After the first match of RPL 2014/2015, Lokomotiv now have to play the first away game, against Arsenal in Tula. 

During last sunday, the men of Alenichev debuted in the maximum Russian league and lost 4-0 v Zenit in front of about 20.000 spectators. Seven days later, for the namesake of most famous England club, there is another big match: at Arsenal Stadium in fact will arrive Lokomotiv.

Arsenal are a young club, which was founded in 1946 but arrived in top football only in 2012, when participated in the Russian Second Division after a lot of years in Amateur League. The coach is Dmitrij Alenichev, who is well known not only in Russia, but also in the rest of Europe thanks to his years in Lokomotiv, Spartak and Porto. All the team is composed by Russian players except Mladen Kascelan, the only foreigner. Most of the players debuted in RPL only a week ago, while the only element with a bit of experience is Filimonov (40), former goalkeeper of Spartak and Russian national team. 

The debut was hard and 'Gunners' now want to redeem the 4 goals suffered. The first XI is a real unknown, the only sure of a place is Filimonov. Attention to Kutjin, the top scorer of last Pervij Divizion. 

Lokomotiv, instead, have some doubts. First of all Kuchuk have to understand the situations of Corluka and Samedov: both missed the debut against Krasnodar. The same speach can be done with Sheshukov, who had a meeting with fans before the match with 'Byki'. Probably the Belarusian coach will confirm the XI that played one week ago. A change could be Kasaev for Tkachyov, with the first that can't wait to play his first official match with red-greens.
