Here we go: Lokomotiv will make his debut in 2015 against Rubin in Russian Cup. A match that is important for a lot of reasons. During the camps in Turkey and Spain, 'Railroaders' had some inconstant performance, despite the victory of Marbella Cup. Every player that was interviewed said that the team is ready to play the first game of the year. Bozovic confirmed that the win of Russian Cup is a priority both for him and society. In particular, the Montenegrin coach said: "Kubok Rossii is underrated in Russia. If you win a trophy, you'll make the season a success." 

However, Rubin has a strong squad and so the match will be tough. In this transfers window they kept all their best players and they have also signed an interesting defender (Cotugno), who comes from Uruguay. In the camps, although Bilyaletdinov had tried a great number of line-ups, he should confirm the XI that made a great first part of the season. Brazilian midfielder Carlos Eduardo and Kanunnikov are in doubt, so they could be replaced by Croatian forward Marko Livaja and Dyadyun.

Lokomotiv, on the other hand, had a bit more transfers. N'Doye flew to England, while Serbian striker Petar Skuletic arrived to Cherkizovo. Logashov and Tarasov, instead, returned from their injuries and could represent a good alternatives on the pitch. The only ballot is for the role of forward: Niasse is the favorite. 

The match will start at 20:00 (Moscow Time) to encourage fans to come to the Stadium. Let's hope in a good attendance and support of fans: the game will be certainly interesting.
