The hosts are sweating over the fitness of their star playmaker Zelimkhan Bakaev, who picked up a knock in Spartak Moskva's incredible 0-3 away win at Lokomotiv Moscow. The 23-year-old put in a man-of-the-match performance last week as he set-up all three goals in the match.
Though the club will give Bakaev every chance to prove his match fitness, expect Roman Zobnin to start if Bakaev misses out here.
