Russia's Premier League championship will only be decided in the last round of matches on May 21 after front-runners CSKA Moscow and Rostov both won their games on Monday.

Goals in each half from Ahmed Musa and Roman Eremenko took CSKA to a 2-0 victory over Krasnodar while Rostov beat Ural 1-0 thanks to a header by Sardar Azmoun with only 16 minutes left.

That left CSKA with a two-point advantage over Rostov but still unable to wrap up the title until next Saturday. CSKA will visit Rubin Kazan while Rostov travel to Terek Grozny in the final matches.
