The game of Russian Super Cup demonstrated how Lokomotiv well-prepared the new season. Tomorrow, 'Railroaders' will start the new RPL against Mordoviya in Saransk. 

However, as it was reported by many Russian media, the match couldn't have been played in Moscow as the pitch at Lokomotiv Stadium isn't ready. Therefore, Lokomotiv is going to play two away games in a row (Saransk and Makhachkala). 

First of all, we should say that the Saransk's club was totally revolutionized. Yurij Syomin left the team for Anzhi and many players followed the legendary coach's action. Ebecilio flew to Makhachkala with him, while Vasin returned to CSKA and Kochenkov signed for Lokomotiv. At the same time, many players joined the squad with the new coach: Andrey Gordeev - Revishvili from Tosno,Tishkin from Ufa, Rykov and Stevanovic from Torpedo, Shipitsin from Krasnodar.

Regarding the starting line-up, it's very difficult to guess Gordeev's choices. Generally speaking, we can say that former Sibir' coach loves playing an offensive football. As a consequence, we can expect many technical and skilled players on the pitch. 

Lokomotiv, instead, is in trouble due the new foreign players limit (at least 5 Russian players on the pitch). Tarasov and Niasse are both disqualified, therefore Cherevchenko can't play with the same XI used in Saint Petersburg for the Russian Super Cup. Shishkin should replace Tarasov, while Skuletic or Grigorjev could substitute the Senegalese striker. Samedov is i doubt and should miss the game due a small injury. 

We can surely say that it'll be a tough match because Mordoviya is a tricky team. Let's see if Cherevchenko will be able to confirm the good performance offered against Zenit.
