Lokomotiv youth drew the match with Amkar in Gameweek 10 of the Russian Championship.
It was a somewhat trimmed Lokomotiv junior team that hit the ground training during the pause. A part of players went away for international fixtures, a few were called up to the main team. Lapshov, Galanin and Lysov, who had been selected for the Russia youth squad, just returned home the day before the game. The latter two started the match in Perm on the bench.
Although during the opening half the threat posed by Amkar and Lokomotiv respectively was minimal, each side managed to find the back of the net. The home team did it off a corner kick. The visitors crossed the ball from the wing to put it past the hosts' keeper. However, the referee cancelled both goals due to foul play.
In the closing half the game followed the same pattern. The rivals played rough going into the book time and again. Defence was excellent. Attacking-wise, the foes managed little. Midway through the second half, Rybchinskiy and then Dorofeev came close to opening the score, but Perm footballers blocked the shots - 0:0.
