The first half of the match between FC Krasnodar and PFC Krylia Sovetov was played in a fight for the initiative. Both teams were trying to possess the ball a lot as they were creating occasional scoring chances. In one episode Safonov had to save his buddies after a point-blank shot from Sarveli. Then, within the space of a few minutes, Vilhena and Spertsyan tested the crossbar with Lomayev touching the ball in Vilhena’s case. On the 35th minute the Bulls scored an opener. Claesson placed his foot in a right spot meeting Kaio’s mighty salvo from afar. Unfortunately for the home team, the VAR interfered and canceled this goal since according to them Córdoba had been in an offside position obstructing Samara goalie’s view.

As a result, the opener ended up in the hands of the visitors. Petrov made a mistake passing the pigskin in the own box, while Sergeyev and Sarveli exploited this chance and netted the ball into an empty goal.

The Bulls rearranged themselves after the interval and fired a few shots that were dangerous enough. Lomayev coped with Krychowiak’s attempt though, and Claesson failed to kill the ball in a favorable situation. FC Krasnodar lost to PFC Krylia Sovetov at own ground and lost a chance to become one of the top three teams in the standings.
