Sunday’s meeting in Moscow ended with the score 2:2. Beka Beka received a second yellow card in the 65th minute for unsportsmanlike conduct.
“The game did not go according to plan, we conceded an early goal and played in the minority. But I’m glad that Lokomotiv scored an attacking move and managed to defend a draw. The episode with the removal of Beck Beck has not yet been studied in detail, but I think that a high-level player is not should succumb to provocations. Maradishvili’s goal in the end is the cherry on the cake, this is a consequence of the combinations worked out in training. I’m glad that Lokomotiv played a draw,” Zinnbauer said.
“The game was often interrupted, there were many pauses. Some pauses went on for three minutes, more substitutions. I think it was possible to give more extra time. I approached the referees, but it seems that they are not used to listening. All these stops in the match are prolonged It knocks down the rhythm of the game, such pauses are unjustified,” added the head coach of Lokomotiv.
