Dinamo defeat Tomsk, Krylya edge Grozny
Dinamo Moscow climbed up to third spot in the penultimate round of the Russian Premier League regular season with a 2-0 away win over bottom-side Tomsk.
First-half goals from Zvjezdan Misimovic and Kevin Kuranyi set Dinamo on their way and even though the visitors were reduced to ten men following the 65th-minute dismissal of Vladimir Granat, they had already done enough to claim the win.
Dinamo, who were already guaranteed a top-eight finish and a place in the championship play-offs, are now third in the standings on 54 points, two above city rivals Lokomotiv.
Tomsk, having now taken just one point from their last 11 matches, have long been consigned to playing in the relegation play-offs as one of the teams in the bottom eight, along with the other two sides in action today, Krylya Sovetov and Terek Grozny.
Krylya won that contest 2-1, taking the lead in the 31st minute through Anton Bober and then, after Mauricio had drawn Terek level soon after, claiming the victory through Pavel Yakovlev's effort eight minutes into the second half.
