RFPL Round 19: Results & Team of the Week

The most recent edition of our Team of the Week seems a little two-sided, literally. Seven of the players involved come from CSKA or Anzhi after their respective impressive 6-0 and 4-0 results at home to Tosno and SKA. Such was the dominant performance of CSKA's supremely talented midfield, all three were going to make up the RFN TOTW midfield trio, but Aleksandr Golovin was omitted due to his penalty miss (despite that brilliant goal).

RFPL Round 18: Results & Team of the Week

  This week's results were finally somewhat easier to predict, with a few expected scorelines such as Amkar's low-scoring home victory and CSKA, Lokomotiv and Rostov all winning.

Spartak destroyed Krasnodar in Krasnodar this week, and Sergei Galitsky must surely be … [Read more...]

Last week was arguably one of the most boring rounds of Premier League action since the inception of the division in 1992. However, Round 15 returned with a bang as our newly appointed leaders at the top, Lokomotiv Moscow, destroyed title rivals Zenit St. Petersburg 3-0 at the Krestovsky, thanks to numerous sublime performances. This is the first time the Railwaymen have occupied first place in the table since 2004 and a record four Loko players feature in Round 15's TOTW. After not having a … [Read more...]
