Dynamo Moscow v Amkar Perm 29/04/2016


It was a more than less memorable match for both teams on a Friday night in Moscow, as there was a severe lack of goals…

In a mostly dull first half, the best chance of the first half came in the 31st minute, when a looping ball was sent over the Dynamo defence and then hit sweetly on the volley by Amkar Perm’s midfielder – Balanovich – Only to smash off the post and rebound to Prudnikov, who’s low shot was comfortable for the Dynamo Moscow keeper.

Moments after this chance from Amkar Perm, in the 38th minute, Dynamo’s midfielder, Tashayev, showed some good close control to create space for himself to hit a low drive, Amkar’s keeper, Selikhov handled poorly, but quickly threw himself on the ball to prevent any danger.

Shortly after this, Dynamo’s Montenegro striker, Beciraj, chested down a difficult ball to smash on the half volley from outside the area, only to see it cannon back off the bar. Dynamo Moscow unlucky to not be ahead.

The second half mostly became a scrappy affair, both teams showing great strength and determination, but no moment of skill to break the deadlock. Dynamo looked the more likely, always threatening from the counter attack, but Amkar stayed resilient.

Amkar Perm sit in 11th place, just above Dynamo Moscow at the end of this game.amkardynamo
