Today saw matchday two of the Russian Cup Elite Round, with nine Russian Premier Liga teams in action away to FNL 2 sides.

Dynamo Barnaul 0-1 Nizhny Novgorod

Nizhny Novgorod edged to a narrow win against Dynamo Barnaul thanks to an early strike from Ilya Berkovsky. The hosts are now out of the competition having lost their first Elite Round match to Fakel Voronezh. In the second half, veteran goalkeeper Andrey Sinitsyn made his debut for the visitors.

Nizhny Novgorod will play their final Elite Round fixture away to Fakel Voronezh.

Legion Dynamo Makhachkala 1-1 Ufa (0-2 on penalties)

Ufa suffered a major scare as they came within seconds of a humiliating defeat to their lower-league hosts. A goalless first half set up a dramatic end, as Legion Makhachkala took the lead through a Shamil Saaduev spot kick, leaving it up to Aleksey Nikitin to save Ufa with an equaliser in the fourth minute of time added on.

In the subsequent penalty shootout, Ufa keeper Aleksey Kuznetsov saved all four shots from the hosts as his team ran out 2-0 shootout winners.

Ufa will take on Alania Vladikavkaz away on matchday three.

Kairat Moscow 0-3 Akhmat Grozny

Akhmat had no such drama as they coasted to a comfortable 3-0 win in Moscow. Two penalties either side of halftime from Abubacar Kadyrov and Gabriel Iancu put them in charge, before Amir Aduev sealed the win 11 minutes from time.

Akhmat will take on Rotor Volgograd away on matchday three.

Leningradets 0-2 Krasnodar

A strong Krasnodar lineup was too strong for Leningradets to send the St. Petersburg-based FNL 2 side out of the Russian Cup. Aleksandr Chernikov put Krasnodar ahead just before half time, before Grzegorz Krychowiak made certain of the result just before the end of the game. Irakly Manelov made his first Russian Cup appearance, having only made his senior debut last weekend as a late substitute against Akhmat Grozny.

Krasnodar will play a local derby against Kuban away on matchday three.

Znamya Noginsk 0-10 Krylia Sovetov Samara

Krylia were rampant as they broke the Russian Cup scoring record to hammer Znamya Noginsk. Teenage sensation Sergey Pinyaev bagged his first goals for the club with a double, with Dmitry Tsypchenko scoring a hattrick, Ivan Sergeev claiming two, and Denis Yakuba, Daniil Lipovoy and Glenn Bijl completing the rout.

Krylia travel out to the far east to take on Enisey Krasnoyarsk on matchday three.

FC Saransk 1-1 Khimki (7-6 on penalties)

Khimki suffered a shock as they were beaten on penalties by FC Saransk. Aleksandr Dolgov had given the RPL visitors the lead early in the first half with an acrobatic volley, but later missed his penalty in the shootout after Radik Yusupov had equalised just after the hour mark. Aleksey Shebanov scored the decisive spot kick for the FNL 2 side.

Khimki will travel to take on Baltika Kaliningrad on matchday three.

Dynamo Bryansk 1-6 Arsenal Tula

Arsenal Tula blasted into a rapid three-goal lead inside 19 minutes of their clash against Dynamo Bryansk, thanks to strikes from Artem Sokol, Kirill Panchenko and Daniil Khlusevich. Dynamo Bryansk hit back on the stroke of half time, but by then Kings Kangwa had already extended the lead a minute earlier. After the break Zuriko Davitashvili and Alexandru Tudorie made it a comfortable win for the RPL side.

Arsenal Tula will play Veles Moscow away on matchday three.

Dynamo Stavropol 0-6 Dynamo Moscow

Eighteen-year-old Yaroslav Gladyshev capped his senior debut for Dynamo Moscow with a goal in a comfortable rout as reward for his prolific record for Dynamo 2.

Dynamo Moscow will take on Orenburg away on matchday three.

Chayka 1-0 Rostov

Chayka pulled off a major shock result by knocking out RPL side Rostov from the Russian Cup in their own stadium. The third-tier outfit took a first-half lead at the Rostov Arena through Ivan Oleynikov, and held on to win the tie, and by extension the group, having already beaten Torpedo Moscow on matchday one. 

Rostov will play Torpedo Moscow away on matchday three.
