The central match of the week 10th was characterized by a good attendance, in particular the two sectors of Lokomotiv fans at Khimki Arena were almost full of people.
Regarding the starting line-ups, there wasn't any big surprise. Corluka played his 100th match for Lokomotiv, while Durica returned being on the bench after the long injury.
The game started on high levels and only after 10 minutes, 'Railroaders' could have taken the lead with Alan Kasaev, but Akinfeev made a good save.
Five minutes later, CSKA answered with Panchenko, who earned a doubtful penalty that was scored by Doumbia. However, Lokomotiv didn't give up and thanks to another penalty (earned by Kolomeytsev), they were able to draw the score with Niasse.
During the first half, Lokomotiv was the most dangerous team on the field, in particular Niasse could have scored the goal of 1:2 with an amazing action, but Akinfeev saved again CSKA in the end.
In the second half, Loko tried more to keep the possession and the 1:1. Guilherme played a wonderful match and many times he saved Lokomotiv from the defeat, first from Tosic and then from Doumbia.
Ten minutes before the final whistle, Karasev sent off Corluka after the Croatian defender protested for a not whistled foul. As a consequence, Mykhalyk replaced Niasse and Lokomotiv played again more defensively.
However, Lokomotiv defended well the draw and despite everything, 'Railroaders' will stay at the second place in the RPL table.
