The 2nd round of the Russian Premier League is completed and Rostov surprisingly joined Zenit in the top of the league. The team from the south of Russia surprised CSKA with an early goal by Parshivlyuk and despite the pressure from the home team the result did not change. CSKA has only 1 point in 2 matches and even with the signing of Abel Hernandez the team looks short in options when comparing with other of the favorites.
Highlight to the surprising home defeat of Krylya Sovetov against Orenburg (0-3) and Ufa’s dominant home win against Anzhi (3-0).
The 3rd round starts this Friday with the match between Ural and Dynamo Moscow. On Monday we have the top match of the week, when Zenit travels to Kazan to play against Rubin. The match between Ufa and Krasnodar should be postponed as UEFA moved their game of the Europa League from Thursday to Tuesday.
