Stayed close to the halfway line from the left halfspace channel again in case of a quick counter, quickest to react to Nikita Krivtsov's punt forward, speed on the turn, great composure & cool finish.

He first hit target in the 85th minute, before he got his brace in stoppage time.
Both goals were alike as on both occasions he powered his way to goal to give the home team the cushion they needed to keep Lokomotiv at bay.
It underlined his pre-season form during which time he scored three goals in as many games.
Krasnodar, who are nicknamed ‘The Bull’, are now fourth in the standings with seven points from four matches, three points behind leaders Spartak Moscow.
