In recent years, looking for intrigue in the Russian Premier League is becoming more complicated and complicated. Zenit dominates the domestic arena with such a large margin that the rare failures of blue-white-blue are the result of their own mistakes than the success of the opponent. Of course, Zenit has financial capabilities incomparable with other RPL teams. But along with this, the St. Petersburg club is also an absolute monolith from the point of view of its structure – stable, like a Swiss franc. After all, while the rest are in a state of ongoing confusion, changing coaches, sports and even general directors, like gloves, Sergey Semak wins the title with Zenit for the fourth time in a row.

So the champion match of the St. Petersburg club was held in the same direction. Even before the start of this game, Dynamo was self -packed from the race for the title, losing to the Urals in their field. So Zenit was enough to beat Lokomotiv – and the point is in the hat. Ultimately, this was done without any obstacles. All the problems that the railway workers were able to create were invented by the Zenitites themselves. In essence, from these sticks to its own wheels and a meeting began on the Gazprom Arena. In the fourth minute, Nuraly Alip did not quite successfully threw back to Mikhail Kerzhakov, and Zenit’s goalkeeper even less confidently knocked out the ball and ended up the shell of Girano Kerke, who was given, which Immediately sent him into an empty gate.

In the 27th minute, Zenit equalized the score: Claudinho made an cast to the left bar, Yuri Alberto crossed the ball to the right, and Ivan Sergeyev beautifully closed his head with his head. Ten minutes before the break, the hosts almost brought themselves the second. Kerk ran into a counterattack on the right flank, cut out the transfer to the center to Wilson Isidore, and the French striker took advantage of the fact that Kerzhakov left the gate, and transferred the goalkeeper, but, fortunately for the Zenitians, inaccurately. At the end of the Time, Zenit had a few chances and eventually stepped forward.

At the second half, Lokomotiv seemed to have not come out. Immediately after the break, Sergeyev could take a double twice. At first, the Russian striker ran into a counterattack, but he was covered by the defender of the guests Tin Elovay. Then the striker scored after a beautiful combination, but Daler Kuzyaev gave the program, according to the referee, he was in a position outside the game.Time after time, “Zenith” continued to create chances at the gates of “Locomotive”, until finally got his way. In the 77th minute, Sergeev on the right flank gave a pass to Andrey Mostovoy, who flew into the penalty area and easily outplayed Guilherme, putting an end to both this match and the title race.

It is difficult to say what was more this season – coaching and club triumph or hegemony, stagnation in the development of the league itself, the lack of quality management personnel and other similar problems. Zenit has no equal rivals for a long time: neither Dynamo, nor CSKA, nor Lokomotiv, nor Spartak have come up with this role. But in the past, when our clubs flew past European competitions, they performed on the international arena, plus or minus, equally badly (of course, with rare exceptions). So Zenit is really the best Russian team right now. The only pity is that with an international context, the best among the worst.
