And “Baltika” will host “Wings of the Soviets.”
Today, September 19, three matches in the group stage of the Fonbet Russian Cup will be played. Krasnodar will meet Dynamo, Krylia Sovetov will visit Baltika and Paris NN will host Spartak.
At the moment, Krasnodar and the Muscovites are fighting for the second place in group D, which gives them the right to play in the playoffs of the RPL Path tournament. “Spartak” is still out of reach, so we must solve our problems. By the way, the loser, if Pari NN succeeds in the parallel game, can return to last place. Interestingly, the previous match between Krasnodar and Dynamo in August ended in a spectacle: Marcel Lička’s team won 4:3. Are we expecting something similar now?
So far, Baltika has little success in the Russian Championship, but in the Cup everything is fine – nine points after three rounds. Sergei Ignashevich’s team beat each of their group rivals once and will now face Krylia Sovetov in the second round. And the Samarans are a complete antipode: in the RPL they surprise and enjoy football, but in the Kyrgyz Republic they disappoint: in this tournament so far there are only defeats. It turns out that the meeting could well become a turning point and change seemingly established trends. Also, there are no ties.
What a carnage the teams caused last time! Nizhny not only came back from 1-3 down, but also took the lead: Spartak was saved from the penalty shootout by Quincy Promes, who scored in the penultimate minute of regulation time (5-4). Lightning does not strike twice in the same place and therefore it is not worth waiting for nine goals, but there are many reasons to expect a brilliant match. Sergei Yuran’s team is quite capable of putting on another show in the match against the favorite.
