Zenit St. Petersburg defender Rodrigao considers the defeat by Lokomotiv Moscow in the ninth round match of the Russian Football Championship unacceptable.
“How do I feel after a long break? I went through a difficult period. Everyone supported me. I feel great. But this defeat is a disastrous result,” Match TV quotes Rodrigao.

“We didn’t convert many chances. Today, unfortunately, we lost, but we leave the field with our heads held high,” Rodrigao added.
The meeting in St. Petersburg at the Gazprom Arena stadium ended with a score of 2:1 in favor of the guests. Maxim Glushenkov (50th minute) and Nair Tiknizyan (91st minute) scored goals for the winners. The only goal for the hosts was scored by Mateo Cassierra (22nd).
