– Hello, dear fans of football! Welcome to match of the championship of Russia between Moscow “the Locomotive” and “Zenith” from St.-Petersburg!
“Loco” symptoms. The team of Yuri Semin, who just signed a new contract can’t score for three matches. But now the “red-green” we need to score, come what may. Coming on the heels of “Spartak” and CSKA. In the case of their victories and defeat “Loko” it’s close already close. And in the final round at team Semin – uncompromising Tula Arsenal in his field.
“Zenith” has lost chances to win first place. However, getting into the Champions League is the main goal for the team Mancini. I wonder who today will do their job and who will be left with nothing
