Dyupin produced a fine backs-to-the-wall goalkeeping performance as Rubin Kazan held out under severe pressure from Samara on Monday.

The keeper made seven saves as well as winning 4/4 aerials and 4/4 duels as Samara bombarded his goal. The hosts had seventeen shots in total and Dyupin's best block was in the final minute as he spread himself superbly to deny Samara's attack.

The 31-year-old has, incredibly, made four clean sheets in his last five matches - Kazan's forwards need to step up to support the excellent displays of their goalkeeper.
