___________________________________________________________________

The amazing victory against Kuban' in the final of Russian Cup will be remembered for years and years, with the fans that have waited these moments since 2007. The Kubok has already arrived in Bakovka, where was welcomed by an open training with a lot of journalists. The atmosphere was warm and both players and staff made some nice photos to share with fans. In particular, captain Guilherme said: "I played as it was the last match in Lokomotiv. I've waited this trophy for eight years. I wasn't able to sleep, I had a lot of adrenaline. We won the Cup and reached the group stage in Europa League. Lokomotiv is a big club that merits to play regularly in European competitions."

Tomorrow, the Kubok also will be present at Cherkizovo for the revenge against Kuban'. Kuchuk's team shouldn't ask anymore to this RPL. Lokomotiv, instead, wants to overcome Spartak, which was defeated by Ufa yesterday (1:2). 

Compared to the match in Astrakhan, Kuban' should change its starting line up. Manolev, Kulik, Khubulov and Baldè could replace Bugaev, Rabiu, Tkachyov and Almeida. 

Cherevchenko, at the same time, also should make a few substitutions. Yanbaev and Skuletic haven't recently played very much, while Mykhalyk could replace Fernandes, who wasn't very convincing. About the tomorrow's game, Guilherme said: "Our season wasn't so lucky. We have to win for our fans. It would be great to win both with Kuban' and Zenit."

Abaev, Corluka and Pavlyuchenko haven't trained in the main group after the victory in Astrakhan, so their presence is in doubt. Probably, the Tajik coach shouldn't risk and could let some players to play more.
