FC Rubin have won 1:0 over FC Khimki in a Olymp Russian Cup Round of 32 away fixture and qualified for the Round of 16 to face FC Dinamo Moscow.
The first half was quite tough for both sides. FC Rubin as the match favourite had some overload being able to build-up while FC Khimki counted on counter attacks which were a little a bit better. Our best chance in the first half was created right before the half-time as Igor Konovalov after a flowing attack took a shoot into the far bottom corner off target.
Our domination became more clear in the second half with some chances for Konovalov who took a power long-range shot and opportunity for Pavel Mogilevets whose finish was not strong enough. There was also a chance with Sardar Azmoun's header from inside the box.
The denoeument happened in the first additional extra time as Aleksandr Ryazantsev our former player who had spent the best part of his professional career at FC Rubin scored an own goal after a corner delivery.
Our boys have qualified for the Round of 32 to face FC Dinamo Moscow. The home side are to be drawn later.
