Draw in Cherkizovo

Absent Dmitry Loskov and Dmitry Sychev, who started the game on the bench, and disqualified Denis Glushakov Renat Yanbaev has become a team captain in this game.

In first half an hour it was an equal struggle. Railwaymen controlled the ball better and won most of fights, but it was very difficult to get over compact defensive redoubts of Rubin.

Scarcely the stopwatch had past 30 minutes when game had exploded. Teams had created the flood of moments. Paraguayan forward of Rubin Nelson Valdes was the first who had a great opportunity to score a goal. Railwaymen had lost the ball in the middle of the pitch and Paraguyan ran out one on one with Guilherme. However Valdes had released the ball very far and Brazilian goalkeeper of Loko neutralized the threat.

Loko had answered one minute after. Maicon ran with the ball on left wing and passed it in the penalty area but Felipe Caicedo didn`t touch the ball.

Its next moment Lokokomotiv had created after the corner. Manuel Da Costa jumped in his style and made a strong head strike, but Ryzhikov in a beautiful save fished out the ball from under framework.

Rubin had answered without delay. Eremenko got the ball in the penalty area and strongly kicked in the nearest corner – Guilherme was ready. Just one minute after Guilherme became the hero of the episode again, when in the selfless jump he took the ball from Karadeniz. In fine teams went to their dressing rooms with 0:0 on the scoreboard.

In the second half Loko was needed just seven minutes to score a goal. Caicedo got the ball when he was turned by his back to the goal and passed it to Zapater, who strongly kicked from 23 meters and hit the corner! In a press box there were two journalists who were particularly happy at this moment. Two reporters from the main Spanish sport newspaper AS had came to Moscow specially for watching the game of Lokomotiv number 4 and communicating with him after the match.

After Zapater`s goal the picture of the game has changed and reminded about first third of the match. A lot of fights and minimum of moments.

Unfortunately even in a such game Rubin had found and realized its chance. After the corner raylwaymen had lost sight of Dyadyun who forwarded the ball behind the line by head.

At once Loko was close to its the second goal. Maicon took the ball on his chest elegantly and kicked – the ball missed the post just a little.

Red-greens continued to put pressure on Rubin, but all their attempts were unsuccessful. The draw as a final result and lossless series of our team has reached 14 games.
