The encounter of the Mir Russian Premier League 27th round that was held at VTB Arena, ended in a 3:0 win for the visitors.
In comparison with the previous match at Khimki Slavisa Jokanovic made two changes to the starting eleven: Aleksandr Kutitsky replaced Mathias Normann in the midfield, while Saba Sazonov started as a centre-back instead of Roberto Fernandez being injured.
At the beginning of the match, both sides played intensively, and the fans had to wait for dangerous chances for quite a long time. In the 10th minute, Luka Gagnidze crowned a nice Dynamo combination with a clever backheel pass to Yaroslav Gladyshev, but Giorgi Shelia was ahead of the young winger and got the ball at the last moment.
Dynamo defenders experienced difficult minutes fighting against the powerful Mohamed Konate. First, Anton Shunin came out of the goal in time and neutralized the Burkinabe's one-on-one run, and later Milan Majstorovic managed to block the visitors' centre-forward from close range.
By the end of half an hour, Sazonov was injured in a tackle and was forced to leave the pitch for Normann. In his turn, Kutitsky dropped into the defensive line. Eli Dasa showed a lot of activity on the right wing, but most of his crosses towards the penalty area were interrupted by Andrey Semyonov.
Dynamo played not so well at the end of the first half and the Grozny side benefited from this occasion. Shunin denied Vladislav Karapuzov's shot in a nice jump. After the corner kick Bi Nene Gbamble won the position and headed the ball into the near corner. In addition to their common troubles, the White-Blues also lost their second centre-back due to injury - Majstorovic went to the dressing room accompanied by the doctor five minutes before the break.
Nicholas Marichal appeared on the pitch already with the start of the second half, which began with a great chance organized by Dynamo: Daniil Fomin sent Smolov one-on-one with Giorgi Shelia, but the goalkeeper did not allow the forward to score.
The Chechen players continued to provide Konate with passes, who terrorized Dynamo defence. In one of the episodes the referee whistled for an obvious offside, then in the second one the Burkinabe extended the visitors' lead.
Immediately Gagnidze and Arsen Zakharyan left the pitch for Konstantin Tyukavin and Nicolas Ngamaleu. Dynamo started playing faster and soon had a cool chance to cut the lead. Fomin was just seeing the ball into the back of the net, but Vladimir Ilyin prevented him from scoring.
The Akhmat side continued to organize dangerous counterattacks: first, Konate struck the post. In the next attack Karapuzov rolled the ball to Vladimir Ilyin, who did not miss the target. In the remaining time, Tyukavin failed to convert two assists made by Ngamaleu and Dasa.
Dynamo stay seventh on 42 points in the table. In the next fixture the White-Blues will play against Torpedo on the road on May 20.
