Zenit and Lokomotiv's first Super Cup clash
Zenit St. Petersburg and Lokomotiv Moscow have battled for domestic titles for decades. The first Super Cup match-up between the two sides happened in March 2008, where league champions Zenit faced the cup winners Lokomotiv faced at the reknown Luzhniki Stadium. Arshavin took Zenit ahead, although Rodolfo equalized not long after. However, Russian forward Pavel Pogrebnyak scored the winner to bring Zenit its first Russian Super Cup.
