Tough test for Zenit

Axel’s club travel to Moscow to face one of two current main rivals, Spartak, following a poor result over Amkar (1-1) in Petrovsky stadium last week.
Luciano Spalletti’s team are currently leaders in the Russian Premier League with 36 points and look forward to maintain their position, while Spartak stayed on 30 points and 3rd place after a home defeat from second-placed Lokomotiv last week (1-3).
Last year’s game between the two clubs saw Axel Witsel firing two great goals, leading into a massive 2-4 away win.
