Lokomotiv was defeated by Amkar in the 1/8 of the Russian Cup.
Before the game, each fans that brought with him a Lokomotiv's accessory or was simply worn by green could have attended the match for free. This was a clear strategy in order to guarantee the team a good support from the stands.
Amkar started the game very actively. They wanted to take a revenge for the 3:0 they suffered at Cherkizovo a couple of weeks ago and also to celebrate the 70th birthday of their coach Gadzhiev. After only 15 minutes, the 'Permyaki' kicked 5 corners and Prudnikov could have opened the score.
Lokomotiv relied on Maicon and Kasaev, but neither the Brazilian nor the Russian were good tonight.
After the break, Kasaev was replaced by Grigorjev, who immediately created a dangerous chance to Selikhov.
Thanks to the Amkar goalkeeper, the Gadzhiev's team was able to keep a clean sheet. The only goal of the match was scored by Georgiy Dzhikiya, who beat Abaev with an amazing free kick.
Then, Lokomotiv tried to draw the score, but both Skuletic and Niasse weren't accurate.
Lokomotiv was eliminated from the Russian Cup.
