In a dominating display to which the score was flattering to the opposition, Spartak devoured Lokomotiv 2-0 in the Moscow derby at Luzhniki Stadion of match-day thirty-one of the Sogaz Championship of Russia. With the result, the Red-Whites gain important points on both CSKA and Zenit and are now only six points removed from the top of the table.

Returning from the international break, Spartak manager Valeriy Karpin was without Rafael Carioca due to suspension and ushered twenty-one year old Aleksandr Zotov into the starting berth. A cagey start marked the opening of the always spirited Moscow derby saw opportunities come in a flourish with Artem Dzyuba launching a quick counter that saw Emmanuel Emenike fight off the Lokomotiv defenders before his low effort from the edge of the area denied by the ‘keeper. Later Aiden McGeady showed his attacking vision with a deft cross from the left side of the area intended for Emmanuel Emenike that was blocked before Lokomotiv managed their own riposte. Coming via Alberto Zapater’s corner on the right, Manuel da Costa’s header appeared destined for the net before goalkeeper Andriy Dykan stretched out fully to maintain the deadlock. Following the brief advance, Spartak dictated the run of play with pace and guile and broke the deadlock four minutes shy of the half-hour with Dmitri Kombarov once again playing the role of architect. In a swift counter, the intensely talented twenty-four year-old midfielder deftly chipped the ball over the Lokomotiv defenders for Emmanuel Emenike, with the striker then poking his seventh goal since joining Spartak into the net. With the faithful singing out his name, the day was not over for the striker but first it would be up to Andriy Dykan to thwart two noteworthy Lokomotiv advances. Coming at the forty-first minute Sergei Parshivlyuk made a brilliant run from the right into the area before shuttling the ball to Emmanuel Emenike, who after showing power in holding off Manuel da Costa’s turned to fire a beaming effort into the top right corner of the net. Up by two, Spartak was in complete control of the proceedings as the match went to the break.

Nine minutes after the re-start, Mr. Karpin added Kirill Kombarov for Aiden McGeady as Spartak went out the task of locking down the result. As the half proceeded, Artem Dzyuba pushed the ball forward to Kirill Kombarov on the right with his low cross to the back post a step beyond an on-rushing Emmanuel Emenike. Later, Artem Dzyuba was set-up man again this time as he shifted the ball to Emmanuel Emenike on the right but this time Lokomotiv ‘keeper Guilherme managed to stop the ball with his outstretched leg. The Railwayman goalkeeper was doing yeoman duty as Spartak continued its assault as he parried Ari’s close range header just before the ball cross the line but play was decidedly one way. With the contest effectively fait accompli, the Spartak tactician summoned Dmitri Kayumov for Artem Dzyuba at the seventy-ninth minute the teen’s third appearance of the campaign, with Aleksandr Sheshukov for Dmitri Kombarov in the shortly thereafter. Time ticked down and with the final whistle Spartak claimed an impressive 2-0 victory over Lokomotiv in the Moscow derby.
