print version

Sochi 3-1 Ufa
Sunday 12 September, Fisht Central Stadium 

Golas: Sochi - Cassierra 11', Noboa 36', Joaozinho 90+3'; Ufa - Agalarov 50'
Sent off: Ufa - Zhuravlev 83'
Man of the Match: Christian Noboa (Sochi) 

It took all of 11 minutes for Colombian striker Mateo Cassierra to open his account for Sochi, latching onto Ibrahim Tsallagov's through ball and smashing home from an awkward angle. 

Team last season's top scorer Christian Noboa added his second of the season by swivelling to wrong-foot Aleksandr Belenov. 

Although the first half had coasted by as comfortably as Sochi could have hoped, within five minutes of the restart their lead had been halved. Bojan Jokic's determined run down the left allowed him to cross towards Gamid Agalarov, whose brilliant header turned the ball home at an awkward angle to draw him level with Fedor Smolov as the RPL's top goalscorer. 

Yury Zhuravlev was sent off in the last 10 minutes, before with the very last kick of the match, substitute Joaozinho stepped up to curl an inch-perfect free kick into the corner. 

Sochi go second on 15 points, while Ufa stay 13th on five points.
