The crushing defeat of Lokomotiv from St. Petersburg Zenit in the previous round of the Russian Premier League (RPL) can affect the team both positively and negatively. This was stated to RBC Sport by the former coach of Lokomotiv and the Russian national team Yuri Semin.

“Defeat sometimes affects both positively and negatively. There is such a wonderful expression: “The strong are resurrected, and the weak perish.” Everything will depend on the preparation of the team after the defeat from Zenit, the absence of Barinov, Zhemaletdinov and Fasson will not be a problem for Lokomotiv. I expect interesting football from the upcoming game. A stunning stadium with a magnificent field has been built in Krasnodar, so it will be interesting and beautiful to watch the match,” Semin said.

Seven fans received terms for a fight after the match “Rostov” – “Lokomotiv”

In the last round, Lokomotiv lost devastatingly to Zenit at the Gazprom Arena (0:5). Krasnodar, with the help of two penalties, won the first victory of the season in the match with Ural in Yekaterinburg (3:1).

Lukas Fasson, Maxim Nenakhov and Rifat Zhemaletdinov will not take part in the match on August 6 as part of the Red-Greens due to an injury. Dmitry Barinov will miss the match due to a red card.

After three rounds, the “railroad” are in 14th place in the Premier League table with two points, the “bulls” are in 9th place (4 points).
