Torpedo - Lokomotiv 0-1.


In the 13rd round of RPL, Lokomotiv was hosted by Torpedo in Ramenskoye. It's wasteful say that this is the principal game of the season for the team and fans. The last time that Lokomotiv and Torpedo played together was eight years ago and finally these two teams play again one against another.  

Compared to the victory in the derby against Dinamo, in Loko there was only one change, but very important: Vedran Corluka returned in the center of the defense after the disqualification instead of Nemanja PejčinovićIn Torpedo there was Diniyar Bilyaletdinov, grown up in Cherkizovo and former Lokomotiv captain. 

In the begin, the game was played principally in the midfield. After 4 minutes, Dame N'Doye kicked, but he was inaccurate.

The more our players started reaching the area, the more the Torpedo actions became rare. Our attacks missed of precision: Aleksander Samedov and Renat Yanbaev weren't be able to find N'Doye. 

The first dangerous chance for Torpedo arrived at 22' thanks to the efforts of Portuguese forward Viera, but his shot was taken by Ilya Abaev, on the reject Diniyar Bilyaletdinov missed the goal. 

Lokomotiv answered with an attack really dangerous. Manuel Fernandes found Samedov, who tried a combination with Taras Michalik which was stopped at the end.

At 33', Bilyaletdinov had a shot from the middle-distance, but Ilya Abaev sent the ball in corner. This was the last opportunity  before the rest.

The second half was the logical consequence of the first.  Lokomotiv started playing faster and using the free zone in Torpedo defense. 15 minutes after the start of second half, our team created a great chance. Alan Kasaev dribbled two defenders in the left wing and crossed a good ball, which was hit by Corluka. Zhevnov made a wonderful save.

A minute later, Loko scored! Boussoufa made a slalom in the center of the pitch and passed a beautiful ball to N'Doye, who dribbled a defender and beat  Zhevnov - 0:1! 

Soon Torpedo answered, but Abaev saved again on Stevanovic. The home-side tried to take the possession of the ball, but they didn't create anything dangerous. Lokomotiv, instead, played balanced, both in defense and in attack. 

Some minutes before the final whistle, Loko had to score the second goal. Roman Pavlyuchenko entered in the pitch and after an assist Maicon, also from the bench, hit the bar! This gave some minutes of hope to black-withes, but they didn't create other chances and so Lokomotiv won away against Torpedo.
