In Russia Zenit wins a second consecutive season

Zenit St Petersburg was proclaimed Russian Premier League champions for a second sequential season, following a 4-2 victory at Kuban Krasnodar on Sunday, Yahoo Sports reports.

With four rounds to go, Sergey Semak’s team now has an unassailable 13-point advantage over second-placed Lokomotiv Moscow.

After the triumph last season, Zenit’s seventh top-flight win came when they pipped the capital city side too.

League top goalscorer Artem Dzyuba on the 17th and Sardar Azmoun, following his team-mate with his 15th total, all contributed to their Krasnodar accounts amid Daniil Utkin’s double for the hosts.

With a Russian Cup set for July 18, Zenit can add a semi-final against Spartak Moscow to their trophy collection.
