Dynamo Moscow jumps to No. 5 in RPL after 3-0 win against Ural Yekaterinburg

Dynamo Moscow defeated Ural Yekaterinburg 3-0 on Saturday, raising the team to the No. 5 position in the Russian Premier League.

Dynamo's Vladimir Granat scored his second goal of the season in the first 28 minutes of the game, followed by a goal on the hour from Dynamo striker Kevin Kuranyi, who has faced injuries throughout the season, R-Sport reports.

Ural Yekaterinburg's Solosin saved a 66th-minute penalty by Alexander Kokorin after Dynamo's Igor Denisov was fouled in the box.

"The first half we weren't very good, not much came off for us, but we were much better in the second," Dynamo coach Dan Petrescu said, according to R-Sport. "The score doesn't reflect how the game went."
