Will the first home defeat against Rostov affect the rest of the season? We hope not. The tomorrow's match against Amkar in the 1/8 of the Russian Cup represents a good opportunity to react and to prepare the Sunday's match vs Kuban' in the best mood. 

In the 1/16, Amkar defeated Spartak Nalchik 0:2 without too many problems thanks to the goals of Jovicic and Balanovich. Both the Serbian and the Belorussian should be included in the starting line-up tomorrow. In fact, Gadzhiev (who has recently celebrated his 70th birthday, congratulations) shouldn't make a big turnover. The 'Permyaki' arrived today in Moscow and, as they've admitted in the last meeting with the fans, they'll do everything they can in order to defeat Lokomotiv and to qualify for the next round. 

The only big change regards the role of goalkeeper. Gadzhiev could give the young Selikhov some rest and Khomich is ready to take his place. In the midfield, instead, Idowu, Shavaev and Komolov could be preferred over Peev, Gol and Ogude. Anene should start instead of Prudnikov and Salugin, who played in the derby against Ural in which Amkar were defeated 3:1. 

Cherevchenko is expected to play with the reserves, considering also the injuries of Corluka, Pejcinovic, Mykhalyk and Tarasov. As happened against Torpedo Armavir, Abaev should replace Guilherme. In the defense, Yanbaev could take the place of Denisov, who has incessantly played so far. The couple of central defenders should be made up by Logashov and Durica. In the midfield, we guess Barinov will play together with N'Dinga because the young Russian midfielder didn't play with the reserves team on Sunday. Grigorjev and Maicon should take the place of Samedov and Kasaev. Skuletic, instead, should be finally included in the starting line-up. 

The only precedent says that Lokomotiv are the favorite team. We can't lose the second game a row. Cherevchenko has to find a solution to the Lokomotiv's problems. This is the right opportunity. We must go as far as possible in the Russian Cup. Other mistakes aren't allowed. 

 Lokomotiv (4-2-3-1)
Shishkin - Logashov  - Durica - Yanbaev
N'Dinga - Barinov
Grigorjev - Al Miranchuk - Maicon
Amkar (4-5-1)
Butko Belorukov - Zaytsev - Zanev 
Idowu - Shavaev - Komolov - Jovicic Balanovich
