A defeat for the football club Zenit ended the match of the 29th round of the Russian Football Premier League against Lokomotiv. The St. Petersburg team lost with a score of 0: 1 in Moscow on May 5.
The only goal on the 88th minute was scored by the Portuguese striker Lokomotiv Eder.
Thus, the “Locomotive” for the tour until the end of the season was out of reach for competitors (57 points, in “Spartacus”, located in second place – 53) and won the championship Premier League. The last time this was possible for railway workers in 2004.
