The second round of the Russian Premier League is underway and yesterday we had a 0-0 tie between Lokomotiv Moscow and Spartak Moscow. The away side was always on the top and was the only team trying to win this match. The champions Lokomotiv are having a slow start of the season with a sequence of poor matches.
On the other hand Semak is having a good start with Zenit. The team from St. Petersburg won 1-0 against Arsenal Tula and is leader with 6 points. Shatov is having an impressive start of the season and will not be a surprise if we see him back to the national team very soon.
Today we have the last of the candidates playing, with CSKA receiving Rostov. Tomorrow Ufa plays at home against Anzhi, in the game that closes the 2nd round.
