In the Fonbet Cup of Russia, matches of the first spring stage were played. Let’s see how the tournament grid looks now.
It’s unusual, like this whole prank. In the RPL Way, we now know all the semi-finalists: Krylia passed Dynamo (after 2: 1 they tied), and CSKA – Krasnodar (first 3: 0, and then 0: 1).
Before that, Spartak proved to be stronger than Loko, and Ural knocked out Rostov. The losers were only eliminated from the top, but not from the 2022/23 Russian Cup at all.
In the lower part, in the Path of Regions, all stages are in two stages, but in one match. Therefore, it is not entirely correct to say that Zenit and the rest won the matches of the 1/8 finals, it was the first stage of the quarterfinals.
The only remaining participant in the Russian Cup not from the RPL is Akron Togliatti, which knocked out Torpedo. The favorites won in the remaining matches: Zenit defeated Ulyanovsk Volga (3:0), Akhmat defeated Ufa (2:1), and Pari NN defeated St. Petersburg Zvezda from the Second League (2:0 ).
On March 2, we will find out who is next with whom: when the remaining heroes of the upper bracket and those going down will be determined. It will be a blind draw: that is, any pairs can form from the top four teams, as well as from the bottom four teams.
For example, in the Path of Regions, Zenit and Lokomotiv may well play against each other – and they (or any other pair) will have one match, someone will fly out without a second chance. What else is interesting for Loko: there is a chance to play with Pari NN, the former team of Mikhail Galaktionov, with whom he worked in the group stage of the tournament.
