But not everyone remained confident in the honest victory of Muscovites. The following day, Krasnodar general director Uladzimir Khashig said that the club would insist on an investigation into the controversial refereeing and the strange coincidence of the bookmakers’ odds in this game. “Perhaps, with the involvement of law enforcement agencies for this investigation,” Khashig added.

CSKA communications director Kirill Breida told reporters that even Krasnodar players said all penalties were indisputable. “There cannot be two opinions here, not about any of the episodes. And we do not follow the coefficients. But it is nice that we are considered favorites. So, they celebrate the work of the team, the coaching staff,” said Breida.

Later, the expert and refereeing commission (ESC) of the RFS considered all the decisions of the main referee of the meeting, Sergey Ivanov, to be accurate.
