FC Rubin lost 1-0 to FC Lokomotiv in the first leg of the Olimp Russian Cup quarterfinal which took place at RZD Arena
FC Rubin had some good opportunities in the first half as Khoren Bayramyan and Pavel Mogilevets had good chances but their attempts were not accurate or powerful enough. FC Lokomotiv had a big chance after Egor Baburin´s mistake but Eder did not take advantage of it only to contribute right after the half-time as he flicked-on after Fernandes' cross to Vedran Corluka who put the ball in the net. It is the first time Egor Baburin has not been able to keep a clean sheet in a RPL match.
Despite the goal conceded, our boys pushed and took a dozen of shots which unfortunately were not accurate enough. The second leg will take in place in Kazan either on February 23 or 24 with Cesar Navas suspended due to his second yellow card in the current competition.
