Now Osinkin’s team focuses on the RPL.

Before the fifth round of the Russian Cup, the “Wings” found themselves in a catastrophic situation. Only one victory kept a real chance of reaching the tournament playoffs. Strangely enough, one of the leaders of the RPL and suddenly cannot enter the top three teams in the group. But it seems that Igor Osinkin set his priorities long ago: everything best is played in the RPL and everything else is secondary. The coach did not change the concept even in such an important match: Saltykov, Garre, Soldatenkov, Gorshkov and a couple more players from the starting lineup remained in reserve. That is why at the beginning it was difficult to count on a positive result.

“Akhmat” also did not finally solve the problem of qualification before the fifth round. They were only one point ahead of Krylia. So a possible defeat away from home complicated the situation. Furthermore, the emotional outburst after Romashchenko’s arrival stopped working: only three goals in the last five games. This trend was cause for concern.

But already at the start of the match, the Grozny team showed that the small number of goals was just a coincidence. We scored a goal in the second minute, something that doesn’t happen often. It all started with a mistake: Ivanisenia lost the ball in a simple situation and, through Konate, he ended up at the feet of Ilyin in the center of the area. He took the opportunity with confidence.

“Wings” immediately ran to recover. But all this did not end well. After all, in the eighth minute the hosts conceded the second. And again after the amorphous defense. Konate received the ball in the area and shot. It looked like Frolov stopped the shot, but the ball still went into the net.

At that moment it was necessary to see Osinkin. The coach did not understand what was happening to his team. Naturally, such a beginning is a psychological blow to his own expectations. When in the 10th minute you are losing 0-2 and you need to win, it is difficult to change anything. However, the hosts began to act with more confidence in defense; This is already a certain progress. At least they stopped letting us through.

They even scored in the 31st minute. Pisarsky passed the ball to Karpitsky, who made a great shot on goal. It is true that the referee then raised the flag: Pisarsky was offside when he received the ball. The “Wings” created another chance late in the half, when Yezhov made a great shot from the box. But he didn’t get it right.

It seems that already during the break the Wings had accepted defeat. And outside the Cup. This became evident in the substitutions: instead of throwing all the best into the attack, Osinkin removed only Rasskazov. At the same time, Romashchenko made three changes.

Akhmat took a strong rhythm after the break and could have repeated the scenario of the first half. But first Junior forgave Frolov and then the goalkeeper blocked Barach’s long-range shot. The Grozny team completely controlled the course of the match and created moment after moment: in the 64th minute Konate hit the crossbar, and in the next attack Akhmat scored the third: Semyonov jumped after a corner, but the first shot hit Karpitsky. He shoots and the ball is in the goal. This is already a defeat.

Then the Grozny team was able to bring the score to a completely indecent level, but did not take advantage of some more excellent chances. For the Wings, the second half became torture.

Samara was eliminated from the Russian Cup. The last game against Zenit doesn’t solve anything for them. But “Akhmat”, in case of beating “Baltika”, can even jump to second place, securing a place in the RPL Path playoffs.
