Anji gained convincing victory in their first opening match.Anji first game of the pre-season campaign was played in the Kislovodsk central stadium and attended by 100-150 spectators mostly represented by the local fans or those who arrived there to rest from Dagestan.
It stands to reason, that with all due respect to our opponent, the spectators came to see the Dagestani team`s play. It`s remarkable that Gazprom Transgaz Stavropol became an assign of Dynamo Stavropol. That`s why the team that took the field against the Dagestani club was called not GTS, but Dynamo GTS. The team is coached by Valery Zazdravnykh who is well-known to the Dagestani football fans as he had worked at Dynamo Makhachkala.
Anji`s rival has just started the camp while the Makhachkala team has only two remaining days at camp. Five potential newcomers of Anji started the game. The Dagestani team dominated through the opening minutes of the match. The Makhachkala team took easy control of the ball on the Dynamo GTS team`s upfield. The Three other goals were scored by Islamnur Abdulavov, Magomed Musalov and Tofik Kadimov. Rizvan Umarov who replaced Serder Serderov scored brace.
Abdulavov`s goal made on the 63rd minute turned out rather amusing.And again Tofik Kadimov scored in the one-to-one situation on the 78th minute assisted by Umarov.In total, perhaps, the opponents deserved a consolation goal, mostly thanks to the quality, but not the quantity of their threatening shots.
