In the closing match of the 2019 Parimatch Premier Cup FC Krasnodar and FC Spartak Moscow were competing for the trophy of the tournament. The first half was a fair contest with both teams betting heavily on attack and scoring a goal each. The goal of the Moscow team was canceled because of the offside, and rightfully so, while the black-greens scored one by the book and in a very beautiful way. On the 38th minute Olsson sent the ball to Ruslan Kambolov in the opposite box with a delicate hidden pass, and the Krasnodar rookie proceeded with a powerful shot under the crossbar of Maksimenko’s domain.
With one hour of the game played the Red-Whites made the score 1-1 in an equally spectacular way. Zelimkhan Bakayev fired the ball into the top corner of the net with a mighty salvo close to the corner of the penalty area. The tied score did not last more than a minute though. The Bulls immediately launched a classy combination on the right that reached its punchline when Suleymanov lured opposing players towards him and passed the ball to Petrov. The latter then centered the ball with a low cross, and Ari finally finished it with a well-calculated shot and a bounce on the goalpost.
This scored goal proved decisive in bringing a win to the team led by Murad Musayev. As a result, FC Krasnodar won all of its Parimatch Premier Cup games effectively collecting maximum possible points and gaining the trophy of the said tournament.
