it’s Amazing how after a three-month pause Zenit is not something that has not lost form, but on the contrary, he added. The first half played by the team Sergey Semak was close to perfect: the guests kept the ball, almost nothing is allowed to create their gates to the army, in addition, scored three goals. Could more, if not for the skill of Igor Akinfeev.
Finally showed itself from the best side Malcolm. The most expensive football player of our championship, passed last summer in the “Zenith” of Barcelona for 40 million euros, scored twice and had been exacerbated on his flank. Recall that the Brazilian almost missed the entire first part of the season due to injury. Whether the relative freshness compared to other partners, makes itself known, or its level is higher than the other, but in the match with CSKA Malcolm was gorgeous.
– Like all the guys, Malcolm has played 100 percent of their capabilities. He acted useful, strictly according to plan. Of course, there were some shortcomings, like everybody. But do not forget that today was the first match after a long pause, – said the chief coach of “Zenit” Sergei Semak.
unlike the Zenit CSKA have a huge problem. If this goes on, the army may have to remain without European competition next season. “Red-blue” extended series without victories in the championship to six games. This is the worst result over the past nine years.
the CSKA Fans upset should not so much this fact, and the team with great difficulty creates opportunities and often make mistakes in defense. Akinfeev helps his much as you can, but sometimes he is powerless, as in the episode with the first goal of Malkom, when the error of the hosts ‘ defender Viktor Vasin allowed the Brazilian literally from a few centimeters to break through on goal.
By the way, after the match, CSKA coach Viktor Goncharenko could not answer journalists ‘ questions. He became ill after the game. “Viktor Mikhailovich began to feel bad. Let’s not torture the man, he rose the pressure,” said one of the assistants of coach Sergey Ovchinnikov.
when Communicating with the media, Ovchinnikov has noticed that after this defeat will be followed by conclusions. The truth, which he did not specify.
– Error Vasina? I would not want to talk about someone personally. Defects happen at all. We will continue to take certain measures. Quick goals is not always the best influence on the course of the match. CSKA just not rebuilt, and “Zenit” was used by our weaknesses. Maybe I could have some other way to expose the defense. In any case, today’s match will give much food for thought, said Ovchinnikov.
the most Important victory has gained “Spartak”. Defeated Tula “Arsenal” (3:2), Domenico Tedesco team has risen to sixth place. If a few rounds ago it seemed almost unreal that by the end of theseason the “red-white” will be in their area, they are now behind by five points.
the meeting with Arsenal was controversial. On the one hand, almost all 90 minutes for Spartak controlled the situation and could have scored more than three goals. With another – have not gone away the problems in defense. In the stoppage time, the Muscovites missed twice and barely missed, it seemed guaranteed the three points.
– Win 3:0 would be nicer, but the match was six points. We won and went around the table, Arsenal is the most important thing – said the coach of “Spartak” Andreas Hinkel, who led the Tula team because of the disqualification of the head coach “red-white” Domenico Tedesco.
Slowly comes to life under Leonid Slutsky Rubin. Kazan beat away “Ural” (2:1) and rose to 11th place.
And the day before in Krasnodar was held a match between the same club, and “Dinamo”. However, it was postponed to July 19 due to three cases of infection with coronavirus in the capital club. On the transfer of the confrontation, reported the press service of the Russian football Union (RFU).
no Infection found from striker Clinton N JI, as well as midfielder Charles kaboré and Sebastian Szymanski. The basic structure of “white-blue” have gone on a two-week quarantine. Note that the “Dynamo” thanked “Krasnodar” in the person of the President of the club Sergey Galitsky “for a gesture of good will, human and sportsmanship”.
