Leonid Slutskiy: Matches against Rubin are always tough
— Matches against Rubin are always tough, especially on their pitch. It's a well organized and disciplined team. It's always difficult to play against them, even if some player is missing: right now we don't know, whether Roman Eremenko will be able to play. We didn't play very well in Kazan in the last couple of years, and we're expecting a challenging game, but we'll do our bests.
— Does our club have an advantage due to the fact that Rubin played an away Europa League qualifier on Thursday?
— On one hand, it may be an advantage, because Rubin has a very tough calender: on Thursday they played in Denmark, and on Sunday are going to play with us. But, on the other, Rubin have a great experience and it's not the first time they have such a tight schedule.
— Georgy Milanov prepared for the match with the team. Is is possible that he'll make his debut for PFC CSKA against Rubin?
— Yes, there is such a chance.
