___________________________________________________________________

After the defeat against Apollon and the elimination in Europa League, the situation at Lokomotiv Stadium is very hot.

The big-match v Zenit, in fact, arrives in a difficult moment. 'Railroaders' lost the securities of last season, while a lot of players aren't in form. Kuchuk became predictable and the team is suffering the separation with Boussoufa and Diarra, with the Moroccan that has been declared yesterday in the site of RFPL.

Kasaev in this moment is the best Loko player, while Denisov and Tigorev could return after the misadventure in Europa League. Samedov and Aleksey Miranchuk, instead, are ready to change Maicon and Fernandes, both undertone. As striker, Pavlyuchenko could start after the good performance on Thursday.

In Zenit the situation is completely different. Villas-Boas has built a top team that could fight for any sort of trophy. In this transfers window, 'Bomzhi' have signed Garay and Javi Garcia, two top players, and so far they have won all the matches in this RPL. 15 points, 17 goals scored and 2 suffered: great numbers. 

At Cherkizovo Kuchuk will decide his future. A defeat could force the society to find a new coach, while a win instead could mean a rapprochement. The match is served.
