Appeared yesterday, the statistics of the match of 23 Matchday of the Russian Premier League between “Sochi” and “Rostov”, which ended with the score 10:1.
The home team controlled the ball a little more – 55% against 45%. At the same time, “Sochi” often shot on goal “Rostov” – 43 strike against 2. On average, out of mind-boggling situation for a modern professional football, when one team attacked the other blocked one shot every two minutes of game time!
The shots on target stats are also unimaginable – 25:1. Interestingly, most of their attempts players “Sochi” carried out from outside the penalty area.
We will remind, “Rostov” had to put a youthful squad for this match, because the first team was discovered the cases of coronavirus. In addition, 17-year-old goalkeeper Denis Popov reflected from the penalty spot from Sochi, having made 15 saves, a record for the RPL this season. The experts recognized Popov’s best player of the match in which he… missed 10 goals!
Note that the “Rostov” is on the 4th place in the standings and actually claim a place in European competitions, “Sochi” – on the 9th.
Was happening yesterday in RPL with something even remotely resembling a football with a decent level of competition and compliance with competition principles? The question is rather rhetorical…
