Today, Lokomotiv has flown to Ekaterinburg for the game against Ural. The 'Railroaders' have earned seven points in the first three RPL's weeks together with Spartak. At the same time, the 'Bumblebees' are at the 8th place in the ranking, which demonstrated how the Goncharenko's team is knit.

During the last round, Loko got only a draw in the derby against Dinamo after a very tough match. Also Ural earned only a point as Lutsenko scored the 1:1 in the final minutes of the match in Saransk. 

The last precedent says that Lokomotiv should take a revenge for the defeat in Tyumen. Mykhalyk scored a tragic own goal, while Smolov was the protagonist of the best season in his career. However, the situation is completely different now. The Ural's president Ivanov appointed Viktor Goncharenko as Head Coach, while Smolov left Ekaterinburg. Bozovic left Moscow too and Cherevchenko was promoted after years as assistant. 

Generally speaking, Ural has played a great football so far under the Belorussian coach. In particular, I think that Goncharenko shouldn't change the line-up that played vs Zenit, although the defeat for 1:4, and drew vs Mordoviya. Zhevnov and Podberyozkin are doubtful as they trained individually during the week. Therefore, the young Arapov should be confirmed. The only ballot is in attack, where in our opinion Dorozhkin is the favorite instead of Burmistrov. 

Lokomotiv has finally recovered Ilya Abaev, who trained with the main group yesterday. Durica and Grigorjev, instead, have continued training individually. Cherevchenko has got now a wide range of players to choice. Both Boussoufa and Miranchuk weren't convincing against Dinamo, however the 20 years old could be included in the line-up due the limit. In fact, in our opinion, N'Dinga will make his debut in the starting XI. In the yesterday's meeting with the journalists, Cherevchenko said: "N'Dinga is ready to play the 90 minutes. There isn't any problem on his adaptation especially because he played in the European football." He also added that: "Ural is a strong team. Every Goncharenko's squad is good. He took BATE to the Champions League's group round. Kuban' was good. Ural too. I've seen their first three games this season and I liked all of them. Even the defeat against Zenit."

In the starting line-up, there should be also Alan Kasaev, who was named by the fans the best player of July. The second was Vedran Corluka, while the third one Petar Skuletic. The last one should be confirmed as striker although Niasse is going to return after the disqualification. 

The kick off will be at the new SKB-Arena. There was a sold out against Zenit. Let's hope there will be the same atmosphere tomorrow.
