Athletistic/Football. Today, May 11, several matches of the 28th round of the Russian Premier League will take place. Zenit will notably play against CSKA. The match will take place in St. Petersburg at the Gazprom Arena stadium and will start at 19:00 Moscow time. Former player of both teams Maxim Bokov shared his expectations for this match.

— Won’t CSKA sacrifice a championship match to prepare for the Russian Cup?

– Of course not. When I spoke of repetition, I meant that the Cup match would have a special connotation: it is decisive in every sense of the word, the loser is eliminated. And any match between Zenit and CSKA is important in itself, no matter what happens after and what happened before,” Bokov said, as quoted by RB Sport.

Zenit leads the RPL standings with 51 points. CSKA scored 39 points and is in eighth place.
