Lokomotiv defeated Ufa in the sixth round of the Russian Premier League, winning the fourth away game in a row.
Compared to the game against Terek, the technical staff decided to make two changes in the starting line-up: Pejcinovic replaced Logashov, while Kolomeytsev took the place of Miranchuk due to tactical reasons.
At the eve of the match, the team remembered the dreary atmosphere there was in Ufa before the Russian Cup's round. Today, everything was different with no fog. In particular, we should underline the presence of a banner in the Lokomotiv's fans sector that celebrated Igor' Cherevchenko for his 41st birthday.
Lokomotiv had played for the first time in the season with the green kit, which is loved by the fans. 'Railroaders' took the lead after five minutes with Niasse, who took advantage from a inattention of the Ufa's defense and beat Yurchenko. However, this goal didn't influence the home side that tried to score the 1:1 with a powerful shot of Igboun, but Guilherme was careful. A few minutes before the break, Lokomotiv doubled the score: Kolomeytsev served a fantastic ball to Kasaev, who scored on the corner with a beautiful shot.
In the second half, Ufa tried to change something ans as a consequence Kolyvanov put in the field Zinchenko and Pourie. However, this was vain: Igboun was sent away and so Lokomotiv was able to control the game. Five minutes before the final whistle, Pejcinovic scored the third one with a great header.
Lokomotiv won the fourth away game of the season in a row and took the second place in the table.
