Nicholson calmed the game after great volley, and in the final minutes two youngsters, 18-year-old Pavel Meleshin and 22-year-old Pavel Maslov, scored their debut goals in RPL. Players followed the steps of their fathers, Aleksey Meleshin and Evgeny Maslov also scored in the top Russian division. Another 18-year-old Daniil Zorin made first league appearance and marked it with assist to Meleshin. These five goals led to the biggest win for Spartak this season.
