Where and when can teams meet?
The Cup of Russia and the Europa League are two football tournaments in which, by the will of fate, two illustrious national teams can cross swords.
Cup of Russia
The draw may reduce the PFK already 1/8 finals of the Cup of Russia, October 31 - November 1, 2018. But for this, the St. Petersburg team and Muscovites must successfully overcome the 1/16 finals of the KR.
Opponents in the Kyrgyz Republic met only twice. In the 2006/07 season, fate brought football teams together in the quarter finals of the tournament. In those years, the rules assumed paired meetings. Zenit lost the home game, but in the away match they managed to achieve only a draw. As a result, football players from Moscow were selected for the semi-finals.
Domestic TOP teams are rarely found in the Kyrgyz Republic. All because of their frivolous attitude to the tournament. The Football Cup of Russia does not bring as many dividends as the RPL and the more so the Champions League. Therefore, strong teams play at half strength, often yielding to outspoken outsiders.
If “Spartak” does not make it into the main part of the Champions League or it does, but it takes 3rd place in its group, in the spring of 2018 it can meet with “Zenith”.To do this, both Russian teams need to pass their rivals in 1/16. If the problem is successfully solved, they will be selected at 1/8. It is at this stage that lots can bring together St. Petersburgists and Muscovites!
