We offer to your attention a direct online broadcast of the final match for the Cup of Russia on football of the season-2016/17 between “Ural” and “Locomotive”. The match will take place on may 2, beginning at 18:45 GMT.

Former goalkeeper of “Locomotive” and Russian national team Ruslan Nigmatullin has told about his expectations before the Russian Cup final Ural — Lokomotiv.

“Judging by the last two matches, the favourites in the final of the Cup of Russia. It’s probably related to the fact that all forces have been thrown on the preparations for the match. If we ignore the last two rounds, the “Ural” has gathered pace and the “Loco” had a good run in the championship.

Don’t want to think that the “Locomotive” now everything is bad, and that’s how it looks on the latest games. Rubin have not won, but it turned out that he came to “the railroad” and won . While all looks a bit sad for the team, it is suitable to match a bit in a disassembled state. Don’t know how to take a winning spirit. Head coach of “Locomotive” Yuri Semin can become a leader by number of wins in the tournament, then I wish him.

As for “Ural” Alexander Tarkhanov and Gregory Ivanov commands respect. They did a great job. The club with the provincial budget afloat and shows very nice game. “Ural” can bite any team.

I think that today in the Russian Cup final in regular time will be 1:1″, — said Nigmatullin.
