As part of one of the matches of the 2nd round of the elite round of the Russian Cup, the players of Torpedo Vladimir and Ural Yekaterinburg will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be? LiveResult.Ru gives a forecast for this match.
Vladimir "Torpedo" plays in the second strongest division. Moreover, this season the team is fighting for getting into the top six. At the moment, the team from Vladimir has 11 points in the asset. It is worth noting the fact that the hosts are located on the 8th line in their FNL-2 group, lagging behind the desired 6th line by 3 points. In the last round, the Vladimir team managed to get a victory with a minimum score of 1: 0, defeating the "Wave". In the opening meeting of the elite round, Torpedo has already lost to KAMAZ with a minimum score of 0: 1.
The Bumblebees are currently playing under the leadership of Igor Shalimov, who was called up to the team as a savior. Interestingly, in 8 matches of the RPL, the Urals were able to score only 2 years. At the moment, the Yekaterinburg team is on the 16th place in the standings, having 3 points in its asset. Shalimov has not the worst personnel clip at hand, but there are no victories yet. In the last round, Ural was able to score one point. A home draw with Lokomotiv can be considered a successful result. Will the bumblebees manage to win their first victory in the Russian Cup?
