Date: Saturday, 23 July, 2016
Start time: 17:00 UK
The champion CSKA Moscow will face the winner of the Cup Zenit St. Petersburg in the match for the Supercup of Russia at stadium “Lokomotiv” in Moscow.
Last year, Zenit won the Super Cup after defeated Lokomotiv Moscow. The team of Mircea Lucescu showed a very strong game in his last friendlies game, beating Monaco (3:1), Sporting Lisbon (4:2) and Basel (4:1). At the beginning of their training, they cashed few losses but then were without their Russian internationals. In the summer Zenit parted with large star Hulk, who passed for 55 million in China.
CSKA Moscow won Russian Super Cup twice in the last three seasons. Moscow Grand also parted with one of the strongest players – Ahmed Musa, who was sold into champions of England – Leicester. In the team returned Bulgarian international Georgi Milanov, who last season was rent Grasshoppers. Lassie striker Traore also remains in the team after defending the colors of Monaco last season. He will have to replace the departed Musa as currently only a classy player in attack
Last season Zenit won two times against CSKA as the first match between the two teams ended in a draw. Zenit triumphed in the Cup right after the victory against its biggest rival in Russia. Currently, the team from Sankt Peterburg has a better squad and I think Zenit will win the Super Cup in regular time.
