Fears were not vain: in the 1st half of the game, which was preceded by a colorful opening radically updated “Ekaterinburg-arena”, designed for the 2018 world Cup, the team of bison coaches Alexandr Tarkhanov has opened the account. Romanians Eric Bicfalvi took advantage of the inconsistency of the defense of “Spartacus” (Oh, get over it the nuts, I feel the guys from Massimo Carrera!).
Despite the fact that, one day, match of the championship of Russia in this stadium has already passed (with Rubin), before game with “Spartak” took place, figuratively speaking, ribbon cutting: oration of the Sverdlovsk Governor Kuyvashev, ceremonies and so on. Of course, in this day “Ural” in the mood — especially in contrast to may of the guests. Won — 2:1 (in the 2nd half on a goal by Egyptian Othman El Kabir replied Spartak Dutchman Quincy promes).
