Kuban Krasnodar hung on with ten men to earn a goalless draw at Mordovia Saransk and remain unbeaten after three rounds of the Russian Premier League.

Brazilian striker Danilo was sent off in the 69th minute to leave the visitors a man down, but they stuck to their task to earn a point.

Kuban have five points from three outings, to take a mid-table position in which they lead Mordovia by one point. Zenit St. Petersburg and CSKA Moscow continue to lead the way, with both posting three wins so far.
