But if the head coach of CSKA Viktor Gancharenko defeat in the Cup does not threaten, under the steering of “Dynamo” Yuri Kalytvyntsev chair wobbled. Rumor has it that in the near future it can take place Rashid Rakhimov. However, the management of “Dynamo” denies these rumors.
The upcoming match CSKA is a favorite: the team more balanced than the Dynamo, the results of recent meetings in the Champions League and the domestic League set up on positive lad.
