Kerzhakov walks away from defeat, Kokorin scores to win, Cherchesov draws

Date: April 21, 2024 Time: 01:54:46


Alexander Kerzhakov moved to Cyprus last week and became a neighbor of his former Russian teammate Alexander Kokorin. Both live in the small city of Limassol with a population of 240 thousand inhabitants.

Let’s remember that both were strikers at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. And they just scored a goal: Kerzhakov – Korea (1:1), Kokorin – Algeria (1:1). And there was another defeat of Belgium – 0:1.

So, Kerzh made his debut as a head coach yesterday in the 24th round. His 10th-ranked “Karmiotissa” received 11th-ranked “Enosis”. True, the gap between the neighbors in the table was 9 points. This gap remained, but Karmiotissa escaped defeat only in the 89th minute. Munir Ael-Alushi converted the penalty – 1:1.


Aris also played at home, in Limassol, but today. The opponent is Nea Salamina, she is in 5th place (37 points). “Aris” was 4 (46).

Kokorin received a yellow card already in the 3rd minute and immediately converted a penalty. Two minutes later, Gomis scored the second, and in minute 36 there was an own goal: 3:0. This is where it all ended. There were no goals scored in the second half.

Now the 31-year-old Russian striker has 9 goals, he ranks second in the scorer list. The leader is Jairo Maceda from Paphos (16 goals).

The position of the teams on Saturday night in Division A is as follows.

1. AEK (Larnaca) – 54, 2. APOEL – 52, 3 Aris – 49. 4. Paphos – 48 … 10. Karmiotissa – 27 …

Tomorrow APOEL welcomes Doksu Kat in Nicosia, who ranks 12th. AEL (Limassol) (8th place) will play at home with the leader – AEK (Larnaca).


“Ferencvaros” at home took the closest pursuer “Kecskemet”, but again failed to win. Adama Traore opened the scoring at minute 37, Horvat equalized at minute 53. There were no more heads.

It was the 20th round, the gap between the teams was 14 points, after a tie remained.

Stanislav Cherchesov’s team is unlikely to lose first place. Concerned that this is the second draw in a row. Before that, he was 0:0 with “Kishvarda” on the road. Both teams are in the top three. That is, the matches with the leaders of Ferencváros are difficult.

But ahead of the Hungarian champion is the main test of the season – 1/8 final of the Europa League. It is enough to look at the composition of the 1/16 final to understand that Cherchesov’s team, to put it mildly, does not seem like a favorite against any of the other rivals.
