On February 10, we will play against the Kazakh Ordabasy. The club from Shymkent has become one of the leaders of local football relatively recently. In 2011 and 2012, he won the Cup and the Super Cup of Kazakhstan, respectively, and in 2017 and 2019 he took bronze medals of the championship twice. Ordabasy also has a European Cup experience, albeit limited to the qualifications of the Europa League. In total, Shymkent residents played 15 matches in this tournament. We also note that our compatriot Alexander Kleshchenko is playing in the rival.
On February 11, Alania will take to the field against the Latvian RFS. The residents of Riga founded the club in 2005, and reached the top league in 2016. It took the team a couple of years to become a contender for gold medals, but each time FC RFS conceded the title to the more famous FC Riga. RFS has two silver and one bronze medals of the Latvian Championship. The club also won the national Cup in 2019.
Finally, on February 18, on the last day of the training camp, our rival will be another team from Kazakhstan - FC Caspiy. The upcoming season will be the second for Aktau residents in the Major League.
All matches will start at 17:00 Vladikavkaz time.
