The Bulls opened the match program of the third training camp with two scrimmages on the same day. The mixed squad of FC Krasnodar players tested themselves against FC Krylia Sovetov Samara in the morning, and in the afternoon the lineup composed mostly of the first team representatives met Molde FK from Norway.
The scrimmage against the Krylia team, featuring these experienced guys like Sergey Ryzhikov and Aleksandr Anyukov, went with the black-greens generally having an upper hand. Both teams could have scored an opener in the first half though. In particular, a shot by Ivanov that made the ball hit the second goalpost was followed by a spectacular hit on the crossbar after an attempt by Maksim Kutovoy.
The only goal scored in the game proved to be a splendid one. Ilya Vorotnikov and Kutovoy launched a successful effort to intercept the ball next to the opposite box, and the number 37 fired the pigskin directly into the far top corner of the net. In the remaining time both Chernikov and Khalnazarov had a chance to double their team’s lead, but the final score remained unchanged.
