalov, good for vitinho, Musa, and Alexander Golovin laid eyes reputable breeders clubs.

Theoretically, Loko can win the League title after this tour, and to say that the team of Yurii Semin is not powerful enough to beat a strong middle peasant, but the nervousness from the proximity of the title has an impact on the game.
