CSKA Moscow Vs. Zenit St. Petersburg, Russian Premier League: Lineups

With very little to lose, it wouldn't be surprising to see both CSKA Moscow and Zenit St. Petersburg going all out for the win in Saturday's Russian Premier League encounter. That's certainly the case for CSKA, who have selected a very attacking lineup, but we'll have to wait and see how Zenit's setup takes shape. Luciano Spalletti's team selection could be either a balanced, but still positive setup or it could get very negative and defensive very quickly. Here are the lineups.

CSKA Moscow lineup: Akinfeev; Ignashevich, A. Berezutsky, V. Berezutsky, Odiah, Rahimic, Mamaev, Honda, Dzagoev, Doumbia, Vagner Love

Zenit St. Petersburg lineup: Malafeev; Alves, Anyukov, Lombaerts, Criscito, Hubocan, Zuryanov, Denisov, Faitzulin, Danny, Kerzhakov

The Russian Premier League has a second stage in the Spring where the championship will be decided, so both teams are fighting simply to solidify their place, not for points towards the title. CSKA sits on top of the table with Zenit in second place, seven points behind their rivals.
