Zenit St Petersburg have just about wrapped up the Russian title, nine points clear of second placed CSKA Moscow with four games to play, it will take an unthinkable disaster for Zenit to fail at this stage.
But with three Champions League places available there are three teams battling for the 2nd and 3rd places, CSKA, Rubin and Spartak.
All three have played 26 of their 30 game season, CSKA are currently second on goal difference with 54 points, ahead of third placed Rubin.
Spartak are fourth with 46 points and are desperate to close the gap as the season draws to a close.
Rubin and Spartak come into the game in good league form, both have won four and drawn two of their last six Premier League games.
In that spell Rubin have drawn two Champions League games with Greek side Panathinaikos and have played out 3 goalless draws in their last four games in all competitions.
Spartak have lost twice to Chelsea in the Champions League but will look at back to back league wins including the 1-0 victory over league leaders Zenit as a confidence booster.
