“Spartak” needs to show strength in the match with “Zenith” and recover from a devastating loss in the first round of the championship. This was announced to RBC Sport by former Spartak, Lokomotiv and Russian national team midfielder Alexander Samedov.
“I hope that Spartak can recover from the last loss against Zenit. It’s clear that based on the ranking, Zenit is stronger than Spartak, but I don’t think the difference in level is colossal. The composition of the Moscow “Spartak” allows you to demonstrate good football. Zenit is an ambiguous favorite of the match, plus Spartak should try to move up the rankings. Zenit needs to show its strength and prove that it is the only flagship of our football, but we will see if it works” Samedov said.
Semak responded to the question about the continuation of work at Zenit
The central match of matchday 29 of the Russian Premier League (RPL), in which Spartak will host Zenit St. Petersburg, will take place on May 15 at the Otkritie Bank Arena.
