Lokomotiv start strong in Russia
Lokomotiv Moscow came from behind to beat newly-promoted Mordovia Saransk 3-2 away from home and start the new Russian Premier League season with three points.
The hosts had led through Kirill Panchenko after 16 minutes, but two goals in the space of five minutes from Dmitri Torbinsky and Magomed Ozdoev turned the game around just after the half-hour mark for new Lokomotiv coach Slaven Bilic.
Debutant Vedran Corluka, signed from Tottenham this summer, then made it 3-1 seven minutes before half-time.
Eugeniy Osipov got a goal back for the hosts just after the hour mark, but they could not find an equaliser despite the late dismissal of Ozdoev for hitting out at Yuri Kuleshov.
