CSKA Moscow grabbed their fourth Russian Premier League title on Saturday following a 0-0 draw with Kuban Krasnodar.
That result left the Krasno-sinie on 64 points with one match still to play. It means they are six points clear of the now deposed champions Zenit St Petersburg, who have two games left but cannot now overhaul CSKA.
Even if Zenit won their last two matches and CSKA lost next week, leaving the two sides level on points, the first tie-breaker is decided on the number of victories and with just 17 so far, Zenit cannot match CSKA's 20.
CSKA previously won the Russian title in 2003, 2005 and 2006. They have also won six Russian cups, seven Soviet league titles and five Soviet cups.
