FC Rubin fullback Moritz Bauer shares his expectations ahead of the upcoming ROSGOSSTRAKH Russian Championship MD 20 against SKA-Khabarovsk.
-It’s going to be a hard game for us with a tough opponent to face. Their current rankings makes them fight for three points every game. They are delivering decent performance and do not deserve to be where they are in the standings now.
-What about Rubin’s current rankings?
-It’s true that we are not satisfied with our current rankings at all. You see, teams are close to each other in the league so we should do our best to go ahead and earn points.
-You are coming from Central Europe, what do you think of Russian winter football?
-Actually, playing in winter is not that challenging. Actially I’ve played on snowy pitches in Switzerland. Last weekend we played an away game against Lokomotiv, so the pitch was fantastic. In general, conditions are the same both for us and the opponents.
-There appeared some information regarding debts in payments with players in the team. What could you say about that?
-I don’t want to talk about any financial situation, I’m here to talk about football and work hard on the pitch. The upcoming match is the most important thing to be focused on now.
