Russian Cup Final, Saturday 25 July, Centralniy Stadium Ekaterinburg

Goal: Dzyuba (pen 84’)

Artem Dzyuba struck a late penalty to win the Russian Cup for Zenit St. Petersburg after Malcom had been brought down in the box. Sergey Semak’s side claimed their second league and cup double after repeating their feat from 2010.

A quiet first half saw few chances, although Dzyuba did deflect a Vyacheslav Karavaev cross onto the post. 

Ilya Lanratov was by far the busier keeper - especially after the break - but he couldn’t keep out Dzyuba’s penalty. With the last touch of the game Egor Danilikin’s header struck the post with Mikhail Kerzhakov stranded. Zenit became four-time Russian Cup winners, earlier they defended champions title in RPL.

Zenit St. Petersburg: Kerzhakov, Karavaev (Smolnikov 90+2’), Rakitskiy, Ivanovic, Douglas Santos (Driussi 76’), Kuzyaev, Barrios, Ozdoev (Zhirkov 76’), Malcom (Shatov 89’), Azmoun (Sutormin 89’), Dzyuba

FC Khimki: Lantratov, Tikhiy, Gapon, Danilikin, Smirnov (Kukharchuk 65’), Troshechkin, Martusevich, Koryan (Aliev 81’), Polyarus (Konate 88’), Bozhenov, Dyadyun (Barkov 65’)
