The matches of these opponents have been connected with the changes in the coaching staff.Lokomotiv`s defeat in the first round match of 2011/12 season resulted in discharge of the railmen`s manager Yuri Krasnozhan, the match of the second round was held following the appointment of a new coach in the Dagestani team.
This tendency is still preserved: Lokomotiv has recently made a visit to Dagestan headed by Slaven Bilic, this time the post is taken by Leonid Kuchuk.Indeed, the fans are interested in the staff additions of the Dagestani team. Five sportsmen have joined the Dagestani team, including 3 international players and our old friend Christopher Samba.
If forward Alexander Kokorin has to serve three suspensions, all other footballers together with the Russian national team`s captain Igor Denisov, will most probably take the field in the first XI.
