Low start - Spartak and CSKA Moscow: Champions League

September 14 2006

That first round of the Champions League for the Russian teams. Matches in Port Bavaria and gave our coaches, experts and fans yet another dollop reflection.

If you lose Spartacists quite natural and predictable for several reasons, which will be discussed below, this is an impersonal game CSKA in Portugal is very alarming.

Spartacus been waiting for his trademark game, and then she sort of came, the last league matches the team has shown spectacular attacking football just like old times. The match with CSKA offered hope even in the most critically-minded professionals, however, is not such as to believe in the victory over the strongest clubs in Germany.

You can indefinitely sort of action on the field of certain players, but on Tuesday lost the first thing a coach, and only then the command. Fedotovsky "Spartacus" unlike last year's "starkovskomu," plays from the soul, but the class team appears, alas, is not it. Major mistakes that led to such a depressing defeat, it is too much self-confidence of the players and tactical rigidity coach.

After an absolutely equal to the first half, where Muscovites even had two hundred per cent point for scoring, red and white have decided that they can do anything. For that and were just bits. Coaching talent is the ability to adapt to the situation and the key point to make changes. At a time when the "Bavaria" retooled, and found the "Achilles heel" Spartacists Shtrantselya, Fedotov, so nothing has changed, continuing to play with a visor, for which he pays a terrible goal difference.

But this football team can succeed Fedotova, but for this line of attack should have at present a class striker. Alas, in "Spartacus" to date there is only Pavlyuchenko, Cavenaghi, Bazhenov, and all of them attacking the second plan and beaten to death on a case by case basis. Class team in everything and in the percentage of implementation of the moments, too, which proved Bayern.

Bayern Munich (Germany) - "Spartak" (Russia) - 4:0 (0:0)

Goals: Pizarro 48. Santa Cruz, 51. Schweinsteiger, 71. Salihamidžić, 85.

Bayern Munich: Kahn, Sagnol, Van Byuyten, Lucio, Lahm, Hargreaves, Van Bommel (Scholl 73), Schweinsteiger, Santa Cruz (Karimi, 81), Pizarro (Salihamidžić, 70), Podolski.

"Spartacus": Kowalewski, Iranek Shishkin (31), Stranzl, Zheder, Rodriguez, Mozart, Kovac (Bazhenov, 62), Titov, Kovalchuk (Torbinskiy, 77), Bystrov, Pavlyuchenko.

Ambitious Valery Gazzaev and his team are much higher in the Champions League than the Spartacus League, after all, a group of army is much weaker.

Before the match, FC Porto have lost several key players. To start a key player in the line midfield Raul Meireles: He injured his foot and was out for a long time, just one day before the match. Not long before that a similar injury received and Brazilian midfielder Ibson, and at the end of the flu left-back Marek Cech. All the cards were on the side CSKA Moscow.

The teams started fairly briskly, "port" their traditional arrangement of 4-3-3 and CSKA with its shuttle 3-4-2-1. In attacking army soloist Wagner, and helped him in this drawn back Carvalho and Dudu. And on the very first minute CSKA tried to take the reins in their hands breaking free kick and played the first corner, alas, to no avail. Quick goals to organize the team and could not.

What happened next with the red-blue is not clear, but the initiative passed completely over to the guests. First army saved the bar after hitting Anderson, then Adrian "forgiven" army, missing his head with a lethal range. Missed the talented Brazilian and recklessly throwing emerged from the gate Akinfeeva. Luck was entirely on the side of Muscovites.

As the curtain half and army team had a chance to open an account. Wagner pushed his way through several defenders and ran from eye to eye with Elton, but clearly

struck a blow, and the moment was lost.

beginning of the second half, CSKA's time to reverse the course of the duel, and even game, but it never happened. The entire second half could be called "tyagomotinoy", one team wants, but can not (FC Porto), and the other just kills the game (CSKA Moscow). If it were not for goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, CSKA would not have received this precious points.

Assertive Adrian, Gonzalez, who replaced Alan broke the defense army again and again, but the goalkeeper Russia was impenetrable. Zeros and left with zeros until the end of the match. Tradition does not play in Portugal CSKA supported, but honestly jumped.

FC Porto (Portugal) - CSKA Moscow (Russia) - 0:0 (0:0)
