Dear D. Egorov 
If C1 and C2 is a X-ray structures it is not possiable to reproduce structures (I  
have never found it). But you may found position, when the dynamics 
simulations are similar. Calculate near 1.2ns of dynamic for both complexes, 
link trajectories into one file,  make  index group of your ligand and binding 
sites residues and make clustering for this group to linked trajectory. You can 
found some clusteres, which contain frames from trajectory 1 and trajectory 2 
(time less 1.2 ns and time more 1.2 ns) in one cluster. This work at my protein 
of near 300 residues.
