The Russian Premier League returns from its three month winter hibernation

The Russian Premier League returns from its three month winter hibernation this weekend with leaders Zenit St Peterburg resuming their push for a fifth title at Ural Yekaterinburg.

Zenit top the table with 34 points from 17 matches, just one point clear of Krasnodar, while CSKA Moscow sit third, three points further back.

Zenit have already shaken off some of the winter cobwebs as they overcame a one-goal deficit to beat Turkish giants Fenerbahce 3-2 on aggregate in the Europa League round of 32.

Krasnodar, who joined Zenit in the Europa League last 16 with a 1-1 draw at German high-flyers Bayer Leverkusen after a goalless first leg at home, will have their title aspirations tested at tough Spartak Moscow.
