Spartak sink CSKA, Kuban beaten
Kuban Krasnodar's flying start to life in the Premier Liga stalled still further as Lokomotiv Moscow leapfrogged them in the table with a 2-1 victory in today's meeting between the two sides.
Maicon gave the hosts a sixth-minute lead which was extended on the hour by Senijad Ibricic before Lacina Traore grabbed a late consolation for Kuban.
