The Zambian made the starting 11 alongside brother Evans, and it was his successful comeback after three-game suspension.

Adding Vladimir Ilyin to the attacking line in the half-time, Krasnodar played more actively and increaded the number of shots from two to nine. Eduard Spertsyan ran into the box and was stopped with a foul, and after VAR review referee Sergey Ivanov awarded the visitors with the penalty. Spertsyan took a shot, and it was saved by Mikhail Levashov, but VAR reviewed the foul from the keeper, as he was not stepping on the goalline. So Spertsyan got a second chance and buried the ball into the left corner.

Evgeny Lutsenko and Djordje Despotovic came into the last minutes to snatch the first win this year, Kings Kangwa earned a straight red card for Egor Sorokin after Krasnodar defender fouled him near the box, but their activity was not enough.
