Three matches on Saturday launched a new, 26-th championship of Russia on football. Central in the first round will be the meeting between Rubin Kazan and Krasnodar, as well as between the capital’s «Dynamo» and «Spartak» — winners of superiority of FNL and the Russian championship last season, respectively. In addition, in the Premier League will debut a new head coach Petersburg «Zenith» Roberto Mancini.

Zenit begins in the far East

The first round will start the match in Ekaterinburg, where «Ural» will meet «Rostov» — one of the main newsmakers of the offseason (with a minus sign). The team from the banks of the don for a couple of months has changed beyond recognition: with head coach Kurban Berdiyev in the left Kazan Serdar Azmun, Fedor Kudryashov, Soslan Dzhanaev and Vladimir Granat in the St. Petersburg «Zenith» came Denis Terentyev, Christian Noboa, Aleksandr Erokhin Dmitry Poloz, in Moscow «the locomotive» — Nikita Medvedev, and césar Navas close to retirement. As the «Rostov» will be able to cope with these losses, will be seen on the game in the Urals.

Absolute beginner Premier League «Tosno» in St. Petersburg will test Ufa. The Bashkir club is held in the Premier League for three seasons and is clearly not going to fly in the fourth. While it is likely that later and «Ufa» and «Tosno» will fight for survival in the Premier League. In the third Saturday match in Kaspiysk will meet Makhachkala «Anji» and CSKA Moscow, who begins his first full season under the direction of Victor Gancharenko.

The Sunday program will open first round match in the far East between «SKA-Khabarovsk» and «Zenit». The game could go to in the suburbs as the Premier League was a complaint to the lawn to Khabarovsk Lenin stadium. However after negotiations of the head RFS Vitaly Mutko with the Governor of Khabarovsk territory Vyacheslav Shport, the decision was made to replace the turf on more modern, which was laid in early July and has successfully passed the certification. The match is expected to be sold out. What to away teams, the first official match of «Zenit» under the guidance of Mancini is understandable the interest to the same «blue-white-blue» have time over the summer to recruit newcomers, among them Leandro Paredes, Sebastian Driussi players of the national team of Russia Erokhin and Snake. The question is, how much they will need time to adapt in «Zenith».

Time to lose have no Berdyev

After «Zenith» will begin the championship for another two contenders to fight in the top of the table – «the ruby» and «Krasnodar». Return to Kazan Berdyev makes fans optimistic, but time to lose, the coach will not be in the 2nd round in the rivals of Kazan «Zenit» in the 4th – CSKA Moskva, 5-m – «the locomotive».

«Krasnodar» the schedule a little easier, but the acquisition team is still in full swing. The team of Igor Shalimov summer was engaged in strengthening the defense, signing contracts with Renat by Anbaawy, Alex Gritsaenko and Roman Shishkin. Remains unclear situation with the possible departure of striker Fyodor Smolov (and the subsequent search for the replacement), which is also still injured.

Also on Sunday, the first match in the Premier League after renaming will hold Grozny, «Akhmad» (formerly «Terek»), which will Perm «Amkar». Two more meetings of the tour will take place on Tuesday with the participation of teams play on Friday, the Russian super Cup. «Locomotive» will take the Tula Arsenal under the leadership of Miodrag Bozovic, and «Dynamo» in Khimki will meet with «Spartak».
