Spartak Fans See Double




The featured match in this weekend's Russian Soccer League play will see current champion Spartak-Alania of Valdikavkaz visit last year's titleholder, Spartak Moscow, Saturday at Lokomotiv Stadium.


Last Sunday, Spartak-Alania was in Moscow to play Dinamo, in a match that ended in controversy when the referee was allegedly assaulted after a 1-1 draw.


Spartak-Alania leads this year's standings with 10 points from four games. Spartak Moscow has six points from three games, having started its season late due to European Champions' Cup commitments.


This is Alania's last league game in Moscow until August.
