The most important events of Sunday in the RPL. The crisis of “Spartak” and the elegant return of Romashchenko

Date: May 28, 2024 Time: 19:45:31

On Sunday, August 20, the 5th round of the RPL ended with three games. The main event was the “derby of the two capitals” in Moscow – the confrontation between “Spartak” and “Zenith”. We talk about the most interesting of this and other matches of the day in our traditional review.

What happened at the RPL on Saturday:

The most important events of Saturday in the RPL. An unexpected leader and the Karpin fiasco

Zenit showed the Spartak football championship

For the first time in a long time, Spartak faced the game with Zenit, if not as a favourite, then at least with no less chance of winning. It had been a while since the rojiblancos were ahead of the blue and whites in the RPL table before a face-to-face match. If Guillermo Abascal’s team had beaten Sergei Semak’s team, then for many it would have become the main contender for gold medals.

However, the football championship in the match “Spartak” – “Zenith” was shown not by the hosts, but by the guests. Pretty unexpected, considering how the Petersburgers spent the start of the season. In the first half, Semak’s team, with the exception of the game’s debut, successfully got out of the rival pressure and forced the rojiblancos to make mistakes with their pressure. Blue-white-blue created several scoring chances, and Wendel scored with a rebound from Jikia. Surprisingly, the Brazilian, who did not spend the “preseason” with Zenit, became the star of this meeting.

In the second half, when Semak’s team was already playing more to keep the score, Wendel scored a brace. The midfielder converted a brilliant through ball from Claudinho. The Brazilians continue to shine at Zenit, despite the departure of Malcolm.

The intrigue at the end was maintained with a penalty against Zenit. Barrios in his penalty area in a duel with Sobolev touched the ball with his hand, which he had not even seen. Only Sobolev and realized the 11 meters. But in injury time, Zenit’s trio of substitutes Sutormin, Erokhin and Cassierra built up the Saint Petersburg’s third goal, playing a one-out combination. The champion beat Spartak in the table by one point.

Interestingly, at the end of the match, Abaskal presented himself for defeat before judge Karasev.

“The result was influenced by Moses’ injury, and also by Karasev’s embarrassing decision to show Ignatov a yellow card in the ninth minute. What it is? We had chances, we attacked, but show this card. This killed the game, it killed the player, because Ignatov couldn’t press anymore. What is it?” – said the Spanish coach of Spartak.

Sobolev, for his part, was dissatisfied with the team’s state of mind for the “derby of the two capitals.” The attacker said harsh words:

“We play at Spartak, so expectations must always be the highest. Spartak must always fight for the titles. When a team plays like this and loses at home against Zenit with a score of 1:3 weakly and without desire… You can’t play like that at home, especially against Zenit. When you lose those games, you have to have a serious talk with everyone: with the coaching staff and with the players. Everyone needs to understand which team they are on.”

Evseev scored the first points in the championship

After four rounds, Vadim Evseev’s team remained the only one in the RPL without points. But on Sunday, Voronezh waited for Fakel’s first victory. We can say that the hosts tortured her in the match with Pari NN as they almost lost the majority win.

There was little football in the meeting between the teams of Evseev and Sergey Yuran, but there was a lot of passion. The ‘Torch’, as always on its difficult pitch, imposed a fight on the rival in every part of the field, threw the ball into the outside area a lot and struck at the first opportunity. However, Nizhny Novgorod held on for 74 minutes, and Alexandrov’s red card prevented them from drawing an equalizer from Voronezh. Stupid retirement that a young defender won. He usually received the first warning for the fact that, being outside the field, he threw the ball from the reserve “Pari NN”. The second – for a sharp foul.

With ten men, Pari NN could not resist: Fakel squeezed the opponent thanks to replacement forwards Markov and Dolgov. The first scored a typical header goal. The second made a one-on-one start in stoppage time. At the same time, Voronezh could fail with the score 1:0. It would be a great shame!

Romashchenko debuted with a win

Miroslav Romashchenko has a perfect debut as Akhmat’s head coach! In the first match, under the leadership of former assistant Stanislav Cherchesov (they worked together in Grozny), the team brought Orenburg home. After such a defeat in the Orenburg club, they can think about the future of Jiri Yaroshik, until the Czech goes to the RPL.

“Akhmat” made the result in fact in half an hour, scoring three goals. The account was already open in the ninth minute after a successful set piece – Timofeev was the most skillful in the definition. After that, the hosts winger Berisha scored the beautiful goal. These are the “scissors” in the economy of the Kosovars.

Ilyin became the author of Akhmat’s third goal. Berisha dispersed the attack, and the forward took the pass from him, dragged the ball into the penalty area and accurately hit the bottom. The defeat of Orenburg was completed by the newcomer from the southerners Camillus. The Brazilian scored in his second game in the RPL. Camilo got impressively into the penalty area and closed the cross.

“In a day and a half, we tried to convey tactical moments that were somewhere better today, somewhere worse, but we have to thank the players for what they heard,” said Romashchenko, commenting on his first win after returning to Akhmat.
