6 November 2021. Moscow. VTB Arena Stadium. 6 degrees. Overcast.

FC Krasnodar and FC Dynamo Moscow are two of the most efficient teams in the Russian Premier League, as their attacking lines are currently the second-best and the third-best this season. However, their competitive meeting tonight began without a plethora of scoring chances. Both sides were eager to do pressing against each other in the midfield, and they also defended in a very disciplined way in the defensive third.

A couple of regular saves by Safonov, a good high serve to Ionov that Shunin interrupted in time, and two attempts from afar by Viktor Claesson willing to score his first goal of the season made up the highlights of the first half worthy of remembering.

The Bulls resumed the game after an interval in a powerful way… but they failed to score. Shunin saved his team twice. He parried a shot from Krychowiak with his chest, and then his perfectly-timed foot action rendered harmless a one-on-one situation with Spertsyan. As for the Moscow team, they did make good use of their own chance when a low cross by N'Jie to the far goalpost was met by Grulyov. The opener remained a single goal of the match, and the Bulls have suffered their third consecutive loss.
