Zenit St Petersburg hit the top of the Premier Liga table with a 3-1 win at Amkar Perm. Aleksei Ionov got their first goal after 20 minutes, with Danny making it two not long after.
If there was any doubt, Alexander Bukharov made things safe with ten minutes left, before Ilya Mikhalyov`s last-gasp consolation.
They kept CSKA Moscow at bay, despite their 2-0 win over Rubin Kazan. Mark Gonzalez opened the scoring after 27 minutes, with Seydou Doumbia adding the finishing touches four minutes after the break.
Anzhi Makhachkala saw off bottom club Spartak Moscow 2-1. Dmitri Kombarov got Spartak off to a sixth-minute flyer, only for Jan Holenda and Benoit Angbwa to turn things around.
In the day`s other game, substitute Magomed Ozdoev scored the only goal as Lokomotiv Moscow beat former leaders Volga Nizhny Novgorod 1-0.
