MOSCOW, 23 APR — f-Sport, Alexander Rogulev. The players of the Moscow “Locomotive” in his field defeated CSKA Moscow in the match of the 11th round of the championship of Russia and broke its losing streak in the tournament, which lasted almost two months.

The meeting, held Sunday at the stadium “Lokomotiv” in Cherkizovo, ended with the score 1:0 in favor of the home team. A goal in the 65th minute of the match was scored by the forward of “red-green” Maicon. “The locomotive” has beaten CSKA for the first time since March 24, 2012.

Fireworks before the game

Derby between Lokomotiv and CSKA looked great rehearsal six days before the hottest, according to many, the confrontation in the Russian Premier League between CSKA Moscow and Spartak. In General, all had to be pretty predictable: CSKA, the reigning champion, is chasing the leader – “red-white”, “locomotive”, by contrast, does not win for five rounds and trying to leave the zone play-offs. However, Derby then Derby to spring surprises.

The management of “Locomotive” is trying to create around the home matches the atmosphere of the holiday: the minimum number of police cordons, queues, lot of interesting things at the stadium. Compared to last fall – the heaven and earth. And, visually, a bit more. Not crowded but certainly not from sadness. To make it more fun, “locomotive” before the game was organized by fireworks. That’s right, after the match, he could be already not so necessary.

Fans of “red-green” the main hope associated with good luck. Her return was to provide a “cock” – the legendary hat of the head coach “the Locomotive” Yury Semin, which is associated with a lot of victories of the club. Specialist said earlier, I can not find this hat and promised to strengthen the search of a Derby. Alas, the coach appeared on the bench in a stylish coat, but no hat.

Here is the lineup Semin put pragmatic: without a sound forward, sending on the role of the nominal centre-forward young Aleksey Miranchuk. To help him was called Manuel Fernandes, but in General the head coach of “Locomotive” was realized with the current champion to play open football impossible.

Fans of “Locomotive” congratulated Akinfeev anniversary

CSKA in the starting lineup, it was even clearer. Zoran Tosic really is completely healthy, he appeared from the first minute, but Alex Ionov left in stock. Rumours that the footballer had a conflict with the head coach Leonid Slutsky now has one more indirect confirmation. However, in midfield, CSKA have enough players that can replace ions without loss.

The irreplaceable goalkeeper of CSKA Igor Akinfeev in the match celebrating a new achievement: the game in Cherkizovo it was 350 for the “red-blue” in the championship of Russia. Thus, the 30-year-old goalkeeper, who made his debut in the Premier League in 2003, has set another record — as a player who spent the most appearances for the same club. Previously the owner of this achievement was Valery Esipov, played for Volgograd “Rotor” 349 matches.

Fans forum “the Locomotive” already on the first minute Akinfeev was congratulated with the anniversary. And was wondering: fans of “red-green” really watching the number of matches of CSKA captain or is it the chant was dedicated to the updated record for a goalkeeper in the Champions League, which, after a draw with “Monaco” (1:1) passed exactly 40 games of the main club tournament of continent.

Work Akinfeev in the first half was at times less than on Tuesday. For the first ten minutes of CSKA took the game under control, and the owners were out of the penalty area CSKA attacks. However, it counterattacks “the Locomotive” could lead to a goal. For example, Vitaliy Denisov was hit from a distance, but the target was not hit. But Aleksandr Samedov was trying to portray something after a free kick, but the ball flew off somewhere.

Maicon scored a goal “from the hospital”

The funny thing is that overall control of the game CSKA dangerous moments is not reached at all. From what you can remember – a shot in the bar performed by Vasily Berezutsky after a corner at the end of the first half. The saddest thing is that this was the only shot on target for the entire first half. “The football that we deserve,” joked colleagues, already frozen in their seats in the press box.

A little fun went to the game after the break. Lokomotiv first decided on a replacement. Semin long was explaining something to Maicon before you put him on the field. The Brazilian has missed more than a month, and his involvement in the game was questionable. But Maicon took less time to score than the last coach: striker immediately picked up the ball, went around the Berezutski and drove the ball past Akinfeev stretched out.

The trouble for CSKA came, as expected, not one: after a couple of minutes in an ordinary encounter with Taras Mykhalyk was injured bebras Natcho, who was carried off on a stretcher. And the replacement came just Ions, about which there was so much talk during the week. The story could then turn 180 degrees: the Russian midfielder got a great chance to score but Guilherme Lokomotiv rescued.

CSKA after conceding a goal, began to attack more dangerous, but it was too late. The only thing that could happen at the last minute – a goal of “Locomotive” in the counterattack of the hockey format of “three in two”. However, one effective blow for victory was enough. But the salute on this occasion was not: all the charges are spent before the game.
