Goalkeeper of the FC Rubin Sergey Ryzhikov, who saved penalty and became one of the heroes of the last match against FC Ufa, has commented this game.
— Very important win. We were playing against our neighbors in tournament table. It’s a pity, the first away win came only in the 13th tour. Talking about match, we made this game more difficult by ourselves. Opponent’s player got a red card, and we scored two goals. After conceded goal in injury time lost heart a little bit. FC Ufa took courage and understood own chance. Fast goal in the second half confirmed that. Fortunately, Elmir’s [Nabiullin] slalom-like running helped us to win the match. After that, I think, we were controlling the game. Yes, it was hard, there was a penalty kick, but FC Ufa tried a lot, they have a good and organized team. We have won. The main thing is three points. Congratulations to all fans and players! Going forward.
