The national teams break is over, while the second half of the season in RPL is going to start. Lokomotiv tomorrow will face Anzhi in a match that comes first the one against Sporting: this week will be crucial for the 'Railroaders'. 

Corluka, Tarasov and Kasaev have returned training with the main group and they should be ready to take part in the match. Niasse and N'Dinga came back from Africa only on Wednesday. Samedov, instead, was the first player to return from the national teams even before Shishkin. Pejcinovic has been training individually and unlikely he'll start against Anzhi. Furthermore, Durica has recently provided some solid performance that can let the Serbian defender to recover without problems. Jan was also the captain of Slovakia against Iceland. 

Anzhi has got some injured players too. Maevski could return playing only in 2016, while Serderov has still got some physical problems. The only two players involved during the national teams break were Lazic and Moutari, and they will be fit for the Saturday's match. Eschenko, Tigiev and Leonardo (all of the them didn't play in Saransk) have recovered from their injuries and could take part in the game. 

Agalarov, who took the place of Semin, has earned only 2 point in 6 matches, demonstrating how the Anzhi's problems aren't related with the head coach. The same Agalarov shouldn't be considered as a real head coach. He trained only Anzhi-2 in his career and even with not very good results. Furthermore, the Anzhi's defender Kamil is his younger brother. The atmosphere in the team is not so good and it'b very tough for them to avoid the relegation. 

The match against Lokomotiv will be crucial as the last ones in 2015. Anzhi should earn as more points as possible in order to prepare the 2016 in the best way. Loko should pay attention to them because they'll certainly want to take a revenge for the defeat they suffered in Makhachkala. It must be noted that Anzhi won its only match of the season in RPL in Moscow against Spartak, so we mustn't undervalue the opponent. 

Cherevchenko said: "I've watched the first game of Russia. Samedov was good. I've also a given a look to the the match between Congo and Ethiopia. Skuletic, instead, scored his first goal for Serbia. When a team has got many players called by the national teams, this a prestige for the club. I hope the break will be good for us. Regarding the younger players, Oganesyan attends each game of the reserves. Let's see who could be called for the first team."

Kolomeytsev, instead, affirmed: "The real Lokomotiv was the one against Zenit not the one that was defeated in Krasnodar. I prefer playing back to the striker, but I'm used to play in many positions. I expected a call from the Russia national team, now I'll continue working and trying to demonstrate my value. Anzhi has got many problems in the defense this season, there isn't a teamwork."

Kick off tomorrow at 17:00 CET at Lokomotiv Stadium.
