Russian soccer teams set for UEFA Cup group stage
Three Russian clubs are set for the group stage of the UEFA Cup, Europe`s second soccer tournament, on Thursday night.
Holders CSKA Moscow, Zenit St. Petersburg and Lokomotiv Moscow will all play away.
CSKA will take on Heerenveen from the Netherlands in a Group F, Zenit will face English side Bolton Wanderers in a Group H, and Lokomotiv will play Italy`s Citta di Palermo in a Group B.
CSKA has good chances of progressing as star players such as winger Yury Zhirkov and striker Vagner Love return from injury, but the bookies have less hope for Zenit and Lokomotiv.
