#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The second leg of the quarter-final of the country’s second most important futsal trophy – the Cup of Russia – will is being held by rivals in Yekaterinburg today. The winner of the pair will be determined by the results of two games.
Norilsk Nickel, as the current winner of the trophy, is the favorite. However, Sinara is not a team that can be easily broken. Despite the defeat of the Yekaterinburg team in the first match of the series – let us remind you that the northerners won with a score of 5:4 – Evgeny Kuksevich’s wards need to be extremely careful so that the trip to the Urals does not turn into defeat. Sinara is famous for its attacking game and, what is especially important, strong-willed character, which allows it to get out of the most difficult situations. However, there is no need to talk about the advantage of the Norilsk people in any case: the difference of one goal in mini-football can be easily corrected.
The game takes place today, November 26, in Yekaterinburg. The live broadcast of the match will be available on the official YouTube channel of the Russian Futsal Association.
As the This Is Taimyr wrote earlier, the well-known Russian futsal coach Alexander Sokolov, who had already headed the polar club in the past, has been appointed the senior coach of the youth teams of the Norilsk Nickel FC.
