Torpedo from Moscow and Chertanovo are playing a city derby today (5 pm CET) in the 32nd round of the 2nd Russian league. This is a duel between sixth and nineteenth clubs in the league, which are fighting for different goals in the remaining 11 rounds. Torpedo is trying to get at least a fourth place, that would put them in the play-offs for the 1st division, while Chertanovo is trying to avoid last six places, which leading to a lower third rank.

Torpedo was high for a long time, second and third, playing creative, aggressive and attacking football, with many goals scored, but surprisingly faltered in the second half of this season. He suffered 4 defeats in the last 4 rounds, and after last game and defeat 1:4 in Nizhny Novgorod, coach Sergei Ignashevich was fired, while on Monday, the experienced, 58-year-old Alexander Borodyuk was appointed as new coach.

There are big expectations from Borodyuk to get this team back in good shape and start winning from today's match against Chertanovo. New coach said that the problem is of a psychological nature, that Torpedo has very good players, especially in attack, because Lebedenko and Kalmikov have already scored 19 goals, and club is especially efficient at home with 26 goals in 16 matches. There are no major concerns about Borodyuk's squad today and attacks from the first minute are expected.

Chertanovo from Moscow is nine points away from safe zone and a very difficult task awaits him in remaining 11 rounds. The biggest problem for coach Andrey Dmitriev is defense, they conceded 53 goals in 31 games, of which 34 away. Also, many players are injured, defenders Yegor Kondakov, Andrey Zakharov, Anton Efremov and midfielder Nikita Pershin are still in the club's clinic and aren't running for today's game, while Leonid Gerchikov, Alexei Nikitenkov, Danila Molodnyakov, Dmitry Velikorodny, Artem Sokolov and Alexander Kanishchev are questionable.

Dmitriev will have to change and mix his starting line-up again, but the guests don't have a choice, they must also go bravely and try to win this match, because they have a big gap behind the 16th place. It's good for them that attackers Sulejmanov and Molchanov are ready to play, as well as top scorer of the club Zavezen.

This is a match in which there will be no calculation, because Torpedo with a new coach has imperative to win, while Chertanovo also, only if wins three points, prolongs his hope of salvation. Torpedo is an attack-oriented team, third in the league in the number of goals scored, while their defense hasn't seemed safe lately. Between options Torpedo to win with two golas difference and goals, this time we choose 3+.
