The last matches of Uzbekistan Oliy Liga are over as FC Lokomotiv celebrated their championship in the league in the 30th matchday on Saturday.
Andrey Miklyaev’s side finished the league with a 3-2 victory in the exciting match against FC Bunyodkor at the Lokomotiv Stadium.
The Swallows’ keeper was helpless in front of Sardor Mirzaev’s classical finish in the 27th minute of the game as the host took the lead before Doston Khamdamov equalised the scoring six minutes later.
Olabrian Blessing returned the lead for the title holders just two minutes after the second-period kick-off, while he converted a goal from a 12-yard penalty spot. In 71 minutes, referee Viktor Serazitdinov pointed to the spot second time against FC Bunyodkor as they conceded the third and lost their hopes of a win.
However, Akrom Komilov’s stunning goal with a long-range shot returned the intrigue to the game as his goal reminded us a spectacular goal of Van Bronckhorst of Netherlands against Uruguay in the 2010 World Cup semi-finals.
