Though defending champions Rubin Kazan continue to roll through the Russian Premier League, the club hit a major stumbling block in Kiev when they lost their Champions League opener to Dyanmo. Beyond the loss, Rubin’s poor performance forces hosts Chris Riordan and Richard Farley to evaluate how good this year’s Russian teams are.
In addition, Chris and Richard get you up to date on …
- the performances of Russians performing beyond Russia’s borders,
- the rumors surrounding the league (specifically Zenit), and
- give you their impressions of last week’s league action and the weekend of football to come.
It’s the fourth episode of Russian Football Now’s Podcast.
