___________________________________________________________________

Apollon have already arrived in Moscow, where on Thursday will face Loko. The Cypriot club didn't fly with injured Guié, who scored the goal in the home match. Christakis Christoforou at the same time has again Gaston Sangoy, who is probably the best player in the team. 

In the last round of Cypriot Championship, Apollon lost 2-5 against AEK Larnaca. Goals were scored by Papoulis and Robert. Also Loko earned a defeat in Krasnodar.

Kuchuk will have some problems to resolve. First of all the absences of Tigorev and Denisov, who are disqualified. Probably Durica could be adapted as left back, with Pejcinovic in the first XI. The Belarusian midfielder, instead, could be substituted either from Mykhalyk, either from Fernandes. As usual, Kuchuk could choose the more defensive option.

Kasaev is living a very good time, while captain Guilherme couldn't miss such an important game. Tarasov hopes returning after his aches.

The match is going to start at 19.00 Moscow time and will be decisive for both teams to be qualified to Europa League groups. A defeat of 'Railroaders' could change a lot  the situation between club, players and coach.
