Sebastian’s late header brings Dynamo a thrilling win

The away match of the RPL second round ended with a 3-2 win of the Moscow side.

Sandro Schwarz made one change in the starting line-up – Clinton N’Jie replaced Lesovoy on the left wing. The heavy downpour of rain impacted the game and both teams needed time to adapt to weather conditions and the artificial pitch.

The White-Blues opened the score due to a penalty that Daniil Fomin converted after a foul on Tyukavin. Five minutes before the break Ufa were penalized once again after an inaccurate tackle performed by Miletić on Parshivlyuk. The host side couldn't cope with light-footed Dynamo players when the Muscovites organized fast attacks.

In the second half the White-Blues kept pressure on the opponent’s team continuing to create nice chances ahead. Zakharyan could score twice, but firstly, he was stopped by Belenov and then missed targeting the goal after a brilliant cross by N’Jie.   

With quarter of an hour to go, the Ufa newcomer Ruslan Fishchenko was sent off for a second yellow card with the visitors seemingly comfortable. However, Ufa came from behind when Agalarov benefited twice from the defensive lapses. Dynamo players had the last word in the match – Szymanski’s pin-point header shattered the hosts’ dreams. The Moscow side earned a thrilling win and headed the standings alongside with Rubin Kazan.  

In the next match Dynamo will play against CSKA on August 8.
