FC Krasnodar, FC Rostov and FC Lokomotiv of Moscow rank first, third and fifth respectively in the Russian Premier League. These three friend clubs visited us in 2019 during the Winter Break, playing friendly matches organized by Football Impact in their preparation.
After eight days played, only Rostov and Krasnodar with Zenit have lost only one game. Thanks to this, the three share the leadership of the highest category of Russian football with 17 points. Lokomotiv ranks fifth with fourteen points in a position that grants access to the Europe League.
Next Thursday the 19th, Krasnodar will begin its participation in a new edition of the Europe League. It will face FC Basel, another friend of Football Impact who visited us this winter too.
For its part, "loko" will debut a day earlier in the Champions League. The Muscovites will face FC Bayer Leverkusen in Germany in their first match in Group D, which they share with Atlético and Juventus.
