Team News: Krylia Sovetov
The Krylia Sovetov boss Igor Osinkin has zero fitness worries at all coming into this clash with a fully injury-free squad to choose from.
We think that Perya will probably use a 4-2-3-1 formation, handing starts to Ivan Lomaev, Nikolay Rasskazov, A. Soldatenkov, Ilya Gaponov, Yuri Gorshkov, Fernando Costanza, Dmytro Ivanisenya, Vladislav Shitov, Benjamin Garre, Amar Rahmanovic and Vladimir Pisarskiy.

Lokomotiv Moscow boss Mikhail Galaktionov has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Dmitriy Barinov (Muscle injury) and Stanislav Magkeev (Cruciate ligament tear) will not be playing here. Nair Tiknizyan cannot play in this game through suspension.
We are inclined to think that Loko might begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 lineup, going with Ilya Lantratov, Maksim Nenakhov, Evgeniy Morozov, Lucas Fasson, Ilya Samoshnikov, Dmitri Barinov, Artem Karpukas, Sergey Pinyaev, Maksim Glushenkov, Anton Miranchuk and Artem Dzyuba.
We’ve got the feeling that Lokomotiv Moscow and Krylia Sovetov should both be able to score here although it’s hard to pick a clear winner.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. We’re therefore expecting a close game with a 1-1 score draw at full-time.
