print version

We have rounded up the key points from matchday eight.

Twice Andrey Panyukov has been on the pitch against Zenit and in both cases scored. In the last round, the Ural forward equalised in the 69th minute, and in March Panyukov scored a goal from the penalty spot, but then his side lost 7-1 in St. Petersburg. Once again, in October 2019, the player was in the squad for the match against Zenit, but did not make it on. In the 2017/18 season, the striker played 26 matches for Zenit-II in the FNL, where he scored 14 goals, and twice appeared for the main Blue-White-Sky Blue team, but did not score any goals.

Seven goals were scored by Krasnodar against Khimki as they set a personal RPL performance record. By scoring nine goals combined, the teams broke another Krasnodar record for total number of goals in one game. Previously, the southerners had scored no more than six goals in a match. They beat Mordovia Saransk 6-1 in September 2012, and Ural 6-0 in April 2016.

Spartak have now scored in 10 consecutive games in Kazan in the RPL. In the last round, Domenico Tedesco’s men beat Rubin 2-0, with the total goal difference in the Tatarstan capital for this period 17-9 in favor of the Muscovites. The last time Rubin kept a clean sheet was in an RPL home match against the Red-Whites in October 2011 when they pulled off a 3-0 victory.

Zenit haven’t lost to Ural in 15 RPL matches. Taking into account the last meeting, which ended 1-1,  Zenit have won 13 and drawn twice. The previous time - in August 2017 - also ended 1-1. Ural led after the first half thanks to a goal by Eric Bicfalvi, but in the 60th minute Aleksandr Kokorin equalised.

23 games passed between the last two goals of Magomed-Shapi Suleymanov in the RPL. He has not found the net since September last year, when he scored in the 63rd minute against Arsenal. On top of that, Suleymanov hasn’t had a direct goal contribution in his last 19 RPL games.

Anton Shunin earned 100 clean sheets for Dynamo. The matchday eight fixture against Akhmat was his 79th in the RPL, with 16 more in the FNL, four in the Russian Cup and one in the Europa League. Shunin made his debut for the Blue-Whites on 21 April 2007 in a 2-1 victory over Khimki, and seven days later he kept a clean sheet as Dynamo beat Luch Energiya 1-0.

Denis Kulakov and Roman Zobnin have played 150 RPL games. The Ural captain has been playing in the Premier Liga since the 2015-16 season; during this time, he has scored one goal and made 17 assists, spending an average of 88 minutes on the field. Zobnin made his league debut in 2013 for Dynamo in a match against Anzhi, before moving to Spartak in the summer of 2015. During his time in the RPL, Zobnin has scored seven goals and provided 10 assists.

Viktor Claesson had not scored for 481 days after a lengthy injury layoff before having a direct hand in four goals for the first time in the match against Khimki. He scored a double in the first half, and after the break gave two assists with his heel. Viktor scored the last goal before his injury against Rubin, when the southerners won 1-0 at home.

CSKA have now claimed 502 points in RPL away matches. The army team became the first in the league’s history to reach the 500-point mark. The match against Ufa was their 282nd away game. Of those, the army team have won 142, drawn 76 and lost 64. The closest pursuers of CSKA is Zenit. The St. Petersburg team has 490 points in away games.
