“Spartak” needs to show strength in the match with “Zenith” and rehabilitate for a devastating defeat in the first round of the championship. This was announced to RBC Sport by the ex-midfielder of Spartak, Lokomotiv and the Russian national team Alexander Samedov.

“I hope that Spartak will be able to rehabilitate for the last defeat from Zenit. It is clear that according to the standings, Zenit is stronger than Spartak, but I don’t think that 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 climb up in the standings. Zenit needs to show their strength and demonstrate that they are the sole flagship of our football, but we’ll see if it works out,” Samedov said.
