The effectiveness of the RPL has decreased. Dynamo and Krasnodar did not score goals


Dinamo took to the pitch of their stadium with the idea that a victory against Krasnodar would see them share first place in the table with Zenit, who beat CSKA (2-1) at home. It should be noted that “buli” has been one of the favorite dishes in recent years. The Blue and Whites have won their last five RPL matches in this clash, with their last loss coming in 2018.

As for the starting eleven, the coaches have given up on big feelings. Slavisha Jokanovic replaced Daniil Lesovoy and Konstantin Tyukavin with Daniil Fomin and Arsen Zakharian compared to the match in Samara, but the second two are clearly closer to the base. Everything is logical.

Oleksandr Storozhuk also poisoned all the strongest who faced Lokomotiv last weekend (3-0). Except that Nikita Krivtsov came out in the middle instead of Mikhail Banyac.


Krasnodar don’t often have the midfield efficiency to dominate possession this season, but Dinamo are now one of those who focus on moving the ball forward rather than rolling it up and down. Yes, and Muscovites press much less than with Sandro Schwartz. But that doesn’t stop them from regularly exploding, forcing the opponent to make mistakes. Thus, in the opener, Matvey Safonov was forced to pass to someone else, but Vyacheslav Grulev was unable to make a quick decision and missed the opportunity.

Visually, the “citizens” were in the lead in the first half (71 percent of the ball), but this was not confirmed by the sharpness of the entrances to the penalty area. The hosts seemed more determined and holistic. The Krasnodar players mostly received shots from outside the penalty area, and the sharpest one was the one who met Sabu Sazonov on the way, from whom the ball almost flew into the nearest corner.

It is significant that in the first 45 minutes, Aleksandar Chernikov had only 9.9% possession. more than Alexei Ionov, Olakunle Olusegun and John Cordoba combined (9.4%). But he would praise Storožuk. The coach received a very ambiguous and uneven composition in terms of the level of players, but he is putting together a team of players that is familiar to fans of Krasnodar and Sergey Galitsky.


Jokanovic didn’t like the look of the match. During the break, he started Denis Makarova instead of the ineffective Vyacheslav Grulev, who was more useful in space. There was a bit more movement in the Dynamo attack, but Christian Ramirez was up against more technical opponents and his dribbling attempts were not impressive for the Dynamo.

The match was split from both sides. No one was good enough at the football they chose for themselves. Dynamo look strange without the ball. At least after what we saw last season. The players’ strongest qualities clearly lie elsewhere. Arsen Zacharian himself is technical as hell, but not quick enough to escape on the counter-attack. He is comfortable with the ball at his feet at all times.

Overall, the game was pretty boring and only had one emotional outburst at the end. Sergey Volkov was injured, but his partners did not notice him and gave him a pass. He showed that he was not ready to play, lost the ball and it started with a stunning attack that Dmitry Skopintsev completed: he scored two and shot into the near corner but could not outwit Matvei Safonov. Without waiting for a corner, Krasnodar rushed towards the opponents to settle things. And they can be understood. It’s one thing when a football player is lying on the sidelines, not ready to play, but Volkov pointed out that it is impossible to continue the game in the episode. And he didn’t lie: Yegor Sorokin immediately entered as a substitute.

As a result, the match naturally ended in a draw. Dynamo’s victories are constantly alternating with draws, and Krasnodar can be proud of not losing three rounds in a row.
