All eyes on the Russian Premier

All eyes on the Russian Premier. 52751.jpeg

Anything could happen in the Russian Premier league, with three teams separated by two points and CSKA taking on Lokomotiv in the Moscow derby. A draw in Moscow could see Zenit clinch the title with a win at Kuban and would see André Villas-Boas hoist his first silver in Russia, after a disastrous home game against Dinamo.

 Russian Premier League (After 29 matches - 1 to go)

 An emotional day at the top of the Russian Premier League, with Zenit and Lokomotiv both losing and CSKA moving into top spot. Zenit's home defeat by 4-2 to Dinamo Moskva provoked a pitch invasion and means that CSKA relies on itself in the last game of the season. CSKA is top with 61 points, Zenit second with 60 and Lokomotiv Moskva third with 59.

CSKA beat Tom 2-0 in Moscow and Lokomotiv lost by the same score in Rostov. In the last game, Lokomotiv plays at CSKA's stadium and Zenit plays at Kuban. However the pitch invasion at Zenit might see the disciplinary committee awarding the game to Dinamo 3-0.
