As for Eder, in my opinion, he’s in good form, last year he helped us a lot, but the events in the match will show how much he will play,” said Semin.

The coach stressed that before the game “Locomotive” was a two-month pause in the Russian Premier League. “I guess I can’t say that today the team is ready for 100 percent, but there is a conation and desire, that should play a decisive role. This is the first official match, especially away, on the magnificent stadium with a good field, so the mood of the team is good,” said Semin.

“Of course, defeats (“nice” has lost three consecutive matches in the championship of France – approx. TASS) there are many things that are both benefit and harm, so you have to focus on yourself, not on the opponent. “Nice” is a very good team that has a game, there are good attacking Midfielders, the defenders, so the team looks impressive. No matter what place it occupies in the French League because there is only one match. Who will be better prepared for it, and he will win”, – said the coach of “Locomotive”.
