print version

Krylia Sovetov Samara 1-2 Ufa
Saturday 2 April, Solidarnost Arena

Goals: Krylia - Costanza 68’; Ufa - Zhuravlev 12’, Agalarov 87’
Man of the Match: Yuri Zhuravlev (Ufa)

After Khimki’s last-gasp win last night had lifted them off the bottom to leave Ufa at the foot of the table before kick-off today, the pressure was on the visitors to show character and impetus - and within 12 minutes Aleksey Stukalov’s men had responded through Yuri Zhuravlev.

A whipped Dmitry Kabutov free-kick from the right flank was flicked on by Oleg Ivanov’s glanced header for Zhuravlev to smack home a firm volley from a few yards out.

Despite seeing just 27% in the opening period, Ufa went into the break ahead and remained in front until midway through the second half. Anton Zinkovsky then whipped in an inswinging cross from the left flank, which Fernando Costanza met with a marvelous header to plant an unstoppable bullet into the corner - the Brazilian’s first goal for the club.

Krylia’s pressure continued without the second goal, and it came back to haunt them with just three minutes to go. Some sloppy defensive concentration allowed Gamid Agalarov to steal in and slam a close-range winner into the roof of the net.

Krylia drop to eighth on 32 points, while Ufa jump up to 14th on 21 points.
