There came their new signings, Serbian giant Stefan Sapic tipped the cross from Igor Smolnikov to break the deadlock. CSKA missed big chances, Bakhtiyar Zaynutdinov could not score to the empty net in the first half, Fedor Chalov hit the post after the half-time. The Armymen made 19 attempts during the game, only one shot went on target. Torpedo won the first home RPL match at Luzhniki in almost 16 years.
