In terms of the standings, Zenit are in at the 2nd spot with 11 points on board. They’ve won three and drawn two games so far, and are a point adrift to table toppers Dynamo Moscow. Zenit’s last two fixtures have been 1-1 draws to Lokomotiv Moscow and FC Ufa respectively, as they look to get back to winning ways. CSKA Moscow, on the other hand, are in at the 6th spot with nine points under their belts. Although, they have lost two games so far, their previous two fixtures have been wins over FC Rostov and Akhmat Grozny.  That being said, we can expect the upcoming fixture to be a closely contested affair.
