Ural won in first two rounds and because of that no one expected a crisis that came after. They won Ufa and Akhmat and scored even six goals in those two matches. Now, they didn’t win anyone in four previous rounds out of which they lost three matches; two in a row. They scored two goals in the only draw but against Rostov it was good enough only to tie the result.

Sochi still waits for its first victory in the Premier League but it seems that is making progress as they lost in first three rounds and then drew in following drew. Opponents in first three rounds were strong teams and Sochi couldn’t score a single goal in matches with Spartak, Zenit and Krasnodar. They drew in previous three rounds and scored just one goal but 0-0 with CSKA in Moscow was a very good result. In the previous round they scored the only goal so far, Poloz was accurate from the penalty spot 20 minutes before the end. They still waiting for the first goal from play. Stopper Miladinovic is suspended, while Barsov is injured.
