Ufa is one of the most convenient opponents for Dynamo in the Russian Premier League. Considering all the official matches between these teams, the Moscow club has never been defeated. In addition, a successful two-legged series without losses for the “white-blue” allowed us to reflect on their victory. However, the Muscovites were unable to win this meeting.
Dynamo played attacking football from the first minutes. Already in the 6th minute, the main referee of the meeting, Vitaly Meshkov, awarded a penalty to Ufa’s goal, but after a while he canceled his decision using the VAR system. This only angered the Dynamo players, and they continued to create chances – even Rykov came forward. The defender beat his head perfectly in the 27th and 37th minutes, but Belenov saved the Ufa goal. He also had a chance to score N’zhi, but in front of the gate he shot wide of the mark. The guests did not have the opportunity to distinguish themselves.
Before the meeting with Ufa, the “white-blue” scored 6 goals in 4 matches. In all games, Dynamo excelled precisely in the first halves. Despite many chances, the Moscow club scored in the first half of the meeting, thereby destroying their positive statistics.
Lost Maximilian and the good Igbun
After the break, the hosts continued to press. And Maximilian Philip still could not find himself on the field. If in the first half he played as an attacking central midfielder in the (4-2-3-1) scheme, then in the second half of the meeting the head coach of the hosts Dmitry Khokhlov changed the scheme to 4-4-2, where Maximilian was the second striker. Despite this, the German did not manage to mark in this match.
But Igbun was able to do it. He first appeared in the main team of Dynamo and tried to distinguish himself for the club. However, the footballer squandered all the moments that he had. In two halves, he did not convert many chances, as if he did not want to score against the former club.
“Khokhlov, go away!”
Although Dynamo had a lot of chances, they never managed to score. As a result, annoying zeros on the scoreboard. At the end of the game, the fans were charging “Khokhlov, go away!” and “Don’t dishonor the name“ Dynamo ”. And at the end of the match, they did not do the roll call with the players, famous since the FNL. After such a match, it is not clear what the Moscow team will expect in the next game against Sochi.
Thus, after a home draw, Dynamo remains in 11th place in the RPL standings. Ufa continues to occupy the 9th position.
