Trailing before the 25th round of the top three “Krasnodar” met the neighbor at the table “Rostov”. This match, like the game “Sochi” – “Dinamo” and ended later.
Despite the fact that “Zenit” and “Tambov” teams from different weight categories and decide diametrically opposed objectives, the match, held in Nizhny Novgorod, turned dramatically. Nominal visitors through the efforts of Serdar Azmun at the end of the first half, took the lead and seemed to be calmly controlled the course of the game. However, on 88 minutes, Valeriu Ciuperca evened the score, converting a penalty awarded for a foul by Yaroslav Rakitskiy on Artem Fedchuk. And yet, the point in the match put “Zenit”, but rather, the forward pitertsev emiliano Rigoni, who scored on the first added minute of the meeting.

Well, the main match of the 25th round took place in Moscow on the Sandy street where in the “Derby of all Russia” CSKA defeated Spartak with the score 2:0. The fundamental match, the army team came in an unprecedented crisis. Its quintessence was the departure of head coach Viktor Goncharenko in Belarus. Without his mentor, wrote a letter of resignation, CSKA played with “Dinamo” (0:0), but for the match against the “red-white” Viktor Goncharenko came back to the coaching. It is interesting that, according to rumors, the return of the Belarusian expert to work is appreciated by all, even among players of the club. It is not surprising that against this background of “Spartacus” was considered the clear favorite of the meeting.
However, as they say that the most important Derby of the country abhors forecasts. “Red-white” have shown absolutely unprincipled football, especially in a positional attack. And in defense of the reliability of “Spartacus” is not enough. First saved by goalkeeper Alexander Maksimenko, who missed an unnecessary goal after a long range shot Nikola Vlasica. And in the 77th minute a straight red card for the go-ahead received best player of the guests Roman Zobnin. And all the same, vlašić in the end scored the most.
Thus CSKA has interrupted an unpleasant series with no wins from seven matches. Meanwhile “Spartak” this defeat effectively closed several possibilities.
