Rinat Bilyaletdinov: “I would not call Zenit the champion, the fight is still ahead”


Russian coach Rinat Bilyaletdinov shared his expectations from the upcoming resumption of the Russian championship.

“I expect an interesting fight. After a long pause, I want to see the passion and speed on the field. I would not call Zenit the champion now, there will still be a struggle for the first line. “Dynamo” there “sat on the wheel.” The Petersburgers, as it seemed to me at the first meeting with Betis, have not yet recovered from the loads.

If the lead in the championship had been more solid – eight points, for example, then Betis could have been approached in full combat readiness. So far, the struggle for the championship and for getting into the eurozone is still ahead. I would also not discount Spartak,” Betonmobile.ru quotes Bilyaletdinov.

Tinkoff RPL will resume on February 26. On this day, the first matches of the 19th round of the championship will be held.

Zenit is currently leading the standings with 38 points. Dynamo are in second place with 36 points. Sochi closes the top three (31 points).

Spartak is in ninth position with 23 points.
