In the first game of Miodrag Bozovic as Head Coach, Lokomotiv had a new captain. Guilherme and Roman Shishkin were on the bench, Dmitrij Tarasov is recovering after the injury, and so in Cherkizovo Aleksander Samedov wore the band. About the first XI, there weren't big changes: in the midfield played Aleksander Sheshukov plus Manuel Fernandes, who worked box-to-box; back the striker there was Mbark Boussoufa. The only forward was Oumar Niasse.
The first chance was for Terek: Ailton kicked, but Ilya Abaev parried well. The home-side answered immediately and thanks to a Semenov's fault, Niasse scored the 1-0 after a cross of Samedov!

In the second half of the first time, the game was quite funny. Terek tried to score the 1-1 with Utsiev, but Vitalij Denisov anticipated all the players, included Abaev. Loko were again close to the second goal with Niasse: but Godzyur took easily his kick after a good action between Samedov and Boussoufa.
Before the break, Terek reached to draw the game. After a corner, Vedran Corluka tried to throw away the ball in the fray, but he hit Niasse and the ball finished in the goal.
In the second half, the two team continued attacking. Terek hit the cross with Aissati and on the reject, Abaev saved red-greens on former Lebedenko.
