the fact that this match became the longest in Premier League history (since 2001). Taking into account the compensated time the teams played 111 minutes! It is unlikely in the near future someone will be able to get this achievement.

Referee Vitaly Meshkov added to the match six minutes, but the players played another 13 – finished at 11 o’clock in the evening. Largely this happened because of the episode with a penalty in gate “Krasnodar”. Bags did not see game hand of defender of the guests Cayo, but the videoassisted he suggested that perhaps there was a violation. The judge at first waited for the decision of colleagues, after which he went to watch the replay. After that Bags indicates “point”, but does not whistle. Team VAR again looks at the moment – perhaps rostovchanina Maxim Osipenko was offside. And yet the penalty was given. Ivelin Popov converted him, and brought his team a draw.

of Course, the head coaches “Rostov” and “Krasnodar” was diametrically opposed assessments of that episode. According to the steering of the “yellow-blue” Valery Karpin, the penalty was absolute.

– I would Not like to speak about refereeing. What can you say about two episodes with hits points and a long penalty in gate “Krasnodar”? Do not say anything. Watched and watched. I even after one replay I saw, it became clear: it’s a penalty. Not understand what they so long looked, – said Karpin.

Sharply expressed, the head coach of guests Murad Musayev. In fairness, he criticized not only referees, but also their players.

– unfortunately, our gate was set a controversial penalty. For the umpteenth time this happens. In the past year in the fight for a place in the Champions League intervened blunders of the judge. If this continues, it is possible to finish the championship. Regarding our game, we knew that in the end not strong enough. It was necessary to score the second goal. Not to give away the initiative – said Musayev.

Meanwhile, another step towards winning the title has made “Zenith”. Beating on the road “Tambov” (2:1), “blue-white-blue” broke away from “the Locomotive” on 11 points.

the Team Sergey Semak was very close to the unexpected loss of points, but substitute emiliano Rigoni in the stoppage time brought the guests an important victory.

the Vast majority of opponents against us defense is very low, and we have to crack the defense. Aspects create, a lot of them, but don’t always take the right decisions. In some matches we have a good implementation. Now have fun and score as much as I would like, prevents nervousness, – said the chief coach of “blue-white-blue” Sergey Semak.

By the way, “Zenith” can become the champion this Sunday. This Saturday “the locomotive” RET��yuschy against Zenit by 11 points, lose points in the home match with “Sochi” and Petersburgers, in turn, should beat on a visit “Krasnodar”.

– these hands are not very concerned. We are focused on their game. It is clear that Sunday will be the top match, it is no need to configure. Look forward to it! The main thing – to recover and to approach to it fully armed, – Musayev said.

At the end of the 25th round of RPL happened in the first coach’s resignation after the resumption of the season. After the home defeat from the “Akhmad” (1:3) the management of “Arsenal” has sent in the resignation of Igor Cherevchenko, with which the gunners last year for the first time in history participated in the competition.

More recently, the “armourers” applied for a place in the Europa League zone. The team started well in the Premier League at the end of the year won in a row CSKA and “the locomotive” but has lost their last five matches and has slipped to 10th place. Who will lead the gunners instead Cherevchenko is unclear. In the media talking about a possible invitation of Yuri Semin. And while cooking Arsenal to the final meeting of the championship will be working in the farm club of the Tula “the Chemist-the Arsenal” Sergey Tan and coach of the youth team of Arsenal Nicholas kovardaev.

As in the Russian championship, the leading segment of the season came in the top European leagues. In particular, in Spain.

the previous evening the leader of “real” took “Getafe”. In case of a victory “Royal club” could increase the gap on Barcelona to four points.

meanwhile, in the camp of the Catalans serious conflict: players do not accept the ideas of the head coach Quique Setien. According to reports the Spanish media, the specialist may leave his post in the coming days.

the worst of Selena have a relationship with Antoine Grismannen. Rumor has it that the Frenchman did not even communicate with the mentor. He Setien after a meeting with Atletico Madrid (2:2), in which Griezmann played about four minutes, said he was not going to apologize to your player.

– Understand his feelings. Antoine – professional and a wonderful person. I feel sorry for him. But Ricky Puig is working well and Messi and Suarez need to be on the field. It is not easy to find a place Grisman not destabilizing the team, he Setien.
