Krasnodar boosted their hopes of qualifying for next season's UEFA Europa League with a 2-1 Russian Premier League win away at Dinamo Moscow. Aleksandr Kokorin opened the scoring for Dinamo just before the half hour but Aleksei Kozlov was then sent off three minutes into the second half.
Krasnodar made their advantage count and two goals in seven minutes from Roman Shirokov and Ricardo Laborde saw them to victory before the latter was also dismissed a minute from time. The result leaves Krasnodar just one point behind fifth-placed Spartak Moscow who lost 2-1 away at Rubin Kazan.
Yura Movsisyan handed Spartak a 56th-minute lead but Marko Devic and Alexander Prudnikov handed the home side all three points. In the day's other game, CSKA Moscow were 4-0 winners over ten-man Kuban Krasnodar.
Steven Zuber opened the scoring and Seydou Doumbia doubled CSKA's advantage from the penalty spot with Roman Bugaev dismissed just before half time. Second-half goals from Konstantin Bazelyuk and Zoran Tosic then sealed a comprehensive victory.
