last year's win at fc barcelona is precious to fc rubin kazan goalkeeper sergei ryzhikov but ahead of their return to camp nou he suspects the hosts will want to take them down a peg.
only one team managed an away win against fc barcelona in europe or the spanish liga last season – fc rubin kazan. on tuesday they may need to do so again if they are to stay in the uefa champions league.
if rubin want to progress from group d, they must pick up more points at camp nou against section winners barcelona than second-placed fc københavn manage at home to eliminated panathinaikos fc. however, the russian side's 2-1 success in barcelona last october – when despite having just three goal attempts to the blaugrana's 24, goalkeeper sergei ryzhikov stood firm – offers hope.
"that match was one of the most memorable of my life," ryzhikov told uefa.com. "that win was top class. a lot of teams dream about beating barcelona at camp nou, but not many succeed. even real madrid were not able to do it recently. nevertheless i believe our best matches are still to come both in terms of performances and results."
rubin, who kept their chances alive with a 1-0 defeat of københavn a fortnight ago, have not played since their russian premier league campaign ended with a 28 november draw at fc lokomotiv moskva. their two-year reign as domestic champions closed with a third-place finish, considered disappointing by some but not by ryzhikov.
"we have taken a small step forward compared with last year but it is very important nonetheless in terms of rubin establishing themselves as a big club," said the 30-year-old, who has extended his contract until 2014.
last season, despite their victory at camp nou, competition debutants rubin came third in the group after a 2-0 matchday 6 loss at eventual champions fc internazionale milano. this term, they are again guaranteed at least a uefa europa league round of 32 berth.
"i would say both our campaigns have been successful," said ryzhikov. "after five games we have six points – the same as last year. maybe the group was stronger last year but this time three teams have been fighting for second place. whatever, we have already booked our european place for the new year."
the result rubin may come to rue was their opening loss at københavn, falling to an 87th-minute dame n'doye goal. "on the one hand i feel we were unlucky that evening," the keeper said. "on the other we lost concentration and were punished. as a result we are now in third place, where we are likely to finish."
they can yet do even better if they extend their unbeaten record against barcelona, having also held the catalans at home both this season and last. "i think they have a grudge against us and will try to do everything to take rubin down a peg," ryzhikov warned.
andreu fontàs and víctor vázquez scored their first goals for the catalan giants as a precocious side swept aside rubin at the camp nou.
a youthful fc barcelona side did what their senior colleagues had failed to do in three attempts as the spanish champions ended group d with a 2-0 win against fc rubin kazan.
andreu fontàs and substitute víctor vázquez scored the goals – their first for the club – at the start and end of the second half as the section winners passed rubin into submission. in any event, the visitors' uefa champions league days were numbered as fc københavn's 3-0 win against panathinaikos fc meant this result was academic, and they will now turn attention to the uefa europa league.
andrés iniesta, lionel messi and xavi hernández were named in an all-barcelona shortlist for the fifa ballon d'or on monday but none were in the starting xi as josep guardiola, with top spot already assured, experimented. fontàs and thiago alcántara were handed their uefa champions league debuts but before their merits could be assessed the coach had other things to concern him.
the game was 13 minutes old when jeffren limped off with a groin strain and before half-time bojan krkić had joined him in the treatment room after a blow to the head. as if guardiola's intention to blood the newest alumni of barcelona's renowned la masia youth system had not been clear their replacements were vázquez, on his second uefa champions league outing, and another debutant, marc bartra.
naturally the passing and movement were less fluid, less confident, and the hosts could have fallen behind on 15 minutes. gökdeniz karadeniz fed the overlapping cristian ansaldi on the left and whether the argentinian meant to shoot or cross the effect was a superb stop from one of the old guard; the 35-year-old pinto, who was deputising for víctor valdés.
barcelona's injuries meant they reverted from a three to a four-man back line, but the flip side was that defenders had more scope to attack – fontàs needed no invitation. six minutes after the restart thiago cut in from the right following a corner and the central defender, 21, stabbed the ball in via the outstretched hand of vitali kaleshin.
the highlight of the remainder of the match looked like being either the introduction of messi, who produced some trademark dribbling, or rubin's best chance which rafał murawski flicked casually into pinto's hands. barcelona would not be denied by these opponents a fourth time, however, and with seven minutes remaining adriano fed vázquez, who bent a right-footed shot past the exposed sergei ryzhikov.
devler ligi'nde rubin kazan mucizeyi gerçekleştiremedi, nou camp'ta ispanyol devi barcelona'ya boyun eğdi. gökdeniz ve arkadaşları yollarına avrupa ligi'nde devam edecek.
şampiyonlar ligi’nde a, b, c ve d grubu’nda son maçlar salı gecesi oynandı. gruptan çıkmak için barcelona’yı nou camp’ta yenip, kopenhag’ın yenilgisine ihtiyacı olan gökdeniz karadeniz’in ekibi rubin kazan, mucizeyi gerçekleştiremedi.
