the Trainer of visitors shows false modesty, and Spalletti is self-assured

In the championship of Croatia « Hajduk » goes now on the second place, conceding only one point to the leader - Zagreb « the Dynamo ». As to a forthcoming match in Petersburg the head coach of the command of Stanko Poklepovich considers that a position of the favourite (« Zenith ». - the bus Comment) always presses. And in this sense at its pupils will be more open space.

- it will be easier To us to play against « Zenith » than against « Slavena » (commands from Koprivnitsy who now goes on the ninth place in the Croatian championship. In a past week-end football players from Split have beaten « It is nice » in the eleventh tour of the championship of Croatia with the bill 1:0. - a bus Comment) . To Petersburg we go to roles « Slavena » and « Zenith » will act in a role « Hajduka » - Poklepovich on the eve of a departure to Russia has told. - nothing burdens us, we are ready to play raskovanno and to use any moment while on the Petersburg club huge responsibility presses.

the Croatian trainer considers the command young and not skilled. Also he complains about losses - some strong football players in an infirmary.

- At « Hajduka » last years there were also more successful times, - tells Poklepovich. - Now game leaves to wish much the best. And it me worries. Nevertheless we play to Europe. So, it is necessary only to train, work and try to solve problems.

the Head coach « Zenith » Luchano Spalletti looks at forthcoming game pragmatically enough:

- I Wait for a difficult match. Saw, how plays « Hajduk ». They give out good matches. From the football players I wait for good game. After all, having earned nine points, we almost will provide to ourselves an exit from group. Therefore should win. As to fans « Hajduka » I am not familiar with them. And our fans, I hope, will continue to help with the same victorious spirit to the command.

Who violent and who is not present

- With fans « Hajduka » at us the general is not present anything, - speaks « getting » zenitovskogo the fan - a bend on « Petrovsky » Alexander Mokasin. - we with them were never crossed. Information a little. I know that their style bolenija about same, as well as in other clubs jugo - east Europe. Hot, southern. I would compare them to Serbs and Greeks. I know that atmosphere at stadiums in Croatia more rigid, than, say, in Serbia. From Russia Croats meet clubs inhospitably. We exactly concern each rival. They are identical to us - all need to be beaten. Therefore we in any way do not allocate « Hajduk ».

the Correspondent « » has phoned in a press - service of the Croatian club.

- To us it is allocated seven hundred tickets, - have informed there. - But to Russia are going to go about four hundred. At least, while to us so much demands have arrived.

- Speak, your fans very violent?

- Is not present - is not present! They completely not violent. Now they quiet. All will pass cultural. Simply they very strongly love « Hajduk ». They are not dangerous to other people - anybody are not going to beat.

the Match will be served by the Czech arbitrators

the Main judge Libor Kovarzhik is appointed, compatriots Patrick Filipek and Kristof Mentsl, behind collars - Radek Prigoda and Tomash Kokurek will help it on lines. Duties of the reserve judge are assigned to Pavela Kralovetsa.

to the Main arbitrator Kovarzhiku already dropped out twice to judge games of the Russian clubs: in 2010 it worked on game « the Ruby » and « Hapoelja » (0:0) in League of Europe, and then - in the same tournament - served a match « Siberia » - « Apollo » (1:0). In bias in relation to Russians it is not noticed.
