"To their credit they made the most of their chance. In terms of initiative, the momentum, the quality of play, there's no question who was number one. It's just annoying that we didn't score another three or four goals."
"I'm devastated about the goal being disallowed. It was a good strike. There was no offside," he said.
Pavlyuchenko, who scored a hat-trick as Spartak thrashed Krasnodar Kuban 4-0 to stay top of the Russian Premier League yesterday, added: "God took away our victory in Moscow. He will give it back next time."
