SUNDAY, APRIL 10. 19.30. ROSTOV – LOKOMOTIV MOSCOW
Rostov left for the off-season in 14th place in the RPL table, there were no transfers in the winter, and everything indicated that the yellow-blues would face a tough fight for survival. Later, almost all legionnaires left the club, but Valery Karpin returned to save the team, who gave the team a new breath. Rostov performs with varying success in the spring part of the championship, but even this allowed them to climb to 11th place.
Lokomotiv, after a coaching reshuffle and several losses, quickly adapted to the new conditions. After the winter break, the team played four matches in the Russian Championship, three of which ended in victories, and only a goal by Mario Fernandez from CSKA in the 91st minute prevented the Railwaymen from maintaining an unbeaten streak.
In the match between themselves, most often Lokomotiv and Rostov do not hesitate to play on the attack, which results in a lot of goals scored. It should be the same on this tour. The highlight of this match is added by the fact that the Muscovites went to Rostov by train, which will not have the best effect on their physical condition.
