FC Dynamo Moscow 2 0 IFK Göteborg
FT 90 +
HT 0-0

Dynamo Moscow qualified for the final after their 2-0 win against IFK Göteborg. Alexander Büttner and Kevin Kuranyi scored the goals.

Dynamo Moscow fielded a strong team against IFK Göteborg and the Russians quickly became the dominant side. Both teams won their first game in The Atlantic Cup and as such this was the group final.

You can either say that the Swedes defended brilliantly or the Russians attacked poorly. The fact is that the score was 0-0 after the first half where Dynamo Moscow had the Swedish side pressed back in to their own half for long periods of time. Up front Lasse Vibe had the role of the lone striker and the wantaway Dane didn't get a lot of service.

10 minutes into the second half Alexander Büttner displayed that sweet left foot of his. A thunderous strike left John Alvbåge no chance in the goal and Dynamo Moscow deservedly took the lead. Despite several good chances we had to wait until the last minute before we saw another goal.

Kevin Kuranyi claimed a cooly taken goal which cemented Dynamo Moscow's place in the final of The Atlantic Cup 2015. They will face Örebro on Saturday.
