Sergey Ovchinnikov: The first half was not bad, but at the beginning of the second we lost concentration and missed two counterattacks
— What did you try to achieve by substitutions of Dzagoev and Ejuke?
— Head coach makes decisions on substitutions. In my opinion, Ejuke looked nice, sharpen attacks, but again, the head coach makes substitutions.
— PFC CSKA switches to two forwards when the game is not going well. Does the team have a different plan?
— We did not switch to the game with two forwards, Chalov played on the right. The variation may be different, the game develops in different ways, and this is what we should base on.
— Ilya Shkurin scored again, coming out in the starting XI. Has he deserved a place in the first team?
— He deserved to come out in starting line-up due to his work. His condition allowed him to be on the pitch for the entire 90 minutes. I asked him to be active for the entire match. He scored a goal and generally played well. He gave us reason to believe that we can count on him as a starting XI player in the next matches with his performance.
— Why does CSKA's long bench not improve the game twice in a row?
— I do not have an answer to that question. Players who come out as substitutes must be active. Chalov tried, but not everything worked out. Zaynutdinov tried to be active. But today, the players who came out as substitutes did not particularly strengthen the game.
— Are Kuchaev and Dzagoev not ready to play 90 minutes?
— They did not play for a while, it is difficult for them to gain condition. But the time they played today, they looked active. I would like this time to be longer, but today's realities are as follows.
