Saturn Victory Sends It to Top

Moscow regional team Saturn went to the top of the Russian Premier League for the first time ever with a 2-0 win over Rostselmash Rostov on Tuesday.

After two wins in two games, Saturn, now officially called Saturn-REN TV after a preseason sponsorship deal, lead Krylya Sovietov, which beat Alania 4-1 in Vladikavkaz and Spartak Moscow, which won 3-0 at home to Shinnik Yaroslavl, by two points.

Two goals from the much talked about 18-year-old forward Dmitry Sychev helped champion Spartak to an easy win over newly promoted Shinnik.

Last year's runner-up, Lokomotiov Moscow, is presently in fourth place, also on four points, after a 0-0 draw away at Uralan Elista.
