Volgograd "Rotor" beat "Legion" from Makhachkala with a score of 2:0
On March 18, Volgograd hosted the match of the 20th round of the Russian Football Championship among the teams of the Second League.
The Legion football club from Makhachkala hosted Rotor at the Volgograd Arena. For the Blue-and-Blues, the match became an away match only formally, since the Dagestan club, due to the unavailability of its field, asked to transfer the game to Volgograd.
In the first half of the meeting, the advantage was completely on the side of Volgograd. After several saves of the Legion goalkeeper, the Blue-and-Blues opened the scoring in the 38th minute. The goal was scored by Sergei Obivalin.
In the second half, Rotor earned a penalty during a corner kick - Sergei Zuykov was knocked down in the penalty area. The victim himself undertook to implement the 11-meter kick and very confidently doubled the lead.
In the rest of the game, Legion made several dangerous attacks, but failed to score. The game ended with the score 2:0 in favor of Rotor.
