The opponent of our legionnaires in the final is known
Members of the national team of Uzbekistan – Babur Adukhalikov and Shahboz Umarov, defending the honor of the Shymkent “Ordabasy”, can replenish their savings with another prize by the end of the year.
As you know, Ordabasy recently reached the final of the Kazakhstan Cup, defeating one of the strongest teams - Astana in the semifinals.
In the first dispute, the capitals won. However, in the return match in Shymkent, Shahbaz Umarov saved his team from defeat by scoring an excellent goal from a long distance. In the extra halves held to determine the winner, the representatives of Ordabasa scored the winning goal and advanced to the final.
The opponent of "Ordabasy" in the final was determined in the rivalry between the teams of "Atyrau" and "Tobol". In the first match on their own field, the Kostanay team won with a minimum score.
Tobol also dominated the dispute on the opponent's field. Atyrau was able to resist the opponent for only an hour. In the 60th minute, Ivan Rogach scored a goal with his head from the corner of the ball into the opponent's goal.
Having won both meetings with a score of 1-0, the Kostanay team advanced to the final meeting against Ordabasy.
It is worth noting that the Uzbek legionnaire Igor Sergeev, who recently left the team, also played a significant role in Tobol's entry into the finals. Our compatriot helped the residents of Kostanay at the qualifying stages.
The current winner of the Kazakhstan Cup is the Ordabasy team. Last year Shymkent met in the final with the team “Akzhayyk” and in a very difficult match in extra time scored the winning goal and won with a score of 5:4.
Shakhboz Umarov, who this time led the team to the final, is the winner of the Kazakhstan Cup. Now our compatriot has a chance to win this prize for the second time. In addition, Bobur Abdukhalikov can lift the Cup of Kazakhstan for the first time.
There is an interesting fact. Although Shahboz Umarov has not yet won a single national championship in his career, he shows amazing results. During his career, the 24-year-old striker won the Cup of Uzbekistan as part of the AGMK team, as well as the Cup of Belarus together with the BATE team as a legionnaire.
Also in the current season, Ordabasy is the main contender for the Premier League championship. So far, the only competitor of Shymkent residents on the way to gold medals is the Astana team.
Shakhboz Umarov has appeared on the field 19 times this year in Premier League and Cup matches, scoring two goals and an assist.
In his debut season for Ordabasy, Babur Abdukhalikov played 20 matches in these two competitions, scoring six goals and two assists.
