After a 4-2 victory on Sunday at Kuban Krasnodar, champions of the Russian Premier League have declared Zenit St Petersburg for a second consecutive season, reports Yahoo Sports.
Sergey Semak ‘s team now has an unassailable 13-point lead over second-placed Lokomotiv Moscow, with four rounds to go. Zenit ‘s seventh top-flight win came after last season ‘s triumph when they also pipped the side of the capital.
League top goalscorer Artem Dzyuba on the 17th and Sardar Azmoun, after his team-mate with his fifteenth number, both added to their Krasnodar accounts amid Daniil Utkin’s double for the hosts.
With a Russian Cup scheduled for July 18, Zenit will add a semi-final to their trophy collection against Spartak Moscow.
