As soon as arrived in Ufa, Lokomotiv had a training yesterday evening at Dinamo Stadium. Today, in the city, fell a stab fog, which forced the teams playing "blindly".
Miodrag Bozovic flew in Ufa with the major team. Compared to the derby of Moscow against Spartak, Manuel Fernandes changed Aleksander Sheshukov, Roman Shishkin took the place of Renat Yanbaev and Guilherme substituted Ilya Abaev. In the first XI there were also Roman Pavlyuchenko and Alan Kasaev, who on Sunday played in the second half.
In the begin of the match, Loko tried to adapt to the weather conditions. At 5' Ufa had a chance, but they didn't take advantage by a free kick. Generally, the first minutes were strong for both sides, but as soon as Lokomotiv reached to create a significant attack, 'Railroaders' took the lead. Shishkin supported the action and offered an assist to Mbark Boussoufa. The Moroccan, completely alone, scored ahead against Veremko - 1:0!
In the next 10 minutes, the home-side pressed constantly the Loko defense, throwing again and again the ball in the area. The most dangerous chance arrived after 33 minutes: Handzic kicked, but Guilherme was careful.
The final minutes of first half were characterized by some opportunities for Ufa, but thanks to fog and Guilherme, they weren't really dangerous.
The second half was similar to the first. At 72', Ufa arrived well on the right, crossed the ball, but Akakhoshi was inaccurate. Five minutes later, Fernandes entered in the area, but Tumasyan anticipated the goalkeeper.
Although, before the final whistle, Ufa tried to organize a siege to Loko area and in the final seconds they hit the crossbar, Lokomotiv was qualified to the 1/4 of Kubok Rossii, where 'railroaders' will face the winning team of the match Rubin - Spartak.
