Genich is not sure if Spartak will be able to make it to the group stage of the Champions League

The commentator spoke about the struggle for second place in the RPL.

Konstantin Genich talked about the fight for a place in the Champions League. According to him, “Spartak” is unlikely to be able to master the two qualifying rounds of the European tournament. Lokomotiv is also unlikely to be able to qualify for the group in the Champions League.

Until the end of the season, Lokomotiv will play against Zenit, Dynamo, Ural and Krylya Sovetov in the Russian Cup final. According to Genich, the calendar is easier for the red-whites, who will have to meet with Arsenal, Khimki and Akhmat.

The calendar is really easier, but tell this to Spartak, who lost 0: 3 to Ufa at home. If Spartak make it to the Champions League, it could be a bonus in favor of Tedesco’s preservation. As much as the coach swaggers, there is still a chance that he will change his mind. The Champions League is a great reason for this.

I’m not sure if Spartak is ready to go through two qualifying rounds. And I’m not sure about Lokomotiv either. So it’s hard to think in terms of what is best for Russian success in Europe. Loko has a more mature line-up, but there will be rearrangements. In theory, Spartak has more resources to strengthen “, – said Genich.
