Famous football expert Eugene Lovchev commented on the performance of domestic clubs - "Rubin and FC Krasnodar in the Europa League. Taking into account the opinion Lovchev, they showed great football ahead of the match with the Moscow "Spartak".
"Ruby" in a match of the third qualifying round of the Europa League defeated the Austrian "Storm". "The game failed, like swings, it is essential that the arbitrator did not do wrong. All the same, and a penalty in our favour given, and the player masters removed. I note Portnyagin - Yes, it's there from time to time afraid to make a decision, but at the top it is extremely good! This "ruby" is already a solid competitor for Spartak in the game of the third round. However, Rubin decently tired, the defense has issues, but some manage of the game, to which we are accustomed. But "Spartacus "Spartacus" and you've got back to play with "Storm". It's certainly more powerful than the Slovan team, and I am absolutely unsure that in the 2nd game they can't do the same as "ruby", to score 3 goals away from home. Nothing in this pair it's not over" - quoted Lovchev "Soviet Sport".
As for the "Krasnodar", the southerners at home with 2: abigali "Slovan". "Krasnodar" has a specific expertise, composition, true, a little. Put 3 forwards - Ari, Wц║nderson and Smolov. Slovan was fearful crew. Went back and it so happened that "Krasnodar" just stuck in their own half. 22 people played as if in a close square was such term in "Spartak". But "Krasnodar" catalц═ catalц═ the ball, and due to the fact that it was not the last pass, could not reach the impact position," - said the expert.
According to him, in the return game at the club Sergey Galitsky can be difficult. "It is clear that the "Krasnodar" there is currently a player who could consistently give like finishing a fine pass, but the moments you still have. Well, put it up, so you remove the "Slovan". But here in consequence of such small things can get in the return game is a big problem," - he concluded.
