Spartak looks desperate. The defeat in Sochi is not even surprising

Date: July 15, 2024 Time: 17:34:40

Spartak lost to Sochi, prolonging two failed series: the spring one and specifically with the southerners.

The Sochi team repeated the same starting lineup as in the match against Rostov (2-2). This is understandable: the southerners stopped the best team of the spring in the RPL. At Spartak, Klassen replaced the injured Zobnin and Bongonda replaced Medina. But the main thing is that Umyarov, who failed in the match against Dynamo, was again in the starting eleven – Nail even scored a penalty and generally looked extremely weak. And throughout the season. Apparently, God personally asks Abaskal about him.

The first minutes passed calmly. The hosts had more possession of the ball and got a couple of corners, but that was it. And in the 16th minute the Spartak team woke up. First, Sobolev entered the area from the left wing. His shot was blocked and Bongonda finished with a rebound on the grass: Zabolotny jumped and passed the ball to the corner. And then Zinkovsky, in the style of Robben, moved from the right flank to the center, dribbled past Kravtsov and shot into the far corner – Zabolotny played with his fists.

Shortly before the match we spoke with the Sochi goalkeeper:


“I go out into the field and there is a three-story carpet behind me.” From Zenit and Spartak to survival in the RPL

The southerners also created approaches and in the 26th minute forced Maksimenko to react. Attiyat-Allah ran down his home left flank and fired home. Guarirapa was waiting for this: he picked up the ball and shot dangerously into the near corner; Maksimenko saved him from the corner with his fingertips.

The duel a few minutes later was set up by Babich with a bad back pass. If it weren’t for the goalkeeper’s timely run out of the area, the Venezuelan would have found himself face to face with him. The third round took place in extra time, when Saúl weakly nodded his head after a corner: Alexander took the ball from the bottom corner.

There were other half chances, but the first half ended in nothing. And I don’t want to say it’s unfair.

At the beginning of the second half of the match, the teams were also balancing and not really threatening each other. In the 60th minute, instead of Bongonda and Ugalde, Medina and Ignatov came out to achieve the victory. This is not the first time Mikhail has released a game.

Moreno responded by castling Yusupov and Guarirapa against Miguel and Córdova. It was this pairing that almost immediately created the goal: the Venezuelan from the right sent a low shot to the far post, but the Brazilian did not have time to close it in a tackle.

In the 76th minute, Miguel finally achieved his goal. And not without Medina’s help. Jesús missed the ball after a long shot by Zabolotny. The ball reached the Brazilian, who ran down the left wing and crossed into the area for Attiyat-Allah. The Moroccan could only shoot accurately into the near corner from close range. Which is what he did.

A little later, a fight almost broke out on the field. Miguel (yes, him again!) hugged Khlusevich before Spartak’s free kick and Daniil pushed his opponent away. The skirmish grew cold. Both players received a yellow card.

The red and whites had enough time to recover. Useless. Córdova also hit the crossbar. The score was 1:0 on the scoreboard.

Spartak has never beaten Sochi as a visitor. Now from five attempts (four losses and one draw). The “Our Colosseum” of the south, as Dmitry Borodin once called “Fisht”, remains impregnable for the red and whites.

Meanwhile, Spartak have not scored in the RPL in four games this spring. And if it weren’t for Leshchuk’s “imports,” the statistics would have been even more discouraging. When you look at his attack attempts, it’s nothing surprising. Bongonda has not scored in 14 straight games. Ugalde does the same in five Premier League games. Simply brilliant. I wonder what excuses Abaskal will make now.

Igor Ledyakhov is already waiting for the appointment of Stanislav Cherchesov:


“Cherchesov is an ideal candidate for Spartak. Ledyakhov is sad looking at his home club
