Terek’s new coach, Ruud Gullit, has suffered his second defeat in two Russian Premier League games as the Grozny team lost 2-0 away at Rubin on Matchday 2.
Rubin Kazan 2-0 Terek Grozny
Rubin caught the visitor on counterattack for the opening goal in the 34th minute
Vladimir Dyadyun found unmarked Gokdeniz Karadeniz in front of the Terek goal, with the Turk having little problems in finding the back of the net, 1-0.
Rubin made it 2-0 through Christian Noboa, seven minutes after the restart and then had few problems in maintain the winning score until the referee’s final whistle.
Rubin have won their second game of the season, while Terek have zero points and no goals in the bag after two games.
It has to be noted, that the charges of Dutch football legend, Gullit, had some very difficult opponents in those games, which were defending champions Zenit (0-1) and bronze medalists from Kazan.
Amkar Perm 1-0 Lokomotiv Moscow
The visitors spent most of the game in attack at Zvezda stadium, but failed to upset in-form keeper Sergey Narubin.
Amkar scored the only goal of the match in the 26th minute following a corner kick. Loko’s netminder, Gulherme, failed to get the ball and Amkar’s striker Stevica Ristic was the quickest in the hustle on the goal line, 1-0.
FC Tom 0-1 Kuban Krasnodar
Kuban got the winner with seven minutes remaining to play in Tomsk as substitute striker Sergey Davydov was first on the rebound after the ball ricocheted from the post, 1-0.
Just like Terek, Tom have had a disastrous start to the season, failing to collect a single point and score a single goal in two games.
