Good start to the season after Spartak wins the Russian Super Cup over local rivals Lokomotiv Moscow 2-1 in extra time. The game was tied 0-0 after 90 minutes. Promes kicking on with his goal scoring. I'm also happy to see Lorenzo Melgarejo part of the squad. He set up Luiz Adriano for the first goal of the match. I really think we'll need his quality as we rotate the starting 11 with the Champions League games this season. He won't be a starter, but we will need him this season.

Starting 11 for Spartak was:

Rebrov, Eshcenko, Dzikiya, Bocchetti, Kombarov, Fernando, Glushakov, Popov, Promes, Ze Luis and Adriano. The subs that came in were Ananidze for Popov, and Melgarejo for Ze Luis.

The bench consisted of - Selihov, Petkovic, Tigiev, Kutepov, Leontayev, Bakaev, Nimely and Davydov.

Outside of Ananidze, Melgarejo, Petkovic and Kutepov the squad needs a bit more in terms of reinforcements if they are to challenge for the title once again.

First match of the RPL season is coming up against Dinamo in Khimki on Tuesday, 18/7.

Also... good start by Spartak Moscow II to the new season defeating last season's RPL side FC Orenburg 1-0 at home. The goal was scored by Fashion Sakala, a 20 year-old Zambian forward who joined the club this past season.

I've been reading a lot of good things about Sakala.

Really tough pillow to swallow as we draw 2-2 away to our bitter rivals Dinamo Moskva. This, after being up 2-0 and looking in control. However Dinamo found a way and in stoppage time in the 92nd minute managed to find an equalizer. As much as I dislike Dinamo it's nice to see they're doing a bit better as they're a historic side in Russian football and need to be a player to make the Russian league more interesting as some of the other Moscow sides in recent times haven't been there (excluding Spartak and CSKA of course).

No reason to get upset though; it's still early in the season and I'm sure the Super Cup played its part in the players' concentration towards the end of the 2nd half. Moving forward onto the next game. Also, must be said, with the form Promes finds himself in it will be hard to keep him. Also, Luiz Adriano is looking as slim as I've seen him since his glory days at Shaktar Donetsk. I firmly believe he will have an excellent season.

Starting 11 was - Rebrov, Eshcenko, Kutepov, Bocchetti, Kombarov, Fernando, Glushakov, Promes, Luiz Adriano, Melgarejo, and Ze Luis. There was no Zobnin from the beginning. Subs that came in were Timofeev for Ze Luis in the 89th minute and Popov for Luiz Adriano in the 65th minute. I'm hopeful that Timofeev can make an impression as I was impressed with him when he was introduced during pre-season a couple of years ago under Karpin. Surely it's do or die for the young midfielder at Spartak this season.

A second yellow to Samedov just before the break, and another won game will be a turnaround. Our third in the season :facepalm:
