After last year's exciting final, the RPL teams enter this years Russian Cup tomorrow and Wednesday. As is usually the case, the RPL teams will have to start out on the road, and the ties are single elimination. IMO, Zenit and Spartak should play their reserves and leave the starters behind. They simply have too much ahead of them to worry about this Cup.

BTW, here are the locations of the majority of the First Division clubs so you can gage how far the RPL clubs will have to travel:

I agree. I also wouldn't be shocked if 7-8 RPL teams lost.

IMO, it would be inexcusable for DA to play any of his starters other than perhaps Tymoschuk.
Shirokov,Krizanac,Dominguez,Tekke,Sirl,Crapzullin.

Nah, Tekke, Sirl and Krizanac need their rest. Say what you want about these 3, but I still feel they are critical to Zenit's title hopes.

Here would be my defense:

Contofalsky
Ricksen-Hubocan-Pugrenyier-Reserve
Radimov​

Yeah, they just snuck through on penalties. But hopefully Zenit and Spartak will follow suit and play their reserves like the Kazan side.

Not the end of the world for Zenit to get eliminated. Pugrenyier had a chance to play in a low pressure situation, and now Zenit doesn't need to worry about this cup.

Sibir is really a nice story. I'd love to see them defeat Rubin and go on to win the whole thing.
Haha, that would be cool. Luckily they don't play them till next year cause everything is going Rubin's way right now! Just saw the Rubin-Amkar pk highlights, pretty funny :howler:

Yeah, those highlights were really funny. :thumbsup:

I think Terek (a few years back) were the only non-RPL team ever to win the Russian Cup. So it would be cool to see Sibir repeat that feat.
