Lokomotiv Moscow will go to winter break in low spirits after suffering an unexpected 1-0 loss to visiting Volga Nizhny Novgorod.

­Lokomotiv Moscow 0-1 Volga Nizhny Novgorod  

Volga took the lead on the 39th minute as Aleksandr Kharitonov found Shamil Asildarov’s head with a cross.

Lokomotiv spent most of the second half on the attack, with Felipe Caicedo having the best chance to equalize, but the score remained unchanged.

The loss put an end to Loko’s winning three-game run, while Volga move six points further from the relegation zone.

“I wasn’t even thinking about victory,”
Mikhail Kerzhkov, Volga’s keeper, told Sportbox.ru. "Lokomotiv are a good team, with great players in the lineup. Moreover, in recent meetings they were head and shoulders above all of their opponents. And they were playing at home. In general, a draw would’ve been good, but the win is just great.”

Kuban Krasnodar 0-0 Alania Vladikavkaz

There were no goals scored in this one, but it was still a heated a battle that saw three red cards.

Zelao was sent off for a second yellow in the end of the first half and Aleksey Kozlov left his side with nine men on the 80th.

Despite outnumbering their rivals for nearly half the match, Alania couldn’t score, and also lost a player, with Aslan Dudiev being sent off two minutes from time.

Amkar Perm 0-2 Krylia Sovietov

It just wasn’t Amkar’s day as the hosts scored an own goal after just five minutes of play, thanks to Ivan Cherenchikov's clumsiness.

Then the Perm side missed a speedy counterattack from Krylia Sovietov and an unmarked Aleksandr Eliseev made it 0-2.

All Amkar’s hopes of coming back into the game were gone already in the first half, after Andrey Semenov was sent off for the second yellow.
