The CSKA striker summed up the results of the first match with Lokomotiv.
— We managed to play better, win the single combat, which was shown by the first goal, just where Maxim won it. It is precisely from such trifles that the decisive moments of this meeting will be built.
— Is it easier for CSKA to fight with Lokomotiv than with the unpredictable Severstal?
— There are pros and cons. The team is well-known to us, organized, and difficult to play against. As a whole, there will be such matches.
— CSKA knows how to change, adapt to the opponent, change tactics. Can we say that the teams play similar in style?
— Let's see how the series will develop. Then let's say what style the teams have. Maybe something will change in the next game, maybe you will see more goals.
— The first period today was a bit shocking, was CSKA only defending?
— Everyone understands that the opponent is strong. We have rebuilt. That's why the game lasts 60 minutes.
