Lokomotiv played 6 matches with Lapochkin as referee: 3 victories, 2 draws and a defeat. Goals difference: 9-6.

The race to Europe continues in Cherkizovo. The match against Rubin in Kubok Rossii was the first game at Lokomotiv Stadium in 2015, now it's the turn of RPL. 'Railroaders' will play v Arsenal Tula, that as Rostov is fighting to remain in RPL.

A few months ago, Loko won in Tula and the match (which will be always remember for the beautiful goal of Fernandes) was really hard for the team coached by Kuchuk. Tomorrow, the story will probably be the same. Alenichev's XI must get at least a point and they will come to Moscow for a victory. Although in the last round they lost in Kazan' 1:0, they also demonstrated that they can make trouble to each team in RPL. The're a very experienced squad with good individualities. 

In this moment, Arsenal is 15th and their last victory was against Rostov in the last round of 2014. Alenichev will probably face Lokomotiv without Filimonov and Maloyan: both are injured.

Bozovic, instead, has to renounce to Abaev, Pejcinovic and Tigorev. In particular, the Montenegrin coach said: "Lokomotiv has always the highest tasks. We want to win Russian Cup and finish in the top three in RPL. We wait our many fans at the Stadium. I remember the game v Torpedo, it'd be great to have always this support."

The starting line-up should be similar to the Rostov one. Denisov, Kasaev and Boussoufa are fully recovered and probably the first two will start from the first minute. Skuletic, instead, is confirmed as striker.

'Railroaders' want to win, Arsenal plays a nice football, while weather will be good: Lokomotiv Stadium is ready to host the game.
