Rostov will be missing Dzyuba, and it’s the same as if they are missing half of the team because Dzyuba is their top goalscorer and by far the best player this season. He scored 7 out of 12 Rostov goals so far. Without him they will struggle in attacking part while Lokomotiv on the other hand under coach Kuchuk is playing better and better. Lokomotiv recenty also bought Boussoufa and Lassana Diarra, two quality players who should add more depth to their play.
Rostov played some solid games but it was all against lower class teams and now they are facing four difficult challenges in which they won’t be capable of taking as much as point or two and it would be a huge surprise if they get anything here.
