Today, Rubin U21 have lost 2:3 in an away game against Lokomotiv Moscow within ROSGOSSTRAKH Russian U21 Championship MD19
The match was played in bad weather conditions. It was snowing heavily in Moscow and by the kick-off time it became still worse. Nevertheless, both teams create more than enough chances in the first half. Daniil Makeev and Mikhail Yakovlev try their luck from outside the box but their shots are saved by Lokomotiv’s keeper and defenders. It is Artem Galadzhan of Lokomotiv who won a duel against our defender and scores with a short-range shot.
The second half gets more snowy and delivers less football performance. The home side got adapted to the complicated weather conditions and scored two more goals past Aleksandr Filtsov. It is Galadzhan again who scores from outside the box and Nikita Dorofeev who converts a penalty. It was not until the last ten minutes when Rubin finally broke the deadlock. It is Daniil Makeev who scores our first goal after the Lokomotiv’s player mistake. Mikhail Yakovlev scores the second one as a result of a rebound following the free kick from Nikita Goldobin.
