SKA did not concede any goals before the game in Saratov.
“Falcon” started energetically in the new season Melbet First League. Yes, at first the team lost away from home against Rodina (0-4). But then Saratov beat “Shinnik” (3:2). And in the third round, Denis Boyarintsev’s team was expected by one of the favorites of the First League – SKA-Khabarovsk. And “Falcon” has created a new sensation!
The first part was played with relative equality. SKA had more possession of the ball (59%-41%), but Sokol continued with shots on goal (2-2). Despite the advantage of the Khabarovsk team in terms of names, this was not felt against the background of a newcomer to the First League.

In the 57th minute, Sokol opened the scoring: forward Danila Yezhkov intercepted the ball from the defender of the guests and, together with a partner, went out together over one defender. After that, the striker gave a pass to Vladlen Babaev, who shot at the gates of Vladimir Sugrobov. An unexpected turn of events! The most interesting thing is that even after the missed goal, SKA did not fully take the game under their control. The Falcon attacked boldly, didn’t “park the bus,” playing well for a league rookie. And he even missed a couple of good moments in attack. As a result, the second home win in a row and an intermediate third place in the table! Yes, after tomorrow’s matches, he will most likely go down, but did anyone expect to see Sokol so high after three rounds?
First League Classification
Ahead of Denis Boyarintsev’s team is a trip to Moscow for a match with Torpedo. The black and white are one of the main favorites in the First League. If Sokol scores points here, too, maybe we should call the Saratov team a candidate for a high place at the end of the season?
