Current Performance of Lok Moscow - There could be a better starting position for this rematch for the Russian team and his coach Igor Cherevchenko. After they have lost the first match against Fenerbahçe Istanbul it is very improbable that they will reach the eighth finals. However it looks much better for Lok in the Russian premier League. After 18 days of play they are at the fourth place in the table and have a score of 32 points. Even if they can’t reach the first place, which holds the rival ZSKA, because of five missing points, it is possible to get the second place though. Currently Rostov is on the second place in the table and if Moscow could push them to the third place they would qualify them self for the Champions League. One drawback at the first match against Istanbul, as the coach says, was that the Russian League has not started at this point. In addition the best attacking player of Lok Moscow, Baye Oumar Niasse, was transferred to Everton in winter, which was a setback for the team. It would be a real surprise if they could handle to move in to the eighth finals, but maybe the local audience can push the Russians to a good performance.
