___________________________________________________________________

The last match of the season. At Petrovskij Stadium, Zenit and Lokomotiv will take part in a pointless game, which could be a sort of preview of the Super Cup match that will be played in July.

Zenit has already won the championship and tomorrow will wear a special gold kit to celebrate its 5th title. There also will be a celebration where Danny will have the opportunity to say goodbye to Saint Petersburg. In fact, his contract expires this summer and it won't be extended. Even Tymoshchuk is in the same situation and could leave soon Zenit. 

Villas Boas should give some playing time to the players that have been less used. As happened in Perm', Malafeev should be in the starting line-up. Anyukov could take the place of Smolnikov, while Kerzhakov could replace Rondon. Hulk got his 4th yellow card of the season at Zvezda Stadium and so will be absent. 

By contrast, Lokomotiv could have only one last task: try to beat Zenit and to overcome Spartak. Both 'Railroaders' and 'Myaso' have 43 points, but the latter are ahead thanks to the number of victories. In the last round of RPL, Spartak will play at home against Amkar, who defeated Zenit last week. 

Niasse and Fernandes are both disqualified, with the former that will miss the next four games after the episode during the game against Kuban'. The latter, instead, also got injured during the last training. Abaev will probably go on holiday and then will return only to prepare the 2015/16 season. Although Boussoufa has trained individually during the last days, he should fly to Saint Petersburg with the team and to be in the starting line-up. Skuletic should have an important chance to demonstrate his value, after the disqualification of Niasse and Pavlyuchenko in doubt. 

Regarding the new coach, Smorodskaya said: "I've already known the name of new coach." A lot of rumors followed these words. I'm sure everything will be clear after the match against Zenit.
