10 bookings, 2 sending-off, and another goal for Aleksey Miranchuk. Lokomotiv and Krylia Sovetov played to a 1-1 draw

After the game in Kazan, Lokomotiv has made several changes to their starting line up. Rybus stretched knee ligaments and was replaced by Idowu, Kvirkvelia took Corluka’s place in centre of defence, and Zhemaletdinov returned after suspension.

Before the game, Krylia have replaced their head coach. Miodrag Bozovic got sacked on Sunday, and on Monday Krylia appointed Andrey Talalaev as a new manager.

Before the game, Marinato Guilherme and Dmitry Barinov received commemorative shirts. In the game against Rubin, Marinato achieved his 100th clean sheet in the Premier League, while for Dima the game against Krylia became his 100th appearance for Lokomotiv.

In the first half the game was quite slow and teams created only a few chances. Lokomotiv barely gave the ball away and just before half time the possession of the ball reached 76 percent, however this did not result in anything. On the other hand, Krylia used their first counter attack - Glushenkov opened on the wing and rolled the ball to Radonic, who was in the middle. Kvirkvelia intercepted the pass, however Krylia’s striker managed to pick up the ball again, passed Corluka and beat Guilherme through his legs.

After that, Krylia barely tried to threaten Lokomotiv goal, and the majority of the game took place in Samara’s half of the pitch. Lokomotiv created three good chances before the break, but could not convert them into goals. First Miranchuk’s low cross to Krychowiak was blocked by Lystsov. Then Corluka had a good chance from the corner, but his header was saved by Frolov.

Zhemaletdinov had the best opportunity to equalise the score. Aleksey Miranchuk’s pass found Rifat in the penalty box, but Rifat’s shot went wide of far post.

Lokomotiv left for the break, losing 0:1 and without Guilherme. Marinato got a slight injury in the middle of the half and asked for a substitution.
The second half began with a sending-off for Lokomotiv. Ignatjev fouled Kabutov and received a second yellow card.

After that, Krylia played strictly on counter attacks, driven by Zinkovskiy and Glushenkov. Glushenkov had two really dangerous shots, but Kochenkov managed to save them and keep Lokomotiv in the game.

On 68th minute there was a controversial episode, when Frolov came out of the goal and grabbed the ball outside the penalty area. The referee did not pay attention to the episode. Later on, Krylia still got the red card, Hadi earned two bookings in two minutes and left the field.

After that, Lokomotiv were pressing hard, while Krylia counter attacks became even more dangerous. Zinkovskiy in the 91st minute could have finished the game, running one on one with the goalkeeper, but his lob shot was too weak and then Corluka cleared the ball away.

Lokomotiv scored the equaliser in the last attack. Joao Mario sent a lofted ball into the box, where Aleksey used his shoulder to put the ball into the net, scoring his fourth goal in his last three games.

On Saturday Lokomotiv will face Sochi.
