AFP

AFP, MOSCOW: Reigning Russian Premier League champions Spartak Moscow boosted their chances of challenging for the title again with a 4-1 win at Krasnodar on Saturday.

A brace by Brazilian Luiz Adriano and goals by Cape Verde's Ze Luis and Dutchman Quincy Promes gave the 10-time champions a confident win which lifted them into fourth.

“It was harder than one might imagine looking at the scoreline,” Spartak manager Massimo Carrera said.

“We played well in the first half and managed to change things for the better in the second when Krasnodar put us under pressure. The win left us in the race and we're going to battle for the title to the end.”

Krasnodar started in a lively fashion and in the fourth minute striker Fedor Smolov, the Russian league's top scorer in the last two seasons, hit the woodwork with a powerful shot from the edge of the area.

Spartak replied positively and four minutes later left back Dmitry Kombarov found the unmarked Adriano in the area and the 30-year-old striker fired the ball home.

Ze Luis added his goal in the 28th minute when after a pinpoint pass by Adriano in the box and sent the ball into the net past helpless 'keeper Andrei Sinitsyn.

After the break the hosts dominated the play to no immediate result, while Adriano increased Spartak's lead with four minutes to go with his second of the match.
