This weekend was the last weekend before a near 3 month winter break in the Russian Premier League. With 10 games in the season remaining, Lokomotiv hold an 8 point advantage over both Zenit and Spartak. Loko have been the pleasant surprise of the league all season so far and were only predicted to challenge for a top 5 spot this season, now going into the final 10 games of the season, an 8 point advantage over their rivals means that they are now favourites to claim their first title win since the 2004 season. The first two games Loko face after Christmas could be crucial in determining whether or not they win the title, those games are Spartak at home and Ural away, 4 or 6 points gained from those 2 games by Loko and i reckon the title is theirs. It would be a remarkable achievement having spent around just EUR 5 million on new players compared to Zenit's EUR 87 million and i would love them to do it
Hey! thank you so much for wishing!
So great forgotten feeling of leadership
It's so important to notice that our club didn't spend a lot of time for attack-players transfers:
Farfan - free agent
Manuel Fernandes - free agent
Eder - on loan
Miranchuks brothers - from the youth academy.
Winter vacation is coming and the first part of Russian league was incredible for Loko. The next game will vs Spartak Moscow. If we wont lose this game we have a great chance for.... TOP-5
Also we have 2 games in February vs Nicce FC. Ballotelli, Sneider and Dante are moving to Moscow
Well after a long near 3 month break, the RFPL resumes this weekend with Round 21 out of 30
Fixtures are as follows
Anzhi v Rubin Kazan
CSKA Moscow v Ural
Zenit St Petersburg v Amkar Perm
Krasnodar v Rostov
SKA Khabarovsk v Tosno
Ufa v Dinamo Moscow
Lokomotiv Moscow v Spartak Moscow
Arsenal Tula v Ahkmat Grozny
Game of the week is Loko v Spartak. Reports state that this game will be Lokos highest ever grossing game and a sell out is expected. If Loko win they virtually eliminate Spartak from the Championship race, a Spartak win throws the championship race wide open again.
Interesting transfers made during winter break include
Artyom Dyzuba and Ivan Novoseltsev to Arsenal Tula on loan from Zenit
Habib Maiga to Arsenal Tula on loan from St Etienne
Konstantin Rausch to Dinamo Moscow from Cologne
Nikola Maksimovic to Spartak on loan from Napoli
Anton Zabalotny to Zenit from Tosno
Elmir Naibullin to Zenit from Rubin Kazan.
Hey Ricardo! Nice to read you.
I'm going to the Derby. We have to "not-lose". There're a lot of ways we can win the Premier League but the first step of every scenarium is 3 or 1 point(-s) in game vs Spartak.
Our leaders haven't got any injures, besides Farfan. He had small leg injury but everything is OK, as Yuriy Semin said.
Go Loko Go! hehe
Enjoy the game on Sunday Artem!
I agree with you that the minimum scenario for Loko here is a draw, at least then Spartak cannot gain points on you this weekend and after this game against Spartak, you have a lot of matches in next 5/6 weeks which you have a good chance to earn 3 points.
Hope you get a good result, i want to see Loko win the league as it would mean 4 different winners of Russian league in last 4 seasons, which is a good sign of a competitive league.
Really looking forward to return of Russian league, it has only been a 3 month break, but honestly it has felt like a 9/10 month break!
So, RPL resumed.
Lokomotiv-Spartak 0:0. This snowing draw is something that many people predict.
It's not so bad bad for us. It's "+7" in the north-west of Moscow and it's mean Loko is the leader at least till Day 23.
The next step for the Title is Ural Yekaterinburg on Monday, March 12 and Atletico today evening.
Hope our guys will be able to bring 3 points from Yekaterinburg.
Show must go on (C)
Round 22 RFPL Results
Amkar 0-2 Arsenal Tula
Ufa 3-2 Anzhi
Dinamo Moscow 0-0 Krasnodar
Tosno 0-1 Rubin Kazan
Rostov 0-0 Zenit St Petersburg
Akhmat 0-3 CSKA Moscow
Spartak Moscow 1-0 SKA Khabarovsk
Ural 0-2 Lokomotiv Moscow.
Game of the week was Ufa v Anzhi, superb second half of that game, 5 goals and end-to-end drama and action.
Lokomotiv still looking good for the championship, those 2 games after winter against Spartak at home and Ural away were difficult obstacles but Lokomotiv showed excellent mental strength to get 4 points out of 6 from those 2 games. They now have in theory an easier run of games over the next 4/5 rounds. With an 8 point gap, it is looking difficult for anyone to catch them now.
Vedran Corluka coming back from injury is such a positive too, him and Kvirkvelia together in central defence will surely see them to the championship.
4 games till finish.
Positions on the TOP after 26 games days:
1. Lokomotiv 56
2. Spartak 50
3. Zenit 48
4. CSKA 48
5. Krasnodar 47
Day 27: Lokomotiv - Ufa
Day 28: Krasnodar - Lokomotiv
Day 29: Lokomotiv - Zenit
Day 30: Arsenal - Lokomotiv
We are so close to CL Group Stage and there're just 6 points till the first League Title since 2004. Lokomotiv should make a dream reality - deserves that the dream become true
3 points. Just 3 points within 3 games for Title.
Lokomotiv is going to win RPL. Away game vs Krasnodar might be Gold for our guys.
Hope, Believe, Wait.
Krasnodar - Lokomotiv
The Train is moving to theTitle
They did it! Oh, God, they did really do it!
Lokomotiv is Russian Premier League 17/18 Champion!
There're emotions worth living for till 6:00 on this video
That's what i will tell about to my grandchildren
It's our 3rd Title since USSR breaking in 1991.
We're coming back to Champions League Group Stage after 14 (!!!) years.
It's just FANTASTIC!
Who are you top players - any Russians we ought to look out for in the World cup?
Congratulations Artem on the championship! A deserved one this season for Loko as they have been the best and most consistent side in the league this season. Enjoy celebrating the championship win!
Will be interesting to see how Loko do next season in both the Champions League and RFPL. You have a Big 5 in Russian Football at the moment consisting of Loko, CSKA, Spartak, Zenit and Krasnodar, and Loko are the 4th different winners of the Championship in 4 years, highlighting that the league is competitive.
There're few intersting young Russian players like
- Miranchuks brothers (Lokomotiv)
- Alexander Golovin (CSKA, but rumour has it about his transfer to Arsenal)
- Daler Kuzyaev (young defensive mid, Zenit)
- Alexander Tashaev (Dinamo Moscow)
- Roman Zobnin (Spartak Moscow)
But i'm sure that our National Team will not be able to show interesting football, cause our coach, Stanislav Cherchesov is a piece of shit
Congrats mate.. King Eder at it again!!
Russian football has a lot of problems.
We have just few clubs that have money in Russia (Moscow clubs, Zenit, Krasnodar, Rubin and few other). Other clubs are finance by region goverment and hasn't got money from tickets, merch or any other sources of income.
Every season nearly 5-8 clubs dies in Russia.
Just for example: FNL (Russian analogue of Championship) consist of 20 teams. Last 5 - is on relegation.
These 5 clubs are substituted by 5 winners of PFL (Analogue of League 1. Divided into 5 divisions. Every winner promotes to FNL). After this season the whole 5 last team of FNL... stays on FNL for the next season because 2 winners of PFL rejected of participation on FNL next season and 3 clubs of FNL refused to participate in the League next season.
Today Russian football is on the way of shock therapy: finance-weak clubs dies year-by-year and i hope there will be small amount of clubs in Russia but every single of them will have some perspectives.
P.S. Sorry for my mistakes in English
