In the course of the game Rubin are dominating with a more ball possession, pushing more than the opposition half. There is some inaccuracy in the final third and some good finish is needed. In particular, Rifat Zhemaletdinov is our most active player in the first half with some good chances. As for Tosno, it is Reziuan Mirzov who is pushing forward but is not allowed to succeed owing to some good defending performance from our centre backs and goalkeeper. The biggest chance for Tosno in the first half is created in the 38th minute as Pavel Pogrebnyak finish is close after the ex-Rubin midfielder Vagiz Galiullin.
The second half is opened with Tosno dominating and it is Pogrebnyak again who has a good chance to open the score but his short-range finish was not accurate enough. Our boys are tenacious enough to resist the opposition side’s pressure and win the ball back.
It is in the 75th minute when our domination is converted by Vyacheslav Podberezkin perfect finish and first goal for FC Rubin after an excellent assist from Fedor Kudryashov. It is Ricardinho who comes on the pitch with his late attempt to equalize but Soslan Dzhanaev does a great job tonight.
